These vibrantly coloured, magical looking fruit are actually Cacao pods, inside of which you will find the cacao beans which we use to make our superlative raw chocolate. Did you know that cacao pods were as beautiful as this? The beans inside are fermented for 5 days before becoming ready for use in our chocolate making process.
FYI We source our Cacao from a Fairtrade Cacao producer, who sources from 43 sites in Peru, supporting thousands of families throughout the country.
Soulful Sundays: We're on a mission to provide you with the most uplifting and inspiring content via our social media feed. 😀✨ So, in the coming weeks and months we will be featuring the faces and stories of some of our amazing friends. We kicked off this month featuring our friend, magical chocolate alchemist @aradhanaraw .
In our interview, we asked Aradhana about the things in her life that bring joy & happiness. Here's a little snippet of her response:
"Beauty in all things- as a libran my ruling planet is Venus which is all about Love and Beauty. I find beauty everywhere, unless I have my gloomy glasses on and even then, spying the beauty of a detail can snap me out of it. One of my favourite quotations is from William Morris who said 'Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful' - and I would add that ideally it would be both. I regularly fall in love with teaspoons or the perfection of a chocolate bar"
The complete interview is up now on our blog, link in bio ☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼 and we have one of Aradhana's @aradhanaraw magical chocolate bars, Love Supreme, 🍫❤️🍫❤️👌available to purchase in our webshop this month!! 😀

Message from Linus (RCC founder and chief choco wizard in charge): "If you've been following our stories recently you may know that I love getting up early in the morning and going for freezing cold dips...whatever the weather! This pic was taken on Brighton beach on a snowy morning after a dip in the sea at 7.30am.....It's a practice I've been immersed in for nearly a year now, on a regular basis, after discovering the extraordinary story of #wimhof the #iceman. I haven't been sick once since I started cold-dipping every morning, and find that it really brings me alive and sets me up in the best possible way for the day ahead."
We'd love to know: what are the things you do that make YOU feel most happy to be alive....and how do you make time to bring them into your life?! Post your comments below 😀😀😀😀
Ps. Just because we love to, we will send out a package of raw chocolatey happiness (125g pack of Vanoffee Mulberries) to the best comment!! (We'll decide by the end of this week)
