What does ‘raw’ cocoa really mean as compared to ‘roasted’ cocoa?
Unroasted means that the cocoa beans maintain the living enzymes. This makes them very rich in antioxidants, preserving considerably more vitamins, enzymes, minerals and subtle nutrients such as Theobromine, which causes our brain to secrete an increased amount of Dopamine and Serotonin thereby giving us a particular feeling of happiness and contentment.
The flavour is dependent of the type of bean and there are many different varieties of cocoa beans. The beans from BIG Tree company originally stem from the Criollo beans (southern Mexico / northern Guatemala). In the 1600’s, the Spanish brought this legendary cocoa bean to the Philippines. From there, the Cocoa spread to Indonesia and Bali.
The Criollo cocoa bean is legendary because of its mild and gentle aroma, which caused it to become a favoured bean of the raw chocolate producers.
