100% pure organic, single-origin, Criollo ceremonial cacao paste.
Criollo cacao trees, loosely known as “native” in Spanish, are the closest related to the original cacao trees from South America and are also considered the finest of cacao.
This variety of cacao is often used to improve the quality of chocolate and other cacao-based products, and many chocolate connoisseurs take note of the Criollo percentage in cacao-based products. While all cacao trees require particular shade and climate in order to grow, Criollo cacao trees are especially difficult to cultivate. They are more fragile than the other varieties of cacao, and easily vulnerable to pests and disease, resulting in poorer yields. The growth of Criollo cacao trees is limited to Mexico, Central America, Venezuela, and the Caribbean Islands and makes up about 3% of cacao bean production in the world.
Made only from the virgin crop, meaning the first crop of the tree and hand-selected pods.
Our ceremonial cacao is a fermented and full bean, generated from milling the whole bean into a creamy, rich paste following ancient traditions.
It contains all the antioxidants and bioactive of the whole bean, with beautiful rich aromatic oils to make a therapeutic, creamy elixir once mixed into hot water.
We provide the highest quality, pure ceremonial cacao so you can feel the love too! We personally source our beans from Peru to find the most potent, therapeutic & flavor rich cacao possible.
