This is PURE Cacao with no other ingredients. If you are looking for our signature KAKAO Blend, click here.
Pure ceremonial-grade cacao is naturally bitter and therefore can be mixed with sweetener & additions of choice. See recipe below or our Preparation page and enjoy this powerful, heart opening medicine.
KAKAO is a ceremonial-grade (the highest quality) drinking chocolate made from whole cacao beans. Our cacao is sourced from Peru in the native strain called 'Chuncho' via direct trade.
A large part of KAKAO's non-profit mission is to help protect the native strains of cacao and the communities which cultivate them.
Organic Ingredients From Wild Family-Owned Farms:
- Cacao beans
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.

* L E G A C Y *
What we pass on for others to benefit from.
What lives on for future generations.
When we invest our time and energy into something bigger than ourselves, bigger than our immediate survival needs.
When we intentionally create something of value for our family, our community, and society at large to receive the blessings of.
In everything we do, let’s ask what legacy we are leaving. What legacy are we creating.
After years of cringing at the word Legacy (for my own reasons), I hereby claim that word back with this KAKAO Blessing. I am approaching my creative ventures with the intention of Legacy at the forefront. Same goes for how I interact with others, the presence I bring to each room, and what M and I nurture inside of our sacred union.
It’s important to get present to the legacy we have already left - who have we impacted on our journey thus far? Honor yourself for this, for who you have been up until now. And looking forward, what legacy do you want to leave? Not so much how you want people to remember you, but moreso what energies and blessings do you want to leave behind in this world - whether you get recognized or not.
Aloha. To your Legacy.
LEGACY Edition Available on all orders placed May 17th - July 31st, including all pre-orders taken on the USA and Canada websites.
Due to our product being a food item, all sales are final and non refundable. We encourage customers to taste and work with KAKAO intimately before ordering a bulk bag. Please note that we source our cacao from wild farms and the taste may change from time to time. Please allow for a small adjustment period, especially if you’ve been working with other types of cacao recently. The taste and aroma of cacao changes drastically across the board depending on the type of bean and harvesting methods used. KAKAO is committed to sourcing directly from small wild farms and honoring the origins of this sacred gift from Mother Earth.
Thank you for your support of KAKAO and the joint mission of restoring heart-openness in the world.
Bring KAKAO into the workplace.
Makenzie & Michael McPherson, co-founders of KAKAO, are traveling throughout 2022 to bring cacao workshops into corporations and small businesses globally.
