Purest Form of Cacao from Guatemala
We have traveled to Guatemala quiet a few times and have formed a beautiful relationship with Cacao Source, a cacao distributor founded by Jojo and Doro, who weave their knowledge of global politics, environmental stewardship, community connection, Mayan wisdom, and cacao ceremonies to bring this incredible plant to the world with all respect and reverence.
While on our trip, we visited local farms and connected directly to the source of cacao. We learned so much about the history of cacao, the many benefits and most importantly the importance of environmental restoration of cacao prevservation and its sacred ceremonies.
Proceeds from Cacao Source support local farmers who independently own their own organic cacao farm and 3 women's collective around Lake Atitlan who use ancient methods to process the cacao.
