This Mayan Criollo Cacao grows in an organic food forest in Guatemala. The Maya have a long history of cacao tradition that still exists today. Criollo is a rare native cacao variety. 

The genetic variety of this cacao is native to the land and the Maya people. The cacao beans are white instead of dark purple. The taste is softer and the effect is stronger, which is beautiful in a pure drink. The farm has a regrowth project to bring back this native variety in a natural way, growing the trees from seed and hand selecting the beans on quality.


Our cacao is 100% natural and pure, without sugar or additives. 

Did you know that pure cacao has neurocognitive enhancing effects?


The cacao is prepared in a traditional way with knowledge that is passed on for generations. It is minimally processed preserving all healthy and active nutrients resulting in a high quality ceremonial cacao. Handled with love, care and intention for cacao drinks that are both powerful in spirit and effect.


Organically grown in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala.
Taste notes: very soft and smooth taste with a warm, nutty aroma.


Ideas to enjoy:
- 100% pure drink.
- with spices like cardamom, cinnamon and chili.
- high ceremonial grade quality.
- delicious to combine with work for focus & creativity.
- you get the best frothy result by blending it for 10sec with a frother or (hand)blender.


100% pure cacao flakes

Made from ground whole cacao beans, our flakes are the same as a cacao block. The small pieces make them extra easy in use: just scoop and mix into a frothy drink. Put them next to your coffee and tea at home or at work to enjoy in your daily life.

>> ‘criollo’ literally means ‘from this land’ and is used in different places. A criollo variety in Nicaragua, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela or Mexico can be different from Guatemala. There are many different names and cacao genetics are much more complex than this, but these unique varieties are important to protect and regrow.

Quick delivery, great kakaw

I really appreciated the quick delivery by Pure Kakaw. It really was next day delivery. Still I have one small remark. I asked some questions about the product via the webform. Till this day no response. Therefore I give 4 instead of 5 stars.

But as said, the product and delivery where perfect. Thanks for that! I have had some great insightful ceremonies during Christmas and New Year :)


Ik ben een beetje beteuterd want ik klop me suf met een garde, helaas niet de schuim die ik ooit geproefd had. Ook met melkschuimer geen gewenst resultaat. Met water en met havermelk geprobeerd. Iemand een tip?
