As a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization we have a responsibility to give back to the communities and people involved in growing, harvesting and making our product. While paying beyond fair-trade prices has been a non negotiable since Day 1, KAKAO stands to take it further. 

We believe in reciprocity and honoring the Indigenous roots of this plant medicine and therefore encourage our entire community to contemplate their own reverence for Cacao, for the farmers who care for her, and for the Indigenous Elders who have protected the sacred use of plant medicines as a whole.As our KAKAO community has grown, so has the demand for this sacred heart-medicine. 

We are honored to be channeling this big, beautiful entity and distributing KAKAO into the hands and hearts of so many. We know how much ceremonial grade Cacao has positively impacted the lives of our loyal KAKAO community in unmeasurable ways, as it has ours. None of this would be possible without our devoted team on the ground in Peru.

We are currently raising funds to provide COVID relief for the local Peruvian farmers and communities involved in the making of KAKAO which only sources native Chuncho cacao beans from many small family owned farms.

Presently, the number one concern for the community is healthcare. Our partner Matt is currently in conversations with the community to establish what healthcare and medical supplies are of top priority. As we have more information we will continue to update you with specific details.

We invite you to be a part of KAKAO's mission; a mission in reconnecting human beings with their hearts; reminding people of their sacred connection to Mother Earth; supporting and encouraging the rise of a new consciousness here on earth; and giving back in a big way to the planet, especially the men and women that have devoted their lives to serving and protecting this sacred plant medicine.

We are beyond grateful for you and your contribution. 

The KAKAO Team (Makenzie, Michael, Aydin, Ellie, Jacqueline, Matt and Joy)

Stone Ground, Minimally Processed and Produced with Intention

Never tempered or conched. Stone ground only. Whole beans always.

NOT a block (in non-summer months)

KAKAO is not sold as a solid block, but rather as a granular product that you can easily scoop.

But rest assured, this is Ceremonial Cacao Paste that you're looking for.

If KAKAO was left in the sun, it would melt and return to its original block form, which we simply chopped in a food processor for your convenience.

In non-summer months, it will arrive to your doorstep as a granular product that you can scoop easily with a tablespoon.
