More about our unsweetened cacao nibs
Wilderness Poets Arriba Nacional Cacao Nibs
Our unsweetened nibs are made from the deeply flavorful, heirloom variety, Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional cacao beans. The interesting thing is our Cacao doesn't come from farms or farmers. It is wild, heirloom cacao.
- Grown in high–elevation highly mineralized volcanic soil.
- Watered by rain or deep mountain spring water, the trees are never irrigated by potentially contaminated rivers and streams.
- Wild harvested and brought down on donkeys.
- Mature, ripe cacao pods are harvested from trees that are between 30 and 80 years old.
- The cacao pods are hand selected for quality beans, which are sundried (never gas dried) then lightly fermented to bring out the rich, aromatic flavor.
- Wilderness Poets Cacao Powder, Paste and Unsweetened Nibs are 100% Arriba. The pods are hand selected and never acquired from aggregators thus no possible cross–contamination. (Our Coconut Sweetened Cacao nibs come from Peru).
Why We Love Cacao

Cacao is a good source of sulfur, generating healthy skin, nails and hair. Cacao contains one of the highest levels of antioxidants on the planet, exceeding that of red wine, green tea and many other exotic fruits and vegetables.
