Single Plantation

We believe in the beauty of the cocoa ritual and its ancient role in Mesoamerican culture. For this reason, we have created a cocoa mass with a rough texture, obtained by stone pressing cocoa beans. This pasta will allow you to discover a new aspect of this functional food.

ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THIS COCOA

This cocoa comes from the beautiful Finca of Parras Lempa, S. Vicente, El Salvador. We are united in this plantation by friendship with Benedicto, a visionary farmer who processes cocoa with extreme care and attention. The entire post-harvest process, such as fermentation and drying, takes place on site. It was he who wanted to adopt an ecological production system known as "bio-farming", which goes beyond "organic" and which is achieved through the restoration of the microbiological ecosystem of the soil to enhance the optimal development of the plantation without use of phytochemicals. Its cocoa is generous, fruity and anything but bitter.

WHY PURE CEREMONIAL COCOA?

A delicious and nutritious drink made from our cocoa can replace coffee in the morning and contribute to the health of the nervous system, cognitive system and heart. It also contributes to strengthening the immune system thanks to the action of flavonoids, antioxidants present in cocoa. Cocoa is also considered a mood-improver, that is, thanks to the content of the amino acid tryptophan, it helps the production of serotonin, the good mood hormone, thus improving our emotional state. Cocoa contains neurotransmitters and bliss molecules, such as anandamide, an endocannabinoid produced by our body, and which is further stimulated with cocoa, giving us a feeling of well-being and pleasure. You can drink it in the morning, during or after your meditation session, you can use it for holistic purposes, in cocoa circles to untie emotional knots and introduce it into your diet with awareness.

PREPARE YOUR PERSONAL COCOA AND RITUAL

Cut about 20 g of cocoa with the help of a knife. Heat some mineral water (equivalent to a large teacup - 180-200 ml) or, if you prefer, use a vegetable drink of your choice.

Pour the freshly chopped cocoa into a saucepan and add the hot water little by little (not boiling, otherwise it will alter the flavor of the cocoa and its properties); mix it until it dissolves completely. Add the remaining water. If you can't use the saucepan, you can use a blender or a simple milk frother. The traditional drink is bitter, but if you really can't resist, you can add a date in the blender or a little honey or sugar of your choice.

For a functional effect, an excellent solution is the use of medicinal herbs and spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom, chili pepper, ashwagandha, turmeric, ginger and so on.

Finally, prepare your personal space and serve it in your favorite cup. Breathe and set your intentions for a wonderful day or relaxing afternoon.

SOME RECOMMENDATIONS:


Some people claim that there is a specific "ceremonial" dose and that it is 40 g per person. However, we recommend not to exceed 30 g per person. In the case of daily and continuous use, a use of around 10-15 g would be more appropriate. max. Otherwise it is best to use it every other day.

Since it is pure cocoa mass, it becomes a real, very energetic food; for this reason, it should be drunk with awareness and caution, avoiding excesses, and preferring a varied and balanced diet.

Consult your specialist if you are pregnant or have serious heart conditions.

The stimulating and energizing effect of cocoa begins about half an hour after its intake. We recommend drinking a glass of water before and after to aid absorption and digestion.

Un sorridente compagno di viaggio

Ho sperimentato Tlaloc durante una serie di incontri con il Cacao ed è stato un ottimo compagno. Il colore è scuro ma l'amaro non è forte, anzi, si sente moltissimo il retrogusto di frutta matura che alza il tono dell'umore, ravviva l'immaginazione, energizza il corpo. Un Cacao ideale per stare insieme, celebrare, ridere e danzare. Un fratello di viaggio che sicuramente incontrerò nuovamente!

La medicina

Bevo cacao cerimoniale Vaicacao da qualche mese ormai. Faccio ordini regolarmente e provo tutte le qualità. Questo rito ha aggiunto sostanza alla mia meditazione quotidiana. Non solo perché il cacao di per se è una medicina. Il cacao vaicacao contiene tutto l’amore è la cura delle persone che ci permettono di celebrare quotidianamente la vita è di guarire i nostri cuori. Vaicacao offre qualità, serietà, dedizione, e diffonde una cultura importante e etica. Grazie di cuore
