Cocoa beans are the basis of chocolate production.
The theobroma cacao tree, which originates from the tropical climate of South America, is the sacred tree of the Mayans and Aztecs. Cacao beans are a delicious superfood because they contain a variety of antioxidants and other nutrients. Cocoa beans produced by Peruvian organic producers contain more antioxidants than red wine and three times more than green tea. Cocoa beans are a rich source of minerals. The raw beans are picked by hand, cleaned in clean water and the best quality ones are selected, then roasted.
The production process preserves the nutritional value of the beans without any additives.
