**NEW SOURCING** We are super stoked to offer you our newly sourced organic Ecuadorian Cacao Paste!

Our cacao paste is made from the highly prized fine flavour Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional criollo cacao bean. Our paste is always certified organic, fermented, non-hybrid and now lightly-roasted to bring out the deep, powerful, chocolate flavour characterized by a blend of earthy nutty notes. 

The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection. The skins are removed from the cacao bean prior to grinding then ground into a liquid, tempered, cooled into a solid form, and kibbled for ease of use. Our cacao is clean and pure, and does not go through a “Dutch” process nor alkalized in any way. Giddy Yo Cacao Paste is low temperature processed from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our Ecuadorian partner harvests fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. They work directly with farmers (aka direct trade) and developed and implemented the Native Cacao Farming Initiative, which is an ongoing free education and training program for the cacao harvesters and processors. It is important to us that the Ecuadorians responsible for creating this amazing food are well taken care of, and it is also our goal to source clean, pure, nutritious cacao of the highest quality possible. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure the high standards our customers have come to expect are met or exceeded.

Food safety is of primary importance and we are happy to share with you that our Ecuadorian partner holds the following certifications; Organic, UTZ, Rainforest Alliance, Kosher, Halal, Non-GMO, FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certified, ISO 9001:2015, GMP, BRC Certified.  Further steps have been taken to ensure the cacao is non-irradiated and common allergen-free.

Ingredients: Cacao paste (aka cacao liquor).

    We've been buying Giddy Yoyo cacao paste for years, it's our morning wake up! We make our Chaga, Reishi base tea, add a few chunks of the cacao paste and a little sweetener to your own taste, a few other goods like coconut oil, maca, and you've got a nutrient dense drink!! Thanks Giddy Yoyo

  4. Pâte de cacao exceptionnelle

    Ce pâte de de cacao est tout à fait excellente et le service a été impeccable.

  5. Excellent Quality

    Posted by Andrea on 8th Mar 2016

    The cacao paste is amazing...great quality. I use it to make my own chocolate. It takes a little while to melt, since I keep it at low heat, but well worth it. The only improvement I would suggest is the bag it comes in; I purchase the 10lb bag & it's huge, so once it's open, it's hard to find a container to fit it into for easy storage, so maybe some kind of re-sealable bag or something like that? It would make a really nice difference.

  6. Very good!

    Always buy it here, because you won't find it anywhere this quality paste for the money you spend.

  7. rich & Fresh

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Feb 2016

    The cacao paste had a beautiful scent & was fresh, such as having a rich dark brown color. Thank you for sourcing quality cacao.

  8. Loving this Cacao!

  9. Purity.

    Posted by Katlin Doyle on 5th Aug 2015

    I have been using Giddy YoYo products for about 6 months now serving up creations of my heart to locals in my community and nurturing my own soul. Writing in reflection to my six month of purchasing continuously, I have never been so impressed nor transformed in so many levels. Spiritually cacao has been my teacher for years, and to have such an incredible source while outside of her natural habitat of the south, and up here in the north has really been the catalyst of my growth and blossoming in so many levels. Being able to serve this cacao up at farmers markets and through ceremony has been a movement large in my life, Giddy YoYo's constant quality of the best raw and ethically sourced cacao is the forefront of this path. Deep gratitude I offer to her cacao spirit herself, to the farmers, and strongly to the Giddy YoYo team. Bless.

  10. very very good
