Take your chocolate recipes to the next level by incorporating these delectably dark unsweetened 100% cacao coins made from pure, Heirloom Designated Nacional cacao certified by the Heirloom Cacao Preservation (HCP). Ecuadorian Nacional cacao is considered to be the “mother” cacao line and has been harvested by the indigenous peoples of Ecuador for millennia. Believed to be extinct, heirloom crops were discovered and are now leading the rebound of prized Nacional cacao. With its overall smooth flavor and delightfully complex symphony of floral, berry, nutty, and cinnamon notes, Nacional cacao must be tried to appreciate the heirloom chocolate experience.

Basic Preparation
    Cacao coins are ready to eat as-is or melt down as a richer substitute to ordinary cocoa and can be further substituted for dark or semi-sweet chocolate by adding sugar and/or milk.

You can even add these disks to savory dishes such as moles and barbeque sauces to add luxurious chocolate notes. Are you a dark chocolate lover? Is chocolate your superfood?
