First things first: + non-GMO + best cacao bean variery (criollo) + organic + clearly grown in an extremely rich soil, which can be tasted + good freshness, properly sealed air-tight, light blocking packing The taste is as it should be rich, not too acidic or bitter, but both can be clearly tasted (try 100% forastero variety from another mfg to understand what a low-quality, cheap, bitter cacao bean from Africa tastes like). Why deduct one star? Because it could be even better in terms of taste. The best of the best come from very small producers like Willie's Cacoa (UK), Francois Pralus (FRA) and Amedei of Italy. Other than that, great stuff and the only cacao I buy any more from iHerb (have tried the pure varieties, and of the Arriba Nacional variety, Earth Circle and Wilderness Poets are ok).

Was pretty skeptical when buying this as there wasn't any reviews on it and couldn't find any reviews online too. Bought it anyways, and I LOVE IT! Baked a cacao chocolate cake with it and tasted even better than regular cocoa powder. It has a very deep and mysterious taste to it that adds to the chocolaty goodness. I have it with chia puddings and oatmeal and it tastes so good! Definitely a MUST BUY!
Seemingly quality cacao

I make myself a hot cacao cup with raw honey every morning and evening to wake myself up and get all the health benefits. Also, since cocoa powder and honey are known to protect your skin, it is noticed my skin has much less irritation from laser hair removal since I started drinking these. My only gripe is, package runs out too fast :)
Good rich taste
