Zeremonieller Kakao in Block anstatt Kakaopulver

Why so cheap?

That chocolate is so cheap elsewhere should make you think ...

1 aromatic cocoa tree produces approx. 2kg cocoa beans per year !!!.!!!).

We lose about 30-20 weight after roasting & amp; Peel..

This work is in every cocoa bar

Cocoa is laboriously harvested, fermented for 5 days, dried for 2 weeks.

Then the cocoa beans travel around the world & amp; small batches are 15 min. roasted.

Then the shell is separated from the core & amp; the kernels are ground to cocoa mass between stone rollers for 24 hours.

The liquid cocoa mass is poured into molds by hand & amp; cools in the fridge for 1 hour before it is packed and sent to you.

All of this for 1-3€ Per Blackboard like in the supermarket 

This is only possible when bulk cocoa is grown in monocultures with little flavor, a lot of volume, minimal wages are paid, if at all, is produced in large batches & amp; the valuable cocoa mass of course with sugar, cocoa butter & amp; Milk powder is stretched.wird.


Here is a video of the cocoa harvest in Trinidad - in the middle of the bush on former plantations that have been overgrown for 40 years.
