Ceremonial Cacao Ireland


We are proudly sourcing our finest raw Cacao directly from the "place of many trees", i.e. Guatemala. The Central-American rainforest is the home of MAMA Cacao, where the isolated, indigenous organic farmers grow this heavenly medicine for hundreds of years. They carefully ferment, dry, and roast the Cacao at their plantation. The careful processing and hand peeling of the seeds ensure that each bean is in the most spectacular state.





You can enjoy Cacao is many various ways. If you haven't tried it yet, why don't you join one of our upcoming Cacao Ceremonies?
