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.
King of chocolate nibs.
Great Chocolate Nibs...
Love the Roasted Cacao Nibs
The Roasted Cacao are delicious.I know there are getting discontinued but I hope you eventually bring them back. Thank you for all you do to provide people like with the best of the best. I have yet to be even remotely disappointed with from or about Burlap and Barrel. You all rock and so do your spices.
Complex delicious flavor!
I absolutely enjoyed these cacao nibs. Although they are roasted, they still keep an acidic, slightly fermented flavor, which pairs so well with the dark bitterness of the cacao. The flavor is so complex, that it goes well with both sweet and savory recipes. The nibs are crunchy, so they're perfect for snacking.
I am obsessed with your spices --
Your spices are a game-changer in all my recipes! Can't getter enough of your Royal Cinnamon and Silk Chili among many others. Thank you for your commitment to sourcing the very best!
