Ceremonial Grade Cacao
Ceremonial Cacao is a pure cacao product made from 100% cacao bean.
It is made from the highest quality single origin, organic & fair trade cacao beans, which have been traditionally and consciously prepared & processed. We lightly hand roast the traditional way over wood fire & winnow the beans which are then stone ground until the cacao bean fats are released and the product becomes a smooth cacao 'paste'.
Because of the use of high quality, organic Cacao beans, and minimal processing, Ceremonial Cacao contains a high quantity of beneficial compounds such as theobromine, proanthocyanin, anandamine, methylxanthines, tryptophan, phenylethylamine. These compounds generate a heart-warming, loving sensation, and are known to be consciousness-altering. Cacao also boosts Serotonin levels in the body.
When prepared & consumed consciously, ceremonial cacao aids in meditation, elevates mood & generates a gentle source of energy.
Preparation & Serving suggestion:
28-40 grams of ceremonial cacao paste blended with warm water or milk.
Sweeten if desired - I would recommend coconut sugar, as it does not 'spike' our blood sugar levels as other sweeteners do.
Ceremonial grade cacao is most beneficial when prepared and enjoyed consciously. Adjust cacao quantity to your personal needs - if you have not consumed pure cacao before, take it slowly :) Increase the amount as you feel suits, day to day.
Our Ceremonial Cacao comes in block form - use a grater or sharp knife to slice parts of the cacao from the block. Discolouration/layers within the cacao paste block is normal - it is the way cacao fat separates from the cacao solids. This will not alter the taste or texture or your cacao when used in a drink or when warmed.
Avoid using ceremonial cacao alongside coffee or strong sources of caffeine.
Please use a heat-safe blender if using hot liquids.
