Our Ceremonial Cacao.

Ceremonial Grade Cacao is a sacred plant medicine that has been used for centuries by indigenous cultures in the Amesoamerica. It is a powerful tool for spiritual growth, emotional healing, and physical well-being. Unlike traditional cocoa powder or chocolate, ceremonial grade cacao is not processed with additives or chemicals, and is instead sourced from ethical and sustainable farms that prioritise the well-being of the environment and the workers involved in the production process.

At Grounded Cup, we source the best quality ceremonial cacao in Peru from ethical and sustainable family-owned farms. Our cacao is handcrafted with natural and unique therapeutic properties and is rich in essential vitamins and minerals that nourish the mind, body, and spirit.

We believe in seed-to-consumer transparency and support sustainable farming practices that prioritise the well-being of both people and the planet. By choosing Grounded Cup, you're supporting a conscious company that values the sacredness of ceremonial cacao and its role in connecting us with the earth, spirit, and community. Join us on a soulful journey with the best quality ceremonial cacao available in Australia.

GC Cermonial Grade Cacao

Our GC Ceremonial Cacao is a sacred offering from the heart of the Amazon rainforest. The cacao beans are single-origin Criollo variety, grown in harmony with the land and ancient traditions. We honour the guardians of the cacao tree, the jaguar, and the monkey, and the vibrant energy of Mother Earth herself.

During harvesting, the farmers bless our cacao, infusing it with good energy and intention. This 100% organic cacao is solidified into a 600-gram block, preserving its rich aroma, delicate flavour, and beneficial properties. By taking the time to grate and melt the cacao block, you can connect more deeply with this sacred plant medicine and fully experience its transformative qualities.

Our GC Ceremonial Cacao Paste is recommended for use in enhancing spiritual practices such as meditation, journaling, breath-work, cacao ceremonies, or even grounding walks in nature.

We honour the ancient tradition of cacao ceremonies and offer this pure and potent cacao paste to support your spiritual journey. Let the spirit of cacao nourish your mind, body, and spirit while supporting your overall well-being.

Amaru Cacao Paste

The Amaru Paste is a rare, 100% organic, single-origin ceremonial cacao with unique therapeutic properties. Hand-crafted from criollo cacao in Tocache, Peru, it is organically shade-grown and hand-selected for the best potency and quality.

The Spiral in Andean cosmovision represents the Ukhu Pacha - the world below and the connection to our ancestors, and this ceremonial paste is made in honour of the Awajun tribe.

It brings uplifting, heart-opening bliss and energizing clarity, making it perfect for use in ceremonies involving movement, breath work, dance, expression, and daily use for energy, immunity, balance, and well-being. With a strong profile of sweet and fruity flavours absorbed from the Amazonian agroforestry in which it grows, it has shown it to be potent in levels of ethanolamides (NAEs), polyphenols, and tryptophan for intense bliss, mental clarity, joy, and happiness.

Uturunku Cacao Paste

The Uturunku by Seleno Health is handcrafted from indigenous cacao in Tarapoto, Peru, in honor of the Uturunku (Jaguar).

This rare and ancestral cacao is grown from wild trees in the area, making it a unique ceremonial cacao. The Uturunku (Quecha language - Jaguar) in Andean cosmovision represents the Kay Pacha - the natural world of the here and now, which makes it ideal for grounding and inner work.

The pods of the Uturunku are less dense and thicker-walled, resulting in less cacao per year, hence its rarity but producing a rich and complex flavour profile.

We recommend this cacao for use in ceremonies involving embodiment, trauma release, meditation, connection, and awakening, and for daily use to assist with feeling present, improving mental health, providing mental connection, and mind-body-spirit balance. The rarity and potency of the Uturunku make it a special and powerful ceremonial tool.

Thankful Reverence

As we embark on this journey of sharing cacao and its transformative power, we want to acknowledge and honour the rich cultural heritage from which it originated in Mesoamerica and the Amazon rainforest. Our intention is to create a space that pays deep respect to the traditions, wisdom, and communities that have nurtured and preserved cacao for generations. We approach our work with reverence, embracing the opportunity to adapt and create our own rituals that authentically reflect our experiences and intentions, while honoring the essence of cacao.
