WHAT IS CEREMONIAL CACAO
Ceremonial cacao is a high-quality, consciously crafted cacao with respect for all aspects of the craft.
From the tree and the environment to the farmers and the whole chocolate production process.
It is also known as ceremonial cacao paste. It is a very pure product with nothing added or removed.
It is fermented, sun-dried, toasted and stone-ground cacao which contains cacao butter. These healthy fats help absorb the nutrients so you can have the most optimal experience.
Ceremonial cacao can be used as a mindful daily drink, for your ceremony, as a substitute for coffee or blended in your superfood shake.
It is made to support you in all your daily and creative activities, as cacao has many positive health benefits on body, mind and spirit.
"Every production is a ceremony in itself. Crafting this cacao needs my full presence and focus throughout the whole process."
FAIR AND FINE FLAVOR FARMING
The cooperation from which we buy from in the Dominican Republic is known for its’ high-quality 'fine flavor cacao' and well supported farmers. They are paid four times the market price and receive technical training, the possibility of loans for cacao and community needs.
This makes them able to earn a sustainable income for themselves and their families.
The cacao beans are hand-selected and they do a fantastic job at fermenting. this gives the cacao the rich, full taste bud experience.
We also love that the biodiversity of the lands is high with cassava and avocado trees which have an influence on the taste as well.
