Cacao is the original form of chocolate!
But most chocolate products are processed and diluted to a point that the original benefits of cacao are no longer present.
Not only does pure cacao contain a high amount of antioxidants plus magnesium, iron, and other minerals. It also features theobromine, a mildly stimulating compound different than caffeine because sensation is less jittery and it doesn't lead to crash or cravings. Contrary to popular belief, Guatemalan cacao actually contains very little caffeine.
You’ll love the elevated mood, focus, and motivation that this amazing coffee alternative offers.
For thousands of years the indigenous cultures of Latin America have also regarded cacao as sacred and a way to connect with the divine. The influx of Europeans led to different production methods including roasting at high heat and removing the healthy cacao butter.
Now pure, unprocessed cacao is re-entering the world stage at a time when we need it the most.

Soul Lift Cacao is proud to present truly artisanal cacao in all its original greatness, to help the world while also taking care of the planet and giving back to indigenous people who have kept cacao traditions alive.
We are a DIRECT TRADE cacao business, since we have direct relationships with the Mayan collectives who prepare the cacao.
We offer more transparency about our sourcing, personally check on the quality of farming and preparation systems, and ensure that standards of worker compensation and care are higher than cacao industry averages.
Our sources prepare cacao with minimal processing, selecting beans by hand and lightly roasting them over a wood fire. This ancient, traditional method impacts the flavor and the sensation of the cacao, giving you an unforgettable aesthetic experience.
What’s more – because this cacao is prepared at the place of origin, more money from your purchase goes back to the people preparing the cacao in Guatemala.
This is even an improvement on so-called "bean-to-bar" (or small disc) chocolate models, sending 5-15 times the amount of money to the source.
So by enjoying our products, you’re literally giving back to people who need it.
We’re proud to say that every purchase from Soul Lift Cacao directly supports Mayan indigenous people through this type of ethical direct trade. Thank you for supporting this model!
