CUATRO MANOS Y CINCO VOLCANES
WHAT'S IN A NAME
Why are we called this?!?!?
It takes many hands to farm, care, create and distribute!! By honoring this we are also honoring the four directions of the island, of the world and all the people who make this possible!
Currently we are the only ceremonial cacao being made on the island
Tree to DISC
No Child Labor
Made to Order
All our cacao is made for ceremony in a sustainable and prayerful way. All cacao tempered from cacao paste.
Cacao paste is made from the whole cacao bean. Compared to cacao powder, which has been defatted, cacao paste is typically 50% cacao butter.
Ceremonial cacao is made with cacao paste, because cacao butter is the best carrier for the beneficial compounds in cacao. This means that our bodies are able to absorb more of the nutrients.
Cacao paste is made from high quality cacao beans that have been fermented, dried, lightly roasted, cracked and winnow, ground, conched, and tempered.
