GY cacao beans are the highly prized Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional varietal (aka cacao Arriba, or cacao Nacional). Arriba is a fine flavoured bean characterized by fruity and floral notes, and unique to Ecuador. Our raw beans are certified organic, Rainforest Alliance certified, common allergen-free, non GMO, naturally vegan and delicious!

The beans are hand-selected, fermented and dried to perfection keeping the cacao skin intact. Our cacao is lab tested, clean and pure, and does not go through a “Dutch” process nor alkalized in any way. Giddy Yo Cacao beans are naturally processed at low temps from start to finish to maximize quality and taste while maintaining nutritional integrity.

Our farmers harvest fully mature ripened pods from trees grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil. The plantation from which we source is known for their high quality low cadmium fine flavour cacao. Our supplier has 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 supplying us our unique cacao are well taken care of; we believe in people over profits. We lab test each lot of raw materials to ensure our high standards 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.

    We're not chocolate experts but we're happy with the raw beans. Toasting them and then shelling them gets you to cocoa nib stage. From there we do a quick grind and make hot chocolate or bake with it. The roasted beans have a stronger, bitterer, but more interesting flavour than the cocoa paste giddyyo sells. We like both the beans and the paste!

    Surely very good for health, but it doesn't taste like cacao at all.
