Single Estate

This cacao was grown with great care in a large regenerative agroforestry system, respecting the environment, natural cycles, avoiding the use of synthetic chemicals in order to protect the ecosystem and those who work there.


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

ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THIS COCOA

We are very attached to this estate because we have seen it grow from day one, when JuanRa, co-founder of Vaicacao, encouraged his uncle Jaime and his cousin Roberto to plant theobroma cacao trees. The Finca di S.Fernando is located in the Balsamo mountain range, in the municipality of Ateos, El Salvador. The trees grow lush and respecting biodiversity, under a dense agroforestry canopy. We are proud to let you try this unique origin in the world and we are deeply grateful for this important collaboration of intentions between those who grow it and us.

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.
