Earth-friendly: To reduce waste and packaging, we have made this into a sturdy shipping box, therefore this item will ship as-is unless "Gift Wrapping" is chosen at checkout. All items in here have been carefully selected to be eco-friendly and sustainable. The pouches used for hot chocolate are made from biodegradable paper and do not have a plastic lining inside.
Please note all ceramic mugs are handmade, therefore, each mug will have its own distinct characteristic. Mugs are made in collaboration with Dudley Harris, a skilled potter from San Antonio, TX.

MINIMALLY FERMENTED >LOWER ACID >MORE ANTIOXIDANTS
Our beans are specially fermented for less than 3 days. This creates less acidity. Research has shown that less days of fermentation means more flavanols are maintained in the chocolate.
