Roasted Cacao Nibs - Organic - 200 GM


Cacao nibs are small pieces of crushed cacao beans — or cocoa beans — that have a bitter, chocolatey flavor.
They’re produced from beans derived from the Theobroma cacao tree, also known as the cocoa tree. Cocoa beans are dried after harvesting, then fermented and cracked to produce small, dark bits — or cacao nibs.
Some cacao nibs are roasted while others are not.These rich, chocolatey nibs are loaded with nutrients and powerful plant compounds that have been shown to benefit health in many ways.

Though small in size, cacao nibs are packed with an impressive amount of nutrients.
They’re amongst the least processed cocoa products on the market and substantially lower in sugar than other chocolate products, making them a healthier alternative for chocolate lovers.

We at Varanashi farms have been pioneers in cultivating Cacao, often called the food of the Gods. Varanashi Cacao comes from heritage trees some of which are over 40 years old. The Cacao forest shares its space with arecanut, black pepper, nutmeg, bananas and coconut trees giving the cacao bean its distinct flavour and colour. Trinitario and Forestro varieties are grown on the farm.

Our Cacao is grown sustainably - happy people and a happy environment make happy cacao. Varanashi cacao nibs lend themselves best for Artisan and craft chocolates.
The unique soil, topographical and weather conditions here give our beans and chocolate their unique fruity and zesty flavour Cacao has a robust flavour profile with fruitiness, hints of raisin, subtle umami and tobacco notes.
The terrain and the micro climate created by the integrated forest farming contribute greatly to its unique taste. The robust flavoured cacao is zesty and fruity with notes of raisin and tobacco balancing each other to create a subtle Umami.

About Varanashi Farms
The illustrious story of Varanashi Organic Farms, handed down by over six generations of the Varanashi family, begins more than 200 years ago, when in 1816 King Lingaraju, Ruler of Kodagu, gifts a large piece of land and a big house in the Moodambailu area to one of his favourites, a wiseman by the name of Jyothishi.

Thirumaleshwari Amma, one of the female members of this family, marries Varanashi Krishnayya and settles at Moodambailu. Their son Varanashi Subraya Bhat and grandson Varanashi Krishna Moorthy manage the property in subsequent years and name it Varanashi Farms.

Varanashi Surbraya Bhat was a pioneer in setting up Cacao plantations in south India and also went on to set up CAMPCO Ltd. – today, one among the co-operative giants in India and was President of CAMPCO from 1972 to 1990. His son Dr. Varanashi Krishna Moorthy has set up research facilities for the improvement of agriculture and allied fields through research, education and outreach with special emphasis on the promotion of eco-friendly and sustainable technologies.

Partha Varanashi is youngest heir in this family to take the family tradition forward. A coach for Team India in the 2019 Aquatic World Championships, he champions movement sports and aquatic education at the farm.
