We offer raw (and roasted) cocoa nibs to help make those first few steps onto the path of Chocolate Alchemy a little easier. Any of the Cocoa Beans we carry can be supplied to you as unroasted cocoa nibs. Just select the “as Nibs” option in the appropriate cocoa bean of choice
When your nibs arrive, you may notice that there is some husk still in with the nibs. We do our best to remove 99+% of it. Usually it is under 0.1% although certain raw nibs may be a bit higher. In either case the amount is fine for chocolate making. Husk will not affect the flavor or texture of your chocolate until well into the 2-3% range.
Finally, it has been said a few times already, but the unroasted nibs are not suitable for eating as is (check out the FAQ for more information). You will still need to roast them to use them. It is as easy as toasting nuts in the oven. 250-300 F for 15-20 minutes and you are done.
