Our cacao powder originates from hand picked Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao pods. The beans are hand selected, fermented in specialized huts for approx. 3-4 days, sun-dried to perfection, crushed and winnowed (the skins removed). These nibs are ground in a granite melange and naturally liquefy (cacao beans are naturally high in fat containing approx. 45-60%). The liquefied cacao mass is transferred to a mechanical press where the cacao butter is removed. The remaining mass ('cake') is ground into a fine powder and packaged for your enjoyment. Our cacao does not go through a "Dutch" process nor alkalized in any way. 

Our supplier sources fully mature ripe pods from trees grown in mineral rich volcanic soil. These trees are not irrigated from potentially contaminated rivers and streams. Our supplier works directly with the farmers (aka direct trade) and it is our goal to ensure that everyone along the supply chain is well taken care of. Happy workers = happy food= happy people. It is also our goal to provide great tasting, pure & the highest quality CACAO possible. We regularly lab test our products to ensure they meet specifications and the high standards our customers have come to expect. 

GY CACAO has a deep, powerful, raw chocolate flavour. Contrary to popular opinion, cacao contains very little caffeine. It has been clinically demonstrated that cacao does not elevate blood sugar in the same way as a food or beverage containing caffeine would. Instead, GY CACAO helps to create an overall state of bliss :). And to take it next level, our cacao is low temperature processed from start to finish!

Tidbits to note about Cacao:

  • Our CACAO may be naturally mood boosting and heart re-connecting.
  • Our CACAO may be an amazing weight loss food, natural energy enhancer and aphrodisiac.
  • Little to no caffeine naturally present.
  • CACAO may be the number one source of magnesium of any food on the planet.

Ingredients: Cacao powder (made from non roasted Ecuadorian Arriba criollo cacao beans).

    I am on a fairly strict AIP diet, but do indulge in cocoa in a daily hot chocolate. I haven’t found a better tasting cocoa!

  4. The Best Cacao Powder

    Posted by Lynne on 13th Mar 2019

    Can't get any better any place - hands down the most enjoyable cacao powder for a hot cacao that I start my morning with every day!


  5. Superfood for a super you!

    Posted by kate on 26th Apr 2018

    Reminds me of the shamanic cacao rituals, where the cacao would both energize the body and clarify the spirit, making it perfect for both a little kick whenever and a nice way to induce sweet dreams at night. Really, the mixture of the raw elements perfectly harvested and preserved, the whole way of thinking of the company and the people involved, all coming so well together. So many possibilities with this one! Can be used to do the most complex of things as well as just as it is, in cacao water. The enhenced nutritive value and quality, the ethics behid it, it's texture and flavor, as well as it's aroma. Plus, it's actually the only powder I found that my body would react to the same way as with the Mayas products :) That tells me a lot! Superfood for a super you, really!

  6. Amazing cocoa powder!

  8. Fair trade

    Posted by Keith on 22nd Mar 2017

    Did my homework before buying this product. Giddy Yoyo is one of the best rated products for fair trade. Tastes great

  9. Best Cocoa on the market!

    Posted by Cindy on 23rd Nov 2016

    Dark, rich, high oil content. There is nothing to compare with.

  10. Fantastic flavour

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Nov 2016

    I love this powder. It is so versatile, and a little can go a long way. Makes a phenomenal hot cacao. The only negative for me is the packaging, since it is a glossy plastic the zipper closure doesn't last a long time. Can I suggest a slide zipper, Giddy?
