100% Organic, single-origin, rare indigenous Peruvian ceremonial cacao with potent and unique therapeutic properties. Scientifically researched and supported by a Callaghan Innovation research grant.

The Spiral in Andean cosmovision represents the Ukhu Pacha - the world below and the connection to our ancestors. This special ceremonial paste is hand-crafted from criollo cacao in Tocache, Peru, in honour of the Awajun tribe who hold the spiral cacao temple of Monte Grande in Jaen. 

It is organically shade-grown and hand-selected by our artisanal farmer to the best potency and quality of each block. The Amaru cacao is an externalising cacao that brings uplifting, heart opening bliss and energising clarity.

Please note there are some delays on the Amaru dispatch dates, you might also like to try our GC Cacao Block if you prefer not to wait.

Tax included.
A ceremonial Criollo cacao that has an incredible ratio of 29:1 - theobromine:caffeine. Perfect for the uplifting, heart opening effects without the negative side-effects of caffeine over-stimulation.

Our biochemical analysis has shown it to be also potent in levels of ethanolamides (NAEs) for feelings of intense bliss, polyphenols for mental clarity and tryptophan for sensations of joy and happiness. It has a strong profile of sweet and fruity flavours absorbed from the Amazonian agroforestry in which it grows.



Made only from the virgin crop, meaning the first crop of the tree and hand-selected pods. Our ceremonial cacao is a fermented and full bean, generated from milling the whole bean into a creamy, rich paste following ancient traditions.

It contains all the antioxidants and bioactive of the whole bean, with beautiful rich aromatic oils to make a therapeutic, creamy elixir once mixed into hot water.

Tested and shown to contain the highest levels of theobromine (uplifting), ethanolamides (bliss), tryptophan (joy), tryptamine (euphoria), phenylethylamine (satisfaction), polyphenols (clarity), magnesium (stress), zinc (immune) and other essential minerals. The most therapeutic quality cacao you can find, ideal for ceremonial use and health benefits. Every batch is tested and shown to be safe from heavy metals and cadmium. We work with our partners who go beyond fair trade and work exclusively with one family farm that uses sustainable natural agroforestry practices in Peru.

Our cacao is artisanally grown, fermented and dried (<50 deg), while maintaining neutral acidity to provide the best aroma and taste.

What is Ceremonial Cacao?

Just like wine cacao also has different grades and calibers that differentiate normal cacao to ceremonial cacao.

To be considered ceremonial grade cacao it must meet a few required factors.

Unlike conventional Cacao or cocoa powder that you might find in the supermarket, Ceremonial Grade is prepared from only 100% pure organic cacao beans that have been naturally sun-dried, hand-peeled and milled to form the paste. Nothing added, nothing removed. It is cacao is it’s purest form beautifully blended in its own full-fat to produce a creamy 100% pure block.

Ceremonial Cacao is also blessed by the indigenous owners of the land and produced with respect to their traditional customs and it is packed with health enhancing bio actives to awaken your heart chakra and heal your body.
