What is ceremonial grade cacao?

Ceremonial grade cacao is genetically different from 99% of commercially available cacao. Beyond genetics, the intention of using this cacao in ritual and ceremony radically changes the way it is handled, from harvest to your cup. 

Dalileo’s Ceremonial Cacao is made from 100% Criollo cacao variety. Criollo is known for its exceptionally smooth and nutty palate. Unlike conventional cacao or cocoa powder, ceremonial cacao has not been defatted and is stone grounded under low temperatures to maximise its health benefits.

All Dalileo’s cacao trees are grown organically and harvested sustainably, employed by regenerative agroforestry. This also means no chemicals or pesticides. The Mayan community who lives around the farm is in charge of the whole process from seed to bar. Above all, they are deeply dedicated to preserving the ancient Mayan methods, which results in a final product full of wisdom and character. 

The science behind pure cacao 

Unlike processed dark chocolate, Dalileo’s cacao has kept all its beneficial health properties. You will find a higher percentage of antioxidants, magnesium, vitamin B and calcium in cacao than in most other food products. This will protect our heart, cardiovascular system and overall health. It contains theobromine, a natural stimulant for energy, focus and increased blood flow to our brain. Cacao is known for its neurocognitive effects that positively impact our brain and uplift our mood, also known as a true heart opener.  

We recommend 15 grams for a little ritual and up to 30 grams for a ceremonial dose to dive deeper into your practice. Traditionally, the drink is made with water, but you can replace it with any plant-based milk to your liking. Check our website for recipes! 

Note: Adding sugar to your drink will decrease the effects.
