At Wild Craft, our commitment to ethical sourcing is paramount, as we ensure fair trade practices and support communities that uphold traditional and safe farming techniques. We pride ourselves on sourcing the finest organic heirloom cacao beans, harvested from small family-run farms, nestled within the pristine Amazon Region of Tarapoto, in the San Martin Province of northern Peru.

Our cacao beans are cultivated naturally, free from pesticides, allowing the true essence of the cacao to flourish. Harvested and processed using time-honored methods, each bean carries the rich history of its origins, traditions & blessing of the indigenous people of the land. We prioritise a connection with our sources, fostering relationships with Cacao suppliers who share our values of environmental sustainability and ethical practices.

Originating from the Tarapoto region in northern Peru, our cacao beans boast a freshness that is unparalleled ~ seasonally harvested and regularly stone-ground in small batches. With each harvest, the unique flavor profiles of our beans are shaped by the climate conditions and surrounding flora, resulting in a Ceremonial Cacao that is unique, rich in nutrients and pure.

We hope that you enjoy & indulge in the pure delight of Wild Craft Cacao, where every sip is a celebration of tradition, nature's bounty and the enduring spirit of ethical craftsmanship.

With Love,

Along the journey, from seed, to bean, to cup; we honour the tradition and craftsmanship that goes into every step:

  • Naturally Grown: Our cacao beans are cultivated in harmony with nature, respecting the inherent balance of the ecosystem. The beans are grown organically and bio-dynamically within their native environment.

  • Traditionally Harvested: Hand-harvested by skilled and trained farmers, within a safe, natural environment. We only source fair trade certified Cacao Beans.

  • Fermentation: The beans undergo a fermentation process
    which takes up to a week. During this time, the beans flavour and colour develops, evolving from a white/pink, pulpy and 'sour' tasting bean, to a dark purple/brown, rich and flavorsome bean, which holds the familiar 'chocolate' characteristics of Cacao.

  • Sun Dried: Basking under the gentle rays of the sun, our Cacao Beans are dried to perfection, preserving their nutritional and medicinal potency. The husk dries and forms around the Cacao Bean.

  • Craftsmanship: Each bean is cracked and winnowed to remove the husk, and meticulously inspected by us before processing, to ensure only the finest quality beans are made into your block of Ceremonial Cacao.

  • Stone Grinding: Slowly stone ground in our solar-powered cacao studio, the cacao beans are transformed into a velvety smooth consistency, unlocking their full flavor potential. Every bean passes through our hands, we handcraft your cacao with Love, and Intention.

  • Setting: After 24+ hours, the Ceremonial Cacao is ready to be poured and set overnight. Your Cacao is still alive ~ the 'Cacao Bloom' that develops in this time is your Cacao's own unique fingerprint.

  • Eco-Conscious Packaging: Packed with care in 100% biodegradable materials, we uphold our commitment to sustainability.

  • Delivered with Love: Your parcel of pure Ceremonial Cacao; fostering the essence of our dedication and passion, and the rich history and essence of Mayan tradition, is sent directly to you, our valued customer.
