Ocumare cacao beans come mainly from the Criollo cacao variety, regarded as one of the highest-quality cacao varieties in the world. Criollo cacao trees grow at elevations ranging from 300 to 1300 meters above sea level and reach heights of 4 to 8 meters. Criollo cacao fruits have a characteristic shape similar to cigarettes, and its insides contain from 20 to 40 cacao seeds, called beans.

Ocumare cacao beans are characterized by a rich, complex flavour with floral, fruity, and nutty notes. Due to the diversity of climate and soil in the Ocumare region, cacao beans from this region may have slightly different flavours depending on specific plantations.

Properties of cacao beans

Cacao contains more antioxidants than red wine and 3 times more than green tea.

Cacao is an important source of tryptophan, which affects the formation of serotonin, and phenylethylamine, which supports the synthesis of dopamine, and a number of vitamins B, C and E.

In addition, cacao contains a number of mineral salts such as magnesium, iron, chromium, phosphorus, calcium, sulphur, zinc, potassium and selenium.

Furthermore, the high content of healthy cacao fat, theobromine and anandamide makes cacao a natural, mild stimulant.

All this makes cacao a natural, powerful antidepressant, mood enhancer and energiser.

Our ambition is to import both ceremonial cacao and powder cacao from all over the world. We aim to bring organic BIO cacao everywhere. However, we sometimes travel to really wild and faraway places where we also meet extremelly pure cacao farms. Those ones are not labeled with certificates, as very often not tauched with civilisation at all or people there are too poor to apply for them. For sure the whole cacao we sell is 100 per cent vegan and kosher.
