Handmade Cacao Jewelry
Handmade by a women's collective at the Jesus Maria cacao Plantation in Tabasco, Mexico where we source our beans for our chocolate-making adventures.
Each cacao bean necklace is painstakingly strung bean-by-bean using Trinitario cacao beans that have been washed and dried by sun to give each bean a clean brown look
Wear it with Chocolate, Love, and Honor. Great for Cacao Ceremonies!
Storage: It is a living thing so please store properly or dry in sun periodically to allow the UV rays to sanitize it.
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.
