Yin Blend - Cacao Paste with Vanilla
Deliciously creamy, smooth and comforting. Mamamuti’s best seller! What makes it exceptionally irresistible? So much love, attention, time and care has been poured into this cacao. You will taste this in the richness of it’s flavour! Notes of chocolate brownie, vanilla and toffee. Makes you feel held, comforted, restored and nurtured.
This bespoke blend is made slowly and lovingly, in small batches to bring out the delicate flavours of the cacao and vanilla. It is not tempered to standardise the appearance like in modern industrial chocolate. The characteristics of authentic cacao paste is crumbly and marbled. However, once melted the cacao returns to being soft and velvety. The overall tasting notes are consistent, but every batch has unique nuances, reflecting the season and the wisdom of nature. Our packaging is fully compostable to minimise waste.
The beans are picked and fermented for 7 days. Then sun dried and gently roasted over a low heat, cracked and winnowed. This is all done in micro batches and by hand. Then the nibs are stone ground for over 24 hours and allowed to set as a paste, untempered. With the help of The Cacao Ambassador the paste is then transformed into something so smooth and velvety, that it will make you go ‘mmmm’ and ‘ahhhh’.
Here’s why… We add extra cacao butter and whole vanilla pods to the paste to create the Yin Blend. The added cacao butter makes it oh so creamy and increases the anti oxidant, fatty acid and mineral content. The pure vanilla turns on the comfort level! Vanilla has calming and neuroprotective effects, reduces startle reflexes and curbs sugar cravings. Making this blend is a slow and mindful process and can’t be rushed. The result is a deliciously comforting, nourishing and gentle full body and heart experience. All things beautifully feminine and nurturing. And did we mention extra extra extra creamy??
