Raw and organically grown Ceremonial Cacao is 100% pure cacao solids that has been used as a powerful drink for 1000s of years going right back to the Olmecs, Mayans and Aztecs of Meso America.

 

Our Criollo Cacao is sourced from small, family run farms of The Asháninka Tribes and farming communities located in Satipo in the central rainforest of Peru.

 

The Criollo bean used in this ceremonial paste is known as the finest bean for ceremonial cacao first because of its great historical and spiritual lineage and also because the Theobromine is high and the beans are known for their high nutritional content and wonderful taste and aroma.

They are the rarest and most sought-after bean only equating to 3% of the global cacao bean growth.

 

Theobromine is a caffeine like molecule which boosts your energy levels but the beautiful thing is theobromine affects your cardiovascular system and not your nervous system so there are no peaks and comedowns, nice natural sustained energy for around 7 hours.

 

Not only that, cacao is packed with nutrients with high levels of potassium, magnesium and iron. It also boosts serotonin by giving your body anandamide which is also known as the bliss molecule!

 

HOW SHALL I USE IT?

Use ceremonial cacao in your everyday life for energy and nourishment:

For daily consumption in the form of beverages for high long-lasting energy.

For cacao ceremonies (in doses of approximately 42 grams per person)

For meditation, yoga and other heart centred activities.

A high-calorie snack during hiking, walking and expeditions.

Chopped up and sprinkled on food such as muesli.

For tasty desserts or energy balls.

A natural and nutrient dense pre workout energiser shot.

 

HOW DOES IT TASTE?

This ceremonial cacao is full fat and has a wonderful, heavenly and prominent flavour profile.

It has a deep, rich and intense bitter chocolate flavour with hints of nuttiness along with citrusy floral notes. The texture is silky and smooth (40 macrons / Fine) making it a delightful addition to any recipe. As a drink it is heavenly, creamy and potent and has a nurturing and wholesome energy.

 

How shall I prepare my drink?

To prepare your Cacao in drink form, first cut the cacao into finely chopped small pieces. The size of the chopped-up cacao should be small pieces that are approximately one quarter of an inch. It can also be smaller than this but shouldn’t be bigger than this.

Once the cacao is chopped up, you can now add hot water to it and then use a whisk or preferably and hand blitzer to emulsify the cacao and water together to form a silky and bubbly liquid. Please note the water “should not” be boiling because the cacao could lose some of its nutrients. It needs to be approximately 60° C.

You can experiment with the cacao to see how much water you would like to add. If you would like it to be thicker, you wouldn’t add as much water.
