1LB of organic RAW Cacao from Ruk’u’x Ulew (”Heart of the Earth”).
Ruk'u'x Ulew (Heart of the Earth) is a small Mayan women´s collective in Guatemala. "Our organic cacao is grown on an indigenous farm in Coban, Alta Verapaz and then transported to San Marcos La Laguna. Each bean is carefully selected to ensure only the highest quality remain and then sun-dried. Our local Kaqchikel family of women gather to roast the beans over a wood fire, giving it a unique robust flavour. We sit together for hours to peel the beans and put love and high energy into them" PROCEEDS SUPPORT LOCAL FARM AND LOCAL PRODUCERS! Ingredients: Pure organic Cacao paste (Theobroma cacao)
Make your own drinking Cacao
How to make a Cacao drink with this pure block of Cacao goodness: Shave the Cacao block with a knife while heating up water. Fine chop a bit extra for easier melting. Add the chopped Cacao to melt in the hot (warm but not boiling hot!) water. Blend together using a spoon, milk frother or blender (gently and with caution). Optional: add your own spices and sweetner. For example some Cayenne pepper or cinnamon. If sweetener, try organic stevia, panela or honey. Maybe a bit of coconut oil. Raw Cacao can also be added to smoothies, breakfast bowls, oatmeal, chocolate bliss balls, desserts and more. (can also be added to your Junajpu to have a more bitter taste and stronger raw Cacao taste).
