Cacao Beans Peeled | Organic - 11 lb
After the ripe pod has been cut from the tree, it is opened, the rind discarded, and the pulp and seeds laid out for several days. During this time the pulp liquefies or “sweats” and fermentation starts, which softens the bitter taste and helps to unlock the full aroma of the cacao bean. This fermentation process is usually followed by roasting, yet our cacao beans remain unroasted - just sun-dried, keeping them raw from start to finish.
