Best I’ve ever tried

I have always struggled with bitter foods and not been a fan of cacao- however this one really IS the most palliative one I’ve ever tried - it must be the good energy of the women’s touch it has passed through!

Heart of the Earth (Ruk'u'x Ulew) 100% Pure Ceremonial Cacao

CHOOSE YOUR TYPE AND AMOUNT ABOVE! NOTE: 1LB BLOCKS ARE CURRENTLY LIMITED TO 4 PER CUSTOMER, AND 1LB PRE-GROUND BAGS ARE LIMITED TO 2 PER CUSTOMER.

This Ruk’u’x Ulew (”Heart of the Earth”) cacao is grown at an indigenous family farm in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. Once harvested, the cacao is sent to Lake Atitlán, where a women’s collective carefully selects the best beans and roasts them over a wood fire. The result is a delicious artisanal cacao with a toasted, traditional chocolate flavor, hint of blackberry, and a "grandmother" spirit. *Our labels and branding are approved by the producers, and we have their consent to share the cacao for the betterment of humanity.*

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). The amount of cadmium per serving is higher than the CA Proposition 65 daily limit, and as such we must include this disclaimer for California residents:

⚠ WARNING: This product can expose you to the chemical cadmium, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.

*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 cacao. Smooth white areas are most likely the natural cacao butter. Reach out if you have any questions.

*Please allow up to 7 business days from the time you place your order until you need your cacao to arrive. Thanks for understanding that we cannot process expedited orders at this time.
