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 on the Preparation page and enjoy this powerful, heart opening medicine.
KAKAO is a high-vibe, ceremonial-grade 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.
Ingredients & Nutrition
- 100% Whole cacao beans (stone-ground into a paste and then chopped for your convenience)
All of our ingredients are directly sourced in Peru from small, wild farms that are natively owned.
KAKAO is not sold as a block. But rest assured, this is 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.

I am the Authority of my voice and how I choose to express my truth.
I am the Authority of my finances, meaning I get to decide what circulates in and out.
I am the Authority of my creativity, choosing what gets created, when it’s created and how it’s brought to life.
I am the Authority of my message and purpose, acknowledging that my true authority comes from my life’s experiences.
I am the Authority of my time. I decide into who, what and where I invest it.
I am the Authority of my relationships — I am the core determinant of the depth of intimacy and satisfaction that is present within them all.
I am the Authority of my relationship to 2020, choosing what to focus on, what to engage with and how to respond.
