Focussing on texture and form, we capture the nature of our superfine cacaos.
Offered here in a bundle of 3, 1 of each of the following:
Venezulean Certified Chuao - World's 1st PDO cacao
Peruvian Chuncho - The Origin of the species
Filipino Hierloom Malagos - the 16th HCP cacao worldwide
Each piece is unique, created using traditional burn-out casting techniques to transform these legendary cacao beans - the World's 16th HCP Heirloom cacao - into bronze to become immortalised forever. Beans have been selected by Bob and Iris as typical representations of each cacao: Malagos cacao is larger and more oblong than others, Chuncho is smaller and more concentrated, whereas in Chuao we can observe a typical 100-count with a commonly-appearing teardrop form to the cacao.
The bronze really highlights the minute natural details of each and every cacao. Unique, authentic and longlasting, we are proud to capture natural cacao in this way.

Distinctive as earrings, a keyring, necklace, bagtag, charm or treasured keepsake. Each bean ships with keyring and if you would like, a free necklace cord (faux leather) in your choice of colour - just let us know Brown or Black during checkout in the message box, or via email shortly after your order.
