Oh my gosh

This butter is delicious. Just got it 13 days ago and have already ordered more. (Bigger jar this time.)
Having to save the little I have left for one more day. Love finding the raisins. I am glad I found this stuff and have already bought some for a friend.

Love it

I love Gateway blended into my decaf coffee in the morning. Tastes great and I love The antioxidant boost.

amazing product, maybe cut the servings

I want to start off by saying thank you to the Mayan indeginious people for this gift. I started with the recommended 1/4 cup & I think it was too much for a first timer. I enjoyed the process & taste, but I got sick from it. I don't blame the product as everyone is different and I also read this is a side affect from the liver cleansing. Cacao is a heart opener and I definitely felt that. I cut the dose in half and almost got sick but I didn't. I will take it easy and enjoy in small doses to build my tolerance! I appreciate the eco friendly packaging.

Love this Cacao

The flavor, the texture, it’s so smooth :)

Chocolatey Goodness

I have tried many of the different cacao flavors from Soul Lift. In comparison to the others, this one tastes the most "traditionally" chocolate, like a regular cup of hot chocolate. It does have a slight malty or caramel note as stated in the description, nothing overwhelming. I enjoyed it.

Cacao, meditation & new friends!

I really enjoyed the cacao circle that Nick guided. I will be back for future circles for sure! It is a really nice way to slow down and savor the cacao while being intentional about why you are consuming it. I also enjoyed being in quiet community with the other people there and participating in the meditative vocalization practice (humming).


I have been fortunate to experience both private and public cacao gatherings with Soul Lift, and every gathering I feel my walls come down. Both Nick and Sandee facilitated such welcoming and intimate gatherings, where they personally visited the communities that prepared the cacao I consumed, as well as visited the cacao plants themselves. I can honestly share that there's no other café quite like Soul Lift. It has a way of attracting new experiences, new friends, and new daily rituals.


Really enjoy the taste and smooth elevated energy this Cacao paste gives me! Honored to partake in this sacred tradition

Great Offering

The nutty taste is prominent in my batch and very welcomed by my palate. This may be my primary selection going forward. Like the other offerings, I find they have a distinct effect of lightening my heart and helping me to enter a more sensitive state. I make mine with 6oz oat milk, a dash of cayenne, maple syrup, and some prayers. For anyone wondering the difference between this and store bought hot chocolate, I encourage you to try it, and consider not just the surface flavors, but also the effects on your mind and body.

Ritual 70% Dark MILD Drinking Chocolate Mix

Pretty awesome

It was perfect. All you have to do is put it in some hot coconut milk and mmm, feel the sensations in your body.

Solid meditation circle

Really enjoyed this circle, it was the perfect size, and the guided meditation exercises accompanied by hot cacao felt very relaxing and deepening in a gentle way. I appreciated that this was mostly experiental and only slightly talkative/group sharing at the end, allowing me to use this as an opportunity to check in with myself in a nice container and beautiful cafe space.

Ceremonial Cacao Drink
Patricia Reilly
Not our mothers’ (or fathers’) hot chocolate

A friend invited me to Soul Lift for chocolate. Hot or iced chocolate is not my drink of choice: too creamy, too sweet, too reminiscent of floating marshmallows. But the Guatemalan ceremonial chocolate at Soul Lift was a breakthrough for me. For the first time I experienced high quality, expertly prepared chocolate as the aromatic, rich, simple and delicious beverage it can be. I tried one cup; I came back to the cafe a second time to try the “flight” of 5 different kinds of ceremonial chocolate; I’m planning to go back as many times as I can to try every chocolate Soul Lift offers. When I asked my friend to describe how she felt at the end of her cup of chocolate, she said one word, “Euphoria”. Have to agree!


Genuine cherry flavor, not like artificial cherry. Decent level of sweetness. I like to make it with two tablespoons cherry cacao and one tablespoon unsweet cacao, to reduce sweetness and make it a little richer. Drinking cacao helps give me some spirit when I feel down.


I like this stuff a lot. I will definitely purchase more when needed.

Ceremonial Cacao Drink

All I could hope for

There is something divine about the cacao drink made with ceremonial cacao. Lounging and drinking it with a friend left us both elated and calm.


Smooth consistency and delicious! Perfect for my daily use and ceremonial.

Love it!

It’s absolutely delicious. So happy with soul lift cacao.

I love it!

I love the taste, It is beautiful.

Love the compostable packets!

The compostable packets are amazing for individual use, and are absolutely delicious! I even had to take one home and try it out before we put it on the shelf! We feel that these will best suit our customers! Thanks so much!

New Fan

I recently replaced my morning coffee ritual with cacao. It feels like me energy comes more naturally now and I am absolutely loving this drink. I drink mine with a dash of cayenne pepper, cinnamon and monk fruit then I froth it and top it with a little bit of frothed oat milk. It’s heavenly.

Fast shipping, amazing quality

My wife and I drink this every morning. It has helped her with her heart palpitations.

Obsessed! Best cacao ever.

I recently gave up coffee, and needed a healthy alternative morning beverage. I've tried a couple of the popular "coffee alternatives" on the market, and nothing was really doing it for me. I'm so thankful I found Soul Lift ! This cacao is absolutely DELICIOUS! I have bough pre-ground cacao from my local grocery before, and it was extremely bitter and not enjoyable to drink. Soul Lift's cacao is so smooth, not bitter and so comforting to drink. Highly recommend!

Chocolate Nerd

I love dark chocolate, the darker the better. I cut up the block and keep it in a mason jar. I drink this with no sugar, just chocolate and water. It has the same dark earthiness as my coffee. I drink this now in the afternoon when I’m craving that dark rich taste of black coffee. I can’t wait to try them all!

Absolutely perfect!

This is my first time purchasing my own cacao. I did a lot of research and Soul Lift kept coming back to the top of the list, and I am so glad they did! The Ruk'u'x Ulew is amazing. The gentle and clean energy boost, the smooth manner of increasing my vibration and lowering my walls. Yesterday I sat outside with my Cacao, my dogs, and nature. It was the perfect start to a beautiful Sunday.


Cacao and spice and everything nice. Well done!
