FIREFLY RECOMEND:


Foundational Ceremonial Cacao Recipe For One Person: 


1) Heat water to 170 degrees. Or use a nut milk as the base for your cacao drink. Hazelnut milk, almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, all make excellent options. Try not to boil the water – just like green tea, you can heat out all the powerful nutrients. We use a handheld thermometer or electric kettle with temperature control. If you’re in a pinch, boil water and let it cool for a few minutes first, or just boil it and then add a cup of cold water to it. 


 2) Select your dosage with intention. As you’re getting started, it is good to take note of how your body responds to different amounts, as everybody is different. 


Everyday dose 5-12 discs ½ cup water 

Ceremonial dose 12-20 discs ½ - 1 cup water 


 3) Make it creamy! Place cacao in a blender, pouring 4-5 oz. of heated water per serving and gently blend for 15 seconds to create a delicious, frothy drink. For a single serving you can also place the discs in a mug, and then blend with a , which requires less cleanup. Traditional methods of mixing cacao in Latin America include , which you can also find under the name, batador, in the Philippines. 


4) Keep your eyes open for beautiful mugs and cups … a beautiful vessel to hold your lovingly crafted drinking chocolate adds the perfect finishing touch! If you’d like, tag us on Instagram @cacaoceremony to share your creations. Creative suggestions for serving ... drop some pomegranate seeds into your cacao and while drinking scoop them out with a spoon as a special treat. Or drop one extra disc of cacao on top of the frothy cup of cacao you made - it will melt to the bottom of your cup! 

What started as a simple lesson in traditional chocolate making now sees Firefly founder Jonas and his partner Sena traveling to cacao farms in Belize, Guatemala, and Tanzania to bring back some of the best cacao from hundreds of small family owned permaculture cacao farms.  


With a focus on sustainability, Jonas & Sena only source from small-holder organic farms, typically 0.5 acre to 5.0 acres in size.   The cacao grown on these farms tends to be a locally distinct genetic varietal, sometimes with an heirloom designation, that our partners support with seedling propagation in small nurseries. There is a focus on not just organic principles but regenerative permaculture principles that actually improve the thriving of the land over time, whether that is tending to watersheds, building topsoil, or increasing biodiversity.
