I microplane the brick and
store the fines in a sealed glass jar, then melt 3 teaspoons of the fined cacoa in milk as it is steamed for an espresso doppio longo
interestingly the lavalove cacao has an essential earthy spice and subtle aftershock warming background heat to it that is unique to the bean itself seeing as it not a blended spiced brick

I tried this again today and for some reason I think my taste buds were majorly off about it in my first impression. It's actually DELICIOUS. I think it tasted off the first time because I had some tahini before I drank it. I feel so bad for my first review! Please disregard it. And I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful ceremonial cacao, too! Thank you for bringing us this medicine. 🙏
I really don't like the flavor, unfortunately! We always drink the HEART OF THE EARTH (RUK'U'X ULEW) (which we LOVE) but this kind had a different flavor all together. I'm bummed but will drink it because the cacao benefits are out of this world and it's such a sacred part of my day! My partner didn't love this one either. Everyone's different, though!
This cacao is such a potent, powerful medicine. I grew up drinking cacao every single day from a family farm in the Philippines. I began working with it in ceremony back in 2017. Because of recent worldly events, I’ve been unable to source the cacao. I was excited to find out about Soul Lift Cacao and the store from here in Portland, OR. Upon the first few sips, I could already feel the quality and purity of this cacao. I’ve been able to try a few different batches and my favorite is the “Lavalove.” I am excited to share this medicine with my community and family!
Delicious- I have this every day. The flavor is unique and flowery.
