Guatemalan Ceremonial Cacao
Guatemalan Ceremonial Cacao
Dark and Meditative
Our Guatemalan cacao comes from a Mayan women’s collective - the only indigenous woman run business in their community. The cacao beans are gently toasted over a fire (just enough to loosen the shell), hand peeled, and milled with love by the wonderful women in this collective.
This dark, creamy cacao opens your heartspace and aids in introspection.
Energetically infused with the Cacao CodesTM, a spiritual technology channeled directly from the Spirit of Cacao to activate your cacao to the highest level.
This cacao has a light flavor, providing increased energy and vitality.

From Physical to Spiritual, Cacao supports YOU
Increases blood flow and stimulates the heart, expanding both the heart and the heart chakra
Increases Energy Levels
Theobromine, not caffeine. Creates a sense of mellow alertness and energy without the “caffeine crash”
Enhances Mood and Creativity
Contains serotonin and causes the release of endorphins, dopamine, and oxytocin - neurochemicals that are naturally released when falling in love
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Reduces the stress hormone cortisol and contains anandamide, the “bliss molecule,” which calms your mind and body while enhancing your mood and concentration
Boosts Memory and Concentration
Flavanols in cacao increase blood flow to the brain, improving brain function - better reaction time, visual-spacial awareness, concentration and memory
Aids in Weight Loss
Boosts your metabolism while reducing sugar, alcohol and hunger cravings
Boosts Athletic Performance
Increases the production of nitric oxide in the blood, supporting circulation and reducing the amount of oxygen required for exercise, allowing workout intensity to maintain for longer. Also great for high altitudes!

Polyphenols and flavanols in cacao can lower markers of inflammation and support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria in the body
High in Antioxidants
More than 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries! Cacao has the highest flavonoid content by weight of any other food - helping regulate cellular activity and fighting off free radicals
Can strengthen the defenses of your immune system and increase the body's resistance to dis-ease
Lowers Blood Pressure
The flavanols in cacao may lower blood pressure and improve blood flow while reducing inflammation
From Bean to Cup, we practice the most ethical, sustainable sourcing and production practices possible.
We source directly from the community to ensure they are paid more than Fair Trade prices and are supported in sustainable farming practices.
Inspired by the Mayans, we make cacao the way it always has been. Almost.
Ferment at Farm
Turn into Granules
We follow the inspiration of the Mayans in every step of our cacao production process, while adding a bit of modern technology into the mix.
We lightly toast our beans at a consistent low temperature, ensuring the nutritional and energetic aspects of the cacao are retained, while enhancing the flavors you love. These beans are stone ground with granite (and Love!) to produce the smooth, creamy texture and taste that makes Love Cacao so satisfying.
We’ve traveled the world to bring the best cacao to you.
Love Cacao was founded by Mindy West, who made it her mission to share the best cacao from around the world with as many people as possible.
She truly believes that if every mother started her day with cacao (love) instead of coffee (anxiety), she would treat her children differently – with more warmth, love, and compassion. Those children would be kinder to their peers at school. Those peers would go home and be more loving to their parents. The parents calmer and more open to their partners. And the ripple effect goes on!
It’s not just children and parents who benefit. It’s everyone. And that’s why Mindy is so dedicated to sharing cacao.
