Soooo Goooood

El Cielo is like the sky, light and bright. It also has small puffs of cloud like particles that added to the feel and taste of it. We really enjoyed El Cielo and highly recommend it! Yummy!

El Cielo 100% Pure Ceremonial Cacao Paste from Guatemala

 

DUE TO SUPPLY LIMITATIONS, 1LB BLOCKS AND PRE-GROUND BAGS ARE CURRENTLY LIMITED TO 10 PER CUSTOMER.

A SOUL LIFT CACAO EXCLUSIVE! El Cielo is grown by the Utz K'aslemal collective at their land in the Alta Verapaz, central Guatemala. The dried seeds are taken to their family land in Sololá, to be roasted over wood fire and peeled by hand. This is half of what makes La Noche cacao, but this origin is quite different on its own! Profile: Pineapple aroma, notes of creamy vanilla, smooth mouthfeel, and "sky" energy. That's why it we call it El Cielo, Spanish for The Sky. Utz K'aslemal means "good living in a useful existence," and that's the intention the family puts into the cacao before they share it. This cacao has a slightly coarse grind in the traditional style. *Our labels and branding are approved by the producers, and we have their consent to share the cacao for the betterment of humanity.*

*amounts are per 1oz of cacao paste


Cacao has been considered sacred in Mesoamerica for thousands of years, long before the chocolate industry altered the original treasure. It has numerous superfood benefits, and can also deepen introspective practices like yoga and meditation.

Every purchase of this cacao supports Mayan indigenous people through ethical direct trade, and helps them preserve their spiritual traditions and values. For more info about us and our partners, visit our Sources page.

DIRECTIONS
To make a drink of ceremonial cacao, finely chop the cacao. Measure 1/4 cup ground cacao and 6-8 oz of hot water (steaming but not boiling). Mix with a blender (with caution!), handheld frother, or other agitator to fully melt the cacao. Optional: Add a dash of cayenne pepper and natural sweetener to taste. Enjoy!

Cacao can also be added to smoothies, oatmeal, ice cream, and other foods. Experiment with making your own chocolates or bliss balls!
