When organic raw cacao beans arrive at Santosha Chocolate, they are hand-sorted, dehydrated at 115 degrees Fahrenheit, and winnowed to remove the bitter hulls. We then stone-grind the raw organic cacao for 48 hours at low speeds and temperature (below 115 degrees). This rigorous process ensures that our raw chocolate has abundant rich, complex and pleasurable flavors, and has superior nutritional properties. After stone-grinding the raw cacao, we add the herbs, fruits and/or spices, properly temper the raw chocolate, carefully pour it in molds, and wrap each Santosha chocolate bar by hand.
