Images : Processing of Cocoa Nibs

Cocoa Nib SortingThis machine cracks and sorts whole cocoa beans which are loaded at the top. Beans are sorted into various sizes which include small powder, regular nib sizes and large sizes. The small powder is not usable as nibs but can be used like tea for making a rich hot chocolate. Large sizes are run through the machine a second time. The rear of the machine expels the cocoa husks which can be used for mulch or in soaps and skin products. Open Image Gallery

Cacao Beans From Ecuador

These bars made with the beans from Royal Cacao are absolutely the best we've ever made! They are unbelievably delicious! Thanks Michael for sending such quality cacao.
