We are so excited about this collaboration between Aruba Red and Cacao Love! 

Chocolate in its most natural, nutritious and delicious form. Deep, grounding and heart-opening. This variety of cacao is well suited for ceremonies, meditation and stillness in nature. It is easy to prepare and melts on the stove into a sensuously smooth elixir - it is also perfect for your first encounter with the spirit of Mama cacao.

This ancient strain "Criollo Cacao" is sourced from organic farmer's co-operatives in the Peruvian Andes. From "seed to ceremony" Cacao Love only work with co-operatives and family-run businesses, supporting indigenous entrepreneurship - working with small farmers to preserve traditional methods of cultivating, processing and harvesting.

Founding principles:

1) Prioritising quality over quantity
2) Supporting Andean mega-biodiversity, not homogenisation
3) Promoting organic methods of production
4) Fair income distribution amongst the people participating as suppliers, transformers and traders
5) Social responsibility, following the principles of Fair Trade

Cacao Love's co-op works alongside the farmers, generating employment for the local community and offering training and financial support for indigenous entrepreneurship.
