This is 100% Pure Cacao, the real deal when it comes to cacao and her medicine.
This is the solid form of certified organic cacao, before it is further refined and separated into cacao powder and cacao butter. It has the perfect (just as nature made it) ratio of all that cacao is. Due to this purity, it creates a rich and creamy cacao, with only water needed (and a little sweetener if you want that).
What is ceremonial cacao?
Ceremonial cacao is about intention and devotion. Each component of this cacao has been a refinement over a few years. It is only now that we have a source of cacao that is of full alignment with our beliefs of living in harmony with nature. This cacao is different than what would would pick up from another store, and that is due to a few things - the source of cacao, the intention for making the product in the first place, and the intended use of the product. Cacao Keeper intends that you will prepare, and drink your cacao as a time to deepen your connection to self, others and/or nature. This is you creating ceremony for yourself.
The cacao is grown in the Tocache Region, Peru. This cacao is shade grown, and of the native strain criollo. What this means is that our cacao supports the restoration of native strains, and sustainable agricultural practices. 'Rescue Cacao' is another name for this source, as it too provides a substantial wage for families who tend to the cacao, thus keeping them from turning to monoculture farming or illegal crop farming just to make a decent wage.
Heavy metals are tested in this cacao and are below required safety specifications, including levels of cadmium.
Keep in a cool dry place.
