Cocoa Husks – Bulk ‘B’ Grade. These are the thin outer shells (or husks) of cacao beans, roasted – great for home brewing experiments, tea concoctions & beauty products. Packaged in 750g rough bulk bags (‘B’ Grade). Email us for larger quantities!
Our ‘B Grade’ husk contains smaller and finer pieces of husk than the husk we grade for Cocoa Husk Tea. This is a bulk, lightly processed ingredient and will contain some cocoa nibs, cocoa husk ‘dust’ (very fine husk) and may contain some small hessian fibers.
Exploding Tree HQ is run by head chocolate maker Allison Roberts and is located around the back of our own home in beautiful Clonakilty, West Cork (Ireland). All of our chocolate is made in-house from-the-bean by roasting, winnowing and grinding Fairtrade organic cacao. Our favourite sweetener is coconut sugar, we use it because it is better for your body & the planet (low GI & UN declared it the world’s most sustainable sweetener) and we love its caramel flavour.
Small Business Big Heart
We believe that small is beautiful and that small(er) businesses (and bicycles!) are the answer to so many problems. Rooted in community, we are able to adapt quickly to change and can manage and minimise waste much more effectively than big business (and we don’t need to fly to meetings!). All of our packaging is biodegradable or compostable & we love to reduce packaging waste further by refilling your bags here are the HQ or through bulk and minimally wrapped products via our web shop.
We love to meet our customers, to give workshops and talks. Visits are by prior arrangement only, drop us a line if you are in the neighbourhood!
