How this adventure started for us
Through travels in South and Central America we got first experience with pure cacao. And it has been impressive. Before, we only knew cacao as the ingredient for chocolate or chocolate milk. Apart from stories about its health benefits, less is known about its tradition as a sacred plant. We learned how cacao as an ingredient for most chocolate is highly processed for taste, costs and derivative products. This processing destroys many healthy and active ingredients which make cacao so special. Experiencing the power of pure cacao added a whole new view. An experience we love to share.
Our goals are to:
Find the best quality cacao for potent cacao drinks.
Support agroforestry farming, ecology and biodiversity.
Create transparency and fairness in the supply chain.
Bridge spirituality and science for healthy living.
We want to share cacao and explore further why many native people valued this plant so highly. The Mayans used the word 'kakaw' which we use in our name with respect to a time when cacao prospered. We feel it is time again to experience how cacao can support us in health, positive energy, meditation, creativity and focus.
