Ceremonial Cacao

Cacao has been cultivated by indigenous cultures for thousands of years and is considered a sacred plant. The taste varies depending on the cacao variety and processing method.

Ceremonial grade cacao differs from commercial cacao used in chocolate production. They are often industrialized hybrid cacao varieties to which sugar, milk powder and other ingredients are added. Ceremonial cacao, also called raw cacao, is 100% pure cacao paste, without any additives and without anything being extracted from the cacao. In this case, raw means as much as pure. Because of the processing, including the fermentation of the cacao beans, high temperatures are already reached, so that the cacao is no longer "raw" in the understanding of raw food.

About the Heart Essence Cacao - 100% pure cacao paste

Chuncho is known for its intense flavor and melt-in-the-mouth texture. Sourced from the landscapes of southern Peru, this cacao is nurtured by local small farmers using organic practices in the Cusco highlands, nestled close to the iconic Machu Picchu. These fertile lands were once considered the gateway to the lush jungle, the realm of the "chunchos," or savages, in Inca times – a history that gives rise to the name of the original cacao. Immerse yourself in this captivating journey of flavors and heritage.

Chuncho cacao is one of the oldest types of cacao in the world. Researchers estimate that the oldest trees are around 200 years old. Scientists say this cacao is one of the most aromatic varieties in the world.

What is cocoa used for?


Cacao has a heart-opening effect on an energetic level. The plant spirit of cacao is a perfect companion for spiritual practice.

Cacao contains powerful components that stimulate the production of our feel-good hormones such as serotonin and dopamine, which lifts our mood and can contribute to relaxation.


Due to the high proportion of theobromine, which dilates the blood vessels, drinking cacao can help our body to be better supplied with oxygen. This allows us to engage in deep meditations and gain more focus.

Basically, the effect of cacao is individual, the plant medicine always gives you what your body and mind are ready for.
