Our Roasted Cacao Nibs are made from organic cacao beans from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative.
The beans are naturally processed and sun-dried before being carefully roasted in California for a crunchy, fruity and bright flavor.
With applications far beyond baking, cacao nibs are also an aromatic, a flavor enhancer and an easy way to add depth and complexity to stews and chilis, roasted meat dishes and, of course, desserts.
- Sprinkle over sweets, pastries and ice cream
- Mix with nuts, seeds, oats and dried fruit for a delicious trail mix or granola
- Roughly chop or grind for a meat or tofu rub
- Cloud Forest Muffins
The Kokoa Kamili cooperative is comprised of nearly 3,000 smallholder farmers in the Kilombero Valley. They provide training and support for their member farmers, as well as cocoa tree seedlings (over 140,000 so far) for free or well below cost.
Kokoa Kamili supplies cocoa beans to a lot of well-respected chocolate makers here in the US, including Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco and Raaka in NYC.
With this spice, they've gone one step further and turned the cocoa beans into nibs. Rather than relying on someone else to take this step, they're creating an opportunity to bring more money back to their member farmers.

This order was a gift to a friend. I was very pleased with the service; the spices were beautifully packaged and presented, and were sent (to me) very quickly. The recipient liked the spices - they are some of her favorites - and also the box, which will not go unused. It's sturdy and good for organizing. Overall, we were both pleased, and I plan to order more from your site.
The spices were a Christmas gift for other people and they haven't had a chance to use them yet!
So yummy! I've used in granola, on yogurt, and on banana. Such a rich flavor--a nice hint of chocolate without being too sweet.
Love the crunch of these nibs sprinkled on a bowl of vanilla yogurt with banana slices. Delicious!
