100% pure organic, single-origin, Peruvian ceremonial cacao paste, shaved and ready for use. New Zealand-Peruvian owned and operated family business.
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.
Made only from the virgin crop, meaning the first crop of the tree and hand-selected pods. Our ceremonial cacao is a fermented and full bean, generated from milling the whole bean into a creamy, rich paste following ancient traditions. It contains all the antioxidants and bioactive 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), ethanolamides (bliss), tryptophan (joy), tryptamine (euphoria), 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 & flavor-rich cacao possible.
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 artisanally grown, fermented and dried (<50 deg), while maintaining neutral acidity to provide the best aroma and taste.
