Collection: Mandala Naturals: Raw Cacao Dark Chocolate

Made in Barnardsville, NC

Mandala Naturals: Raw Cacao Dark Chocolate's Rob Lenfestey was told he was allergic to Chocolate growing up.  This means he did not eat it until a fateful mountaineering expedition in the Wind River Mountains in Wyoming at age 20.  The team made the brownies and split them into small portions for each person.

Only a few months later Lenfestey found himself making raw superfood chocolate for a San Francisco children’s charity. And learn he did. Rob studied cacao extensively and went on to live on cacao plantations in Costa Rica and the Hawaiian Agriculture Research Center in Kauai, working with different varieties of cacao, tropical superfoods and learning how to grow them abundantly and sustainably.

After over a decade of working with cacao, superfoods, the art of chocolate making and working with innovative herbal extraction technology, Mandala Chocolate was born. Mandala works closely with indigenous growers to ensure that his cacao is coming from communities that work close to the land
