what is cacao?
It’s said that Cacao is one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the planet, and whilst we’ve got used to eating it as delicious chocolate, it’s also good to know you can enjoy it without the guilt! Cacao eaten or drunk in its natural form makes the most of the super high levels of nutrients embedded within the cacao beans. Combining it with matcha gives you the healthiest mocha alternative you’ve ever tasted – the comfort of cacao and the slow release caffeine of matcha.
