Quality you can taste!
We want to Share the Love in everything we do, from how farmers are paid to how we caretake the earth, from the quality of our processing to the consistency of our product. This is why we guarantee what we make and know you’ll love it!
All our cacao is all from Guatemala, whose climate and soils grow some of the best cacao. We source exclusively from small family farms, located in an area with a long history as a prime cacao growing region.
The cacao is certified organic, without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. We pay above international prices for cacao, ensuring that the small-scale farmers and workers all along the production process receive a fair wage.
The farm we work with selects premium varieties to plant and propagate. After the cacao pods are harvested, the cacao beans are fully fermented by professionals trained in this vital, often lacking, step. Once the beans have undergone their transformation, they are sun-dried and sent to our chocolate shop.
We work closely with a bean-to-bar chocolatier who then precision roast the beans and remove the husks. The hand-crafted block of cacao we carry is made by grinding the nibs into a fine paste and tempering the final product.

Love this cacao!
I stock up on embue’s beautiful imports of cacao with terroir and integrity. It is a gift I love to share.
Love it! I drink some every day! Heart chakra is wide open!
A friend gifted me this and I adore it, just restocked another bag and the shipping was very fast. I love using this in the morning and infuse it into smoothies and sweet creations as well. Such great quality and I love supporting a small family owned business. Thank you Embue!
Overall i was very happy with the cacao powder. Please note that it is not your typical cacao powder that you would buy at the store or online, meaning that it is not fine powder like those. This one is more chunky or more like shavings of the pure cacao bar. I personally liked it because it was convenient to scoop and make a cacao drink or treat on days i didn't want to cut and measure out the full cacao bar i have. I live in a hot climate state and ordered it in the spring which wasn't that hot yet but i think that with the shipping process some of the cacao powder did lump together to form little chunks of cacao, i personally didn't mind this and they state that some minor melting or lumping won't affect the taste of the cacao. The taste was delicious and it makes a good drink. Just note that it is not your typical cacao powder texture wise ...still super delicious,pure & convenient.
Single Origin Ceremonial Cacao
Cultivated with intention
Our Single-origin cacao is from small family farms in Guatemala. Guatemala has a rich history connected to cacao, and the farms are located in Laguna Lachua, in the north-central area of the country, home to Q’eqchi’ Maya families. The farms are organized as an association to cooperate on the central processes of fermenting & drying.
Quality is everything
We pay a premium price for a premium product. Our long-term relationship offers us consistently high-quality cacao, and the farms access to a stable and high value market so the farmers can earn a living wage. The farmers association is trained in high quality cacao bean production, from varietal selection to the fermentation & sun-drying process, keeping more value-added at the source and ensuring professional standards in growing & processing.
