For thousands of years, ceremonial cacao has been an important part of the spiritual life of the Arhuaco indigenous people of the sacred mountain of the ‘Sierra Nevada’ in Colombia. The Arhuaco considered Cacao as a sacred plant and it is believed to have been used to strengthen their visionary abilities while building sacred sites such as the Lost City. This is the drink for special occasions; especially for ceremonies as cacao is a heart-opening and great for grounding and connecting to oneself; cacao gently nudges the heart chakra open, gifting benefits such as emotional embodiment and spiritual connection. 

Ceremonial cacao is an ancient spiritual medicine prepared from the cacao bean, the seed of the sweet fruit of the cacao tree. Our cacao is organically grown alongside other sacred plants and with pure spiritual intentions using ancestral harvesting with full respect to Mother Earth (pachamama). Ceremonial-grade cacao is made through a process of fermenting and then sun-drying or lightly toasting the beans. The beans are then de-husked and stone ground into a paste, nothing added, nothing removed. This is important as it means the beans natural fat remains aiding to balance its stimulating effects and make it easier for your body to absorb it over time.

Cacao increases energy levels and concentration, illuminates a pathway to creativity, and balances the male and female energies within the body. Cacao also improves blood flow and circulation. Lastly, drinking cacao with intention enhances and deepens daily practices like meditation, yoga, and conscious dance. 

Owing to the powerful energy of the Sierra Nevada and its people, Arhuaco cacao is already considered among the best in the world!
