With notes of dried cherry and bittersweet chocolate, Morogoro cacao is amazing in sweets and also for savory dishes like stews, chilis, and tomato sauces. It’s a special ingredient that adds sweetness and depth similar to caramelized onions, barbecue, or soy sauce. What’s even better is where it comes from. Made up of around 3,000 farmers, the Kokoa Kamili cooperative is known for supplying cocoa beans to many well-respected chocolate makers in the US, including Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco and Raaka in NYC. Their cacao powder is minimally processed and unroasted; the beans are fermented using the cacao fruit sugars, and then heated gently to extract the fat (which is used to make cocoa butter).

Burlap & Barrel partners directly with small farms to source single-origin, biodynamically-grown spices.

The glass jar and metal lid are curbside recyclable, and the plastic sifter is recyclable through TerraCycle by following our special instructions.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.

How it does good

Making a positive social impact and a low environmental impact

Burlap & Barrel sources their spices directly from farmer cooperatives and small farms. They visit each of these farms, spending time with the employees to learn about the economic, social, and environmental implications of their methods. Every decision they make is fueled by their goal to end inequality and exploitation in the food industry. They do this by connecting small farms to high-value markets, educating consumers about the impact of product traceability, and sourcing unique foods that are grown using biodynamic and organic techniques.
