KAKAO x LHK
HEARTFELT AND CONSCIOUS COLLABORATION
Firstly, let it be known that this heartfelt partnering with this wonderful company and this life-changing plant, ceremonial cacao, is my deepest honour yet in all of my work here in the LHK space…
I will forever be humbled to be in service to the plants. This one, in particular, has brought with it much heart healing and opening in my personal life and my joy, my pleasure, my honour, is to be trusted to share it with you here… From my cacao infused heart right to yours…
When you see KAKAO spelt with K’s you know you are experiencing the beautiful company that I align with here… Fly Kakao. A not for profit that is brimming with heart and integrity.
Cacao spelt with C’s is the medicine. The tree, the bean, the spirit, the elixir, the ceremony, the bliss….

HOW TO BLEND
your perfect cup
Please ensure you are well hydrated before, during & post cacao consumption. Cacao is a diuretic, meaning if you were dehydrated before consumption, a headache may be experienced. We also recommend that you do not consume caffeine, alcohol, or heavy/fatty foods for a few hours before you work with Cacao.
Bring awareness to your breath and intention. Making Cacao with love and full presence is a must for a ceremonial experience.
Heat 8oz (or mug-full) hot water in kettle or stovetop.
For best results, use a blender safe for hot liquids*.
*If you do not have a blender safe for hot liquids, use a whisk. We do not temper our chocolate, meaning separation can occur. A blender ensures the creamiest consistency. Our favourite is the Vitamix or an immersion/stick blender.
Blend water + 4tbsp KAKAO until creamy
Maca powder, cinnamon, coconut oil, extra cayenne, etc.
Our Blend was made so that you don't have to add anything else.
The guidance you find here has been cultivated during experiences in modern times by western seekers. It is by no means supposed to emulate the true nature of the shamans and indigenous historical ceremonies. It is, however, a beautiful way to bring our reverence to the plant. We as partners with the plant are always learning and offering up our questions, our curiosities and our willingness to learn and respect the history and tradition attached to cacao… I humbly remain a curious student alongside you on this journey… rather than claiming to be an expert or take any ownership whatsoever.
Come to sit comfortably with your perfectly blended cup and allow me to guide you into your sacred solo ceremony with an opening blessing…

“In addition to KAKAO's mission to make ethically sourced ceremonial-grade cacao accessible for heart-healing across the globe, as a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization, we have a responsibility to give back to the communities and people involved in growing, harvesting and making our product.
While paying beyond fair-trade prices has been a non-negotiable since day 1, KAKAO stands to take it further.
Our aim is to be profitable no later than early 2021 and partner with the team on the ground in actualizing our first give-back project.”
