Really grew on me

Great for the morning

Making a glass of this goodness is a satisfying ritual for the morning routine. Feels like connection to the Earth itself. While I was drinking this outside one morning, a beautiful hummingbird swooped in to check out the aroma and it was magical. Recommended!

CLEARANCE: Parcelitas 100% Pure Ceremonial Cacao Paste from Guatemala

SUPPLY OF PARCELITAS HAS BECOME UNCERTAIN SO WE ARE DISCONTINUING IT AND SELLING OUR CURRENT STOCK AT A DISCOUNT (MAX 10LBS PER CUSTOMER).

The cacao is grown by a women's collective in San Antonio Suchítepequez, who told us this cacao work has given them independence and empowerment. After fermentation and drying, the cacao seeds are roasted over wood fire by Catarina and peeled by another women's collective in San Marcos la Laguna. Profile: light body, chocolatey, hint of stone fruit.

*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!

Product of Guatemala

Ingredients: Pure ceremonial cacao paste (Theobroma cacao)

Storage info: Keep in a cool, dry, dark place. Refrigeration not required.

Heavy metal content: This cacao was tested for heavy metals by a third-party laboratory and found to be in a safe range for lead as advised by the FDA, and for cadmium as advised by the EU Commission, in parts per million (ppm). Please also see our FAQ post on heavy metals in cacao and chocolate.


*NOTE: Packaging may differ slightly from the photos here. 

*Some melting of cacao paste may occur during shipping. This isn’t a problem in terms of the quality of the cacao, but the shape may be different than pictured. 

*Color and pattern variation is natural for pure artisanal cacao. Smooth white areas are most likely the natural cacao butter. Reach out if you have any questions.
