Tasting Notes

Raspberries ∙ Cream ∙ Caramel ∙ Juicy

Our cacao powder is a beautiful expression of the land it is grown on - a lush estate at the base of the Anamalai Hills in Tamil Nadu. It's juicy and bright, with notes of raspberries, caramel and cream. This will make your holiday baking *so* special. 

"This is simply the best cacao powder I've ever purchased/tasted. As a chocolate lover, and someone who's looking to buy more sustainable/fair market products, I've shopped around quite a bit. I've never found one -- until this one -- that meets my desire for sustainability, flavor, and price."

  • Winner of the 2022 Good Food Awards, our cacao powder is organically grown by Harish Manoj Kumar and Karthikeyan Palaniswamy on their family farm at the base of the Western Ghats. It's a minimally processed (not Dutch processed), non-alkalized cacao powder meaning that it's rich in all its naturally occurring nutrients and antioxidants. That super lush chocolatey mouthfeel? Hella cocoa butter, baby!

    Made from Anamalai Estate’s award winning cacao beans, this is a beautiful showcase of the potential of Indian cacao. The fact that these beans are grown on a single estate means that you’re tasting a true expression of terroir i.e. the soil they were planted in, and the seasons they grew through. The cacao is intercropped with nutmeg and coconut palms, on land that was originally a eucalyptus grove, then a guava orchard, and now a diverse ecosystem where desi cows roam by day, and elephants scratch their backs on the coconut palms by night!

    No added sugar. 100% raw cacao powder.
