Love having hot chocolate that is just cacao? It’s all natural, chocolatey, rich, and just plain AWESOME! Enjoy a morning boost and wellness benefits of cacao from Asami. It is more cocoa tea than hot chocolate (or coffee). it is ground relatively coarse and includes husk for color and flavor.
Move over coffee, cacao brew is here.
Exceptionally rich with dark earthy chocolate flavor notes of cocoa, nuts and dried fruits, notably raisins.
Our 100% pure ground cacao from Ghana is deliciously smooth. It brews just like coffee and has incredible mood-boosting properties; theobromine, which is also high in antioxidants and flavonoids. Cacao is an amazing superfood loaded with nutrients. Great served hot or iced. Enjoy a natural alternative to chocolate or coffee straight from Africa.
Studies have shown that cacao is packed with health benefits. In particular, cacao is naturally rich in antioxidants, flavonoids and a natural compound called theobromine, which provides a gentle energy boost while relaxing the body, decreasing blood pressure, improving brain function, and supporting healthy digestion, circulation and respiration. Cacao is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, calcium, copper and zinc.
