Cacao Liquor Peruvian - Raw and Organic (250g, 1kg, 5kg, 20kg)


In Stock


Cacao liquor is made by pressing the whole cacao bean and heating it at very low temperatures until it forms a paste. This is the stage before it separates into cacao butter and cacao powder; this is the whole, unrefined raw bean.

Our Cacao Liquor comes from Peru and is guaranteed truly raw. Virtually all cacao products on the market which claim to be raw are made from the raw bean, but in the process of pressing them into the paste or liquor, they become heated. Ours is more crumbly than you may be used to, and the flavour is slightly more bitter. If you care about your foods being actually raw, as we do, then you will appreciate the difference in our product. 

The beans are carefully selected, then washed, disinfected, air-dried, de-husked, pulverized, ground, pressed, molded and tested for heavy metals before packing.

Please note, ceremonial cacao is simply the name given to this kind of high quality raw South American cacao liquor (also known as paste). All our cacao is "ceremonial grade" and suitable for cacao ceremonies.

Kate says, "Making my own homemade raw chocolate is pretty much a weekly task, and this cacao liquor is my favourite way to do it. I melt it along with a little extra cacao butter or coconut oil, then add sweeteners like cane juice crystals and stevia, and include my favourite superfoods - maybe Etherium Gold, E3 AFA or 8 Mushroom. Raw chocolate always tastes best when its freshly made!"

How To Use

Cacao liquor makes an extraordinarily chocolate product because you don't have to add a lot of extra fats to it as you would if you were making raw chocolate with cacao nibs or cacao powder. For an intense chocolate experience, just gently melt your cacao liquor and add your sweeteners and other foods of choice, to taste.

This is cacao is made from pure high quality raw Peruvian beans and is perfect for cacao ceremonies. It would be considered "ceremonial grade."
