Flavor notes for this cacao include. Tobacco, Earth, smokey, and fermented berries.

This cacao is quite bitter and beautifully intense. We feel the energy rising more into the higher centers.

 

From the maker:

Guatemalan Cacao and Mayan Ceremonial Cacao have processed Cacao pods from one of three varieties grown in Guatemala. Cocoa beans of the Criollo variety are rarer and considered a delicacy and the variety mostly used in the preparation of Mayan Ceremonial Cacao.

What exactly is Ceremonial Cacao, the Cacao pod split open and the seedpods placed in fermentation boxes, after a week of turning and draining the juice you have a raw Cacao seed.

 

Mayan Ceremonial Cacao is a drink made by shaving the block of chocolate to produce a powder added to hot water. Mayan Ceremonial Cacao is hot chocolate nothing more nothing less. Cacao ignored in the ’60’s resurgence of medicine plants because it does not act like a psychedelic – it does not take you on its trip. Cacao no matter the variety or process has Caffeine and we all understand the effect of Caffeine.

Raw Cacao Beans have the greatest health benefits as a Superfood for the Brain and Heart. Raw cacao powder is a natural superfood, which is high in nutrients such as iron, magnesium, and zinc. It is also a rich source of antioxidants for our heart and contains neurotransmitters, which contribute to wellbeing and happiness.

Cacao Beans as currency Mayans and Aztecs believed cacao was given to them by their gods. Mayans enjoyed the caffeinated kick of hot or cold, spiced chocolate beverages in ornate containers, but they also used cacao beans as currency to buy food and other goods.

Today Ceremonial Cacao is no more than a marketing fad; Shamans fake or otherwise make outrageous claims of the mental and spiritual benefits of the special Cacao they sell or offering spiritual events of drinking the Cacao they market. Foolish followers who purchase this special Cacao are drinking hot chocolate you have paid a huge price.
