Greetings, I am looking for a new source for powder and paste that is organic and fairly traded, not necessarily certified. I would be able to do a smaller quantity for now until a storage is built. I am micro business making bars from scratch and don't want chocolate that is already made. Any leads? I am trying to reach Pacari and already was using El Rey. Not sure who is willing to deal with a small company.

Not sure on the quantity they can provide, but I know Giddy yoyo in Orangeville, ON sells organic fair trade and raw cacao butter, paste, powder, and nibs.


Hope this helps!

Most importantly I am looking for already roasted cacao powder. I have access to all the raw I need but can't seem to source the roasted. I realize I would also prefer to deal with folks who are not certified and support them as 90% of growers cannot afford the certification.

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
