We start with rare, wild, hand-harvested South American cacao beans from a single small region at high elevation with rich volcanic soil. High elevations reduce the amount of mold in the environment. The trees are watered with pollution-free mountain stream water. We selected a heritage cacao species in the Arriba family from decades-old trees, some as old as 75 years. At no time do we use aggregators or wholesalers so there is no chance of low-quality hybrid species of cacao entering our supply chain. Experienced craftsmen harvest the ripe cacao pods and bring them to the nearby, dedicated processing facility.
Unfermented cacao is not edible, so the cacao in Bulletproof Chocolate Powder undergoes a short fermentation process. Our high-altitude, state of the art closed facility and single-source beans allow a short fermentation process with far less exposure to the types of toxic mold found in more humid African chocolate processing methods. We maintain the delicate flavors and oils by quickly sun-drying the still-raw beans in mountain air. Then we grind the beans into a fine powder on custom artisan equipment dedicated exclusively to our chocolate. The beans are 100% organic, wild, kosher, vegan, and exceed fair trade standards.
Bulletproof chocolate products are processed without using alkalization, spray/gas drying, or harsh solvents. Harsh processing can decrease the beneficial compounds in chocolate by 86-89%.
By gently harvesting the pods, keeping them raw, and using artisan equipment to crush the beans, Bulletproof Chocolate Powder retains the antioxidant quality of chocolate all the way from the wilderness to your mouth.
The quality and flavor of chocolate is impacted by the fermentation and processing methods. Normally, there is very little control over what bacteria ferment the cocoa, which often produces unwanted flavors and bad batches.
Bulletproof Chocolate Powder avoids this problem by using a dedicated, closed, single-source facility at high altitude in South America with a short fermentation process. There are simply fewer opportunities for the bad molds to enter the process. We store the beans in a climate-controlled facility.
