The Cacao Nibs from Ecuador are of the Trinitario variety. They are a richer, dark brown color, and more dense than the Philippine Cacao. Their flavor is also more intense, and there is almost a faint coffee like flavor to them in addition to the light chocolate taste.
These cacao nibs come from beans raised organically without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemicals of any kind. They are also purchased as fair trade from Ecuador.
