What makes it so special?

Zuma Organic is a rich blend made with 40% cocoa. The cocoa is sourced from the El Ceibo co-operative in Bolivia, and is naturally processed which means it is non-alkalized – this gives it a complex, malty flavour and a reddish colour. The El Ceibo co-operative grow the cocoa locally and process it on-site, and they are committed to protecting the local rainforest, becoming the first certified organic cocoa co-operative in the world in 1988. All the cocoa is grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilisers, and EL Ceibo farmers share their knowledge from farmer to farmer to increase productivity and improve quality.

The manufacturer is very proud of this chocolate and states the following: When looking to source our organic hot chocolate we ensure the cocoa is not only grown by the co-operative, but processed at origin too, meaning more profit stays in the country. We are so happy to work with El Ceibo who are committed to protecting their native rainforest and became the first certified organic cocoa cooperative in the world in 1988. El Ceibo work to protect against the degradation of their lands using natural and organic methods and today grow an estimated 70% of the total organic cocoa cultivated in Bolivia. They are also the first to have processed their own cocoa into powder form. All the cocoa is grown without using chemical pesticides or fertilisers. El Ceibo farmers share their knowledge from farmer to farmer to increase productivity and improve quality, much in the same way we share our knowledge with our own customers. The new Bolivian cocoa is available as a rich 40% blend organic hot chocolate, and also a 100% cocoa, should you wish to create your own house blend. The 100% cocoa can also be used to bake organic cakes and biscuits. 

It has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and is registered for vegetarians and vegans by the Vegan Society.

How to make the perfect hot chocolate

To make a 12oz drink, use a 28g scoop of hot chocolate and mix with a splash of hot water to form a smooth paste. Add steamed milk, stir and serve. For the ultimate hot chocolate, try topping with whipped cream, marshmallows or a drizzle of chocolate sauce!
