Hacienda San José Cacao Beans. Select from: 1kg, 5kg, or 25kg bars.
It is during the fermentation process that our award winning dark chocolate flavor is created: creamy and nutty, with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. As soon as the cacao is harvested on our farm, it is carefully drained and pre-dried to ensure we have the exact amount of pulp covering the bean needed for the perfect fermentation. During the fermentation, the temperature is carefully controlled. As an extra step to ensure there are absolutely no traces of acidity, the beans are laid out in the sun for the final stages of drying. This unique process creates an almost almond colored bean.
