The cacao we use for our unsweetened ceremonial cacao is organically grown using biodynamic, regenerative agriculture practices in the heart of the Ecuadorian amazon. This cacao is grown in full harmony with the earth, in small agroforestry plots that include other fruit, nut, and hardwood trees & shrubs. The genetics of the beans we use to craft this variety of ceremonial cacao are predominantly Arriba Nacional, an older heirloom strain of cacao that is smooth, nutty, and floral. This particular varietal is dense in the uplifting & mood-enhancing compounds naturally found in cacao.
A recipe for preparing ceremonial drinking chocolate is included on each bag. Please understand that this is 100% cacao delivered in broken up pieces to facilitate blending it into a luscious frothy beverage. This is not a highly processed powder, and not sweetened in any way.
