In its pure state, chocolate, or cacao, is quite nutritious, and inspires eudaimonia. There are number of varieties of cacao. Almost all commercial chocolate is made using beans of the Forastero Group. Another more prized cultivar, Criollo, is used by the top chocolate makers around the world. It is less bitter and more aromatic than any other bean.
See our explanation of different chocolate varieties here.
You can buy criollo chocolate powder from Amazon, and you can get criollo nibs here.

I can get it for you from El Salvador in any form you like from one of the few growers of the criollo strain.I import coffee beans from the same grower and will be the acting agent for sales of this seasons cacao as well.
Above is who you need to contact.
Stephanie is the grower.
