Peruvian Cacao Paste Buttons - 500g
Mamamuti cacao buttons are 100% pure and are commonly referred to as cacao paste with nothing added, or removed. The natural healthy fat (cacao butter) in the cacao remains intact, facilitating optimal absorption of key nutrients. Full fat = full nourishing power!
It is made by fermenting, sun drying and toasting the beans, removing the husk, then stone-grinding them down to create a paste. The paste is moulded and set into our easy to use cacao buttons.
No more messy shaving issues with a bulky cacao block. Our buttons are easy to measure. Effortless preparation for personal or a group.
Why is this cacao so special?
Each serve of our cacao buttons lovingly connects you directly to the farmers and communities in the cacao growing region of Central Peru. This premium cacao has a delicious, smooth, chocolate flavour and is tended to in areas where, for years, there were issues with the cocaine cartel, farmer exploitation and extreme poverty. Growing these illegal crops was the only option these cacao farmers had. Thankfully these rich, fertile lands have now been rescued and the farmers have returned to their thousand year old tradition of cultivating some of the worlds best cacao. This heart opening strain of shade-grown Central Amazonian cacao promotes biodiversity and improves soil fertility.

Been using regularly for a few years now. Always arrives beautifully in its packaging and is such a high end product compared to others I’ve tried. Love some of the other offerings Mamamuti has too but I always have these buttons in the cupboard consistently. I have found it is a lovely daily ritual that slows me down for a moment, without any cost (such as too much coffee).
I feel like the more consistent I am with regular cacao drinking the more I see the magic in the medicine it is!
Long term customer. Enjoy a rich, creamy hot chocolate on my way to work every morning
