Cacao

Ceremonial cacao is 100% pure cacao made from organic whole cacao beans that are then carefully roasted at low temperatures, peeled, and stone-ground until it forms a paste. It is the highest quality and source of cacao beans prepared with intentions for healing and spiritual purposes.

 

 

Our Cacao Beans

Our cacao is made with the "Arriba" Nacional fine aroma cocoa bean, a very high-quality cocoa bean. We carefully source our cacao beans from suppliers that bring us organically, fair-trade cacao products that have been minimally processed, making sure the natural health benefits of cacao are maintained until it reaches your hands. 

 

We carefully choose suppliers that work directly with small farms and coops, ensuring the products promote sustainability and inclusive businesses with farmers and their communities.

The cacao paste is then blessed and specially prepared with intentions of healing and spiritual purposes.

History

The first evidence of cacao uses dates from approximately 5,300 years ago by the Mayo-Chinchipe civilization in Ecuador. Traces of theobromine (a chemical compound in cacao) have been found in their pottery, suggesting cacao was first used in a drink.

From its origins in South America cacao travelled to Southern Mexico where it was used first by the pre-Olmec peoples, then the Olmecs, the Mayans and the Aztecs.

Evidence from pre-Olmec (4000 BC – 1500BC) and Olmec (1500 BC to 400 BC) pottery suggests these civilizations used cacao in a drink, and primarily for religious purposes. It isn’t until the rise of the Mayan civilization (around 2000 BC), which did have a written history, that more is known about how cacao was prepared and used.

Cacao was an integral part of their both Maya and Aztec culture and was used not only in religious ceremonies but also as a status symbol and as currency.

Both cultures believed the cacao bean had magical, or even divine, properties, suitable for use in the most sacred rituals.

Ceremonial Grade Cacao is made from high-quality cacao beans. These beans have a higher concentration of health-restoring compounds such as theobromine, serotonin, proanthocyanin, anandamide, methylxanthines, tryptophan, phenylethylamine and many others that when consumed generate a particular heart-warming sensation in the body.

 

Hence it is known in the plant medicine world as the heart opener.

This “heart-opening” is what brings about the uniquely expansive, peaceful, open, and elevated physical and mental states that cacao ceremonies revolve around.
