Cacao

Cacao is the original form of chocolate! The word "chocolate" comes from a Nahuatl word that referred to a cacao drink. But most modern chocolate products are processed and diluted to a point that the original benefits of cacao are no longer present.

Not only does pure cacao contain a high amount of antioxidants plusmagnesium, iron, and other minerals. It also features theobromine, a mildly stimulating compound different than caffeine because sensation is less jittery and it doesn't lead to crash or cravings. Contrary to popular belief, Guatemalan cacao actually contains very little caffeine. You’ll love the elevated mood, focus, and motivation that this amazing coffee alternative offers.

For thousands of years the indigenous cultures of Latin America have also regarded cacao as sacred and a way to connect with the divine. The influx of Europeans led to different production methods including roasting at high heat and removing the healthy cacao butter. Now pure, unprocessed cacao is re-entering the world stage at a time when we need it the most.
