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)

Cacao is a “Gift from the Gods” and Theobroma translates to “Food of the Gods.” Cacao is used ceremonial to give gratitude, ask for abundance and for the healing of the mind, emotions and Spiritual connection.
