Handcrafted in ceremony by Mayan spiritual guides, working in accordance and balance with the energies of the Mayan Calendar; "we do a ceremony and offering while we make each batch, based on the Maya energy of that day, infusing each batch with massive vibrations of of love, compassion, service, abundance and Purpose. In our efforts to bring you the most potent and magical cacao, we use the whole bean, without separating or conching. We also do not sort the beans for the “perfect size or shape,” understanding that the flawed is beautiful, and that beauty brings deeper understanding".
Our cacao comes from small, family-owned farms in the State of Suchitepequez. The farms are part of a national reforestation program (INAB) which focuses on biodiversity, and regeneration of the rainforest's natural ecosystems. The cacao trees in that region are descendent from the first trees domesticated by the Mayas over 3000 years ago. They are known as 'grandmother' trees, since they have been growing and reproducing in that area since before the time of the Spanish invasion when the area was inhabited by the Mayan Tzutuhil and Mayan Quiché."
Add 2 generous tablespoons of Cacao for each 10oz cup of hot water or milk of your choice (also fantastic with coconut water or mixed with coffee -have fun experimenting!)
(it is only natural for some separation to occur though- So~ We suggest you passionately whisk or carefully blend to enhance the subtle flavors.
