    This Sacred Ceremonial Cacao is made from fine flavour trinitario cacao beans sourced from the VAICACAO farm, in El Salvador. This sustainable farm is located in an area that once was populated by the Mayan and still preserves a unique and magical vibration.
    This Ceremonial Cacao is unsweetened and entirely natural. Craftmade following high-quality standards and procedures in order to preserve the original cacao aroma and nutrients.
    The taste is bitter, due to the absence of added sugar and is perfect for your morning meditation or daily rituals and of course for sacred cacao ceremonies.
    This product is perfect, simple at it is, for making cold or hot drinking chocolate.

     

    100% Ceremonial Grade Cacao


Perfect on it's own as a ceremonial drinking chocolate, or to enhance your daily smoothies or tonics.   


VAICACAO RECOMEND:


- Use a good mineral water (avoid tap water) instead of cow milk. You can also use any plant-based milk in order to give more flavours. 


-A ceremonial dose is usually around 30 grams for one person, mixed with 80 ml of water into a drink. 

- You can also blend it all in a normal blender. Just add the water and the cacao to the blender and wait 10 seconds aprox.


Traditionally cacao was served with chilli (we like cayenne pepper) and honey, but you can also combined it with other herbs or superfoods to assist a particular journey, such as cinnamon, ginger, maca, moringa, vanilla etc. 


-We suggest to drink water before and after your ritual. 


-Avoid to drink caffeine and energy drinks the day you took the ceremonial. 



VAICACAO was born when Juan and Elisa, partners in life and business, were called to "bridgethe gap" between some of the best cacao varieties in Central America andconsumer markets. 


Not only do they offer cacao from their family farm in El Salvador, but they also create opportunities for fellow farmers with unique cacao varieties,so that people can appreciate the story and individuality of each single origin strainand the diversity of this fabulous and magical crop. 


"We gently transform the whole cacao beans ourselves by using artisanprocesses, preserving its unique flavors, aroma and vital nutrients, sothat people can enjoy the wonderful experience that cacao can provide when minimally processed (we avoid any extra treatments to our production, like bigindustries do).  


We are excited about the various challenges that come along withour business when doing everything at a small scale.
