The Mayan spirits gather together and transform raw cocoa through a traditional method; a special processing when the beans have to absorb the liquids of the fresh pulp instead of letting them drain away. A slow process with close supervision in a closed solar tunnel leads to an aromatic cocoa with intense notes of wild valley flowers and thyme, coconut/almond milk, and sesame oil.
