Unlike any cocoa powder you've ever had, this raw cacao powder is made from organic cacao beans from the famous Kokoa Kamili cooperative in the Morogoro region of Tanzania. The beans are not roasted before grinding - they're fermented and sun-dried for a fruity, bright flavor. This unique, nutty flavor is great for sweets but is also particularly delicious as a savory ingredient. Use as an alternative to paprika in stews, chilis, and tomato sauces, where it adds sweetness and depth similar to caramelized onions, barbecue or soy sauce. Also makes a killer hot cocoa or a great way to give your morning coffee that extra boost you've been craving now that the days are darker.

Burlap & Barrel sources their single origin spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms, bypassing brokers and middlemen who drive prices up and quality down. Founders Ethan Frisch and Ori Zohar visit farms personally and spend time with farmers, learning firsthand about the economic, social, and cultural factors behind their farming methods. Burlap & Barrel then supports these farmers by providing purchase commitments to give greater financial security, sharing knowledge from across their global farmer network, and expanding on-site value-added activities such as sorting, grinding, and packaging to increase farmer revenue. Burlap & Barrel works with their partner farmers to identify unique varietals of spices that are often overlooked by the commodity spice industry – as well as valuable byproducts – to maximize the farms' earnings. Plus, in selling these spices, Burlap and Barrel highlights the areas they come from, bringing attention to sustainability and ecological needs and practices in other parts of the world.
Keep in a dry place away from heat and light. While spices will stay good for a long time, they don't necessarily "get better with age," so use them generously and often! Read more about Burlap & Barrel's spices HERE.
