100% pure organic, single-origin, Peruvian ceremonial cacao paste. New Zealand-Peruvian owned and operated family business.


Made only from virgin crop, meaning the first crop of the tree and the finest hand-selected agroforestry, shade-grown cacao pods. Our ceremonial Criollo cacao has an incredible ratio of 29:1 - theobromine:caffeine. Perfect for the uplifting, heart opening effects without the negative side-effects of caffeine over-stimulation.


Our ceremonial cacao is fermented and full bean, generated from milling the whole bean into a creamy, rich paste following ancient traditions. It contains all the antioxidants and bioactives of the whole bean, with beautiful rich aromatic oils to make a therapeutic, creamy elixir once mixed into hot water. Tested and shown to contain the highest levels of theobromine (uplifting), ethanolamines (bliss), tryptophan (joy), tryptamine (awakening), phenylethylamine (satisfaction), polyphenols (clarity), magnesium (stress), zinc (immune) and other essential minerals. The most therapeutic quality cacao you can find, ideal for ceremonial use and health benefits.


We provide the highest quality, pure ceremonial cacao so you can feel the love too! We personally source our beans from Peru (see our farm here) to find the most potent, therapeutic & flavour rich cacao possible. Learn more about us and our ceremonial cacao here.


Every batch is tested and shown to be safe from heavy metals and cadmium. We go beyond fair trade and work exclusively with one family farm that uses sustainable natural agroforestry practices (see here). Our cacao is artisinally grown, fermented and dried (<50 deg), while maintaining neutral acidity to provide the best aroma and taste.

Connect with our cacao and let it open your heart and heal your body.

The product is great, high quality, great taste, really enjoy it! Having a pre-shaved 1kg option would also be great as sometimes it’s hard to know how much to cut off but that is jus a convenience thing.
