High quality unroasted cocoa beans are the starting point for making a great batch of chocolate. Inside these bags, you’ll find beans straight from origin, ready to be sorted, roasted, cracked, winnowed, and refined in your home.
These beans come from Maya Mountain Cacao, Ltd., a social enterprise in southern Belize. In our roast, we taste ripe pineapple, chocolate undertones, with peaches and cream at the finish. For the best tips and tricks we’ve found to turn these beans into delicious chocolate, check out our new book, Making Chocolate.
Keep in mind that unroasted beans are a contamination hazard, and it’s important to follow the recommendations on the bags for how to properly handle them when making your chocolate at home.
We can’t wait for you to experiment with these beans!
