HEARTBLISS KAKAO

PURE ECUADORIAN KAKAO FROM TSATSAYAKU ASSOCIATION

Straight from Ecuador, the Association is made up of 140 Kichwa and Mestizo families from 13 different communities, and it’s mission is to produce and conserve ancestral Kakao (Arriba Nacional/Fino de Aroma) that provides a fair price for all of its members.  Working directly with the Indigenous farmers also insures payment on time, supporting them protect their land and their tradition as well as enable them to be more economically independent, whilst maintaining and protecting the forest and wildlife they inhabit.

The organic kakao itself is grown in the traditional Kichwa farming method ‘Chakra’, which has a conscientious respect for the natural environment. The organic approach seeks to preserve biodiversity and natural resources.

  • Every bag of the wild-harvested is organic, non-GMO Tsatsayaku Kakao and is lovingly hand-packaged in 200g & 500g fully recyclable bags.

  • Tsatsayaku Kakao is from the Fino de Aroma Bean

  • A 500g bag can last about one month depending on usage.

  • I suggest 20-25gms Kakao a day to keep the Doctor away.

  • This Kakao is usually used as a warm, nourishing Kakao drink to uplift your spirit and calm your heart, but it’s also great in smoothies, can be used to make Kakao treats, and can even be added it to sauces, stews and casseroles, to zing up your savoury dishes.

  • When you have your ceremonies with me and get your Kakao, you are not only receiving her healing in a bag of pure goodness and love, you are also directly supporting the Tsatsayaku Association/Tribe and helping them to maintain and sustain their traditional ways of life.

How to prepare your personal Kakao at home?

Kakao is the only Master Plant Medicine that you can take on a regular basis.  However, 40 gram of ceremonial dose is very heavy on the adrenals and therefore should only be done in ceremony.  If you take antidepressants, you should only take half a dose.

So you can use daily in smaller dose per day as a substitute to coffee by making a hot chocolate drink using 20-25 grams of the Kakao depending on your needs.  It can be made with hot water or plant milk, you can also add chilli powder, nutmeg, cinnamon., cloves, sweetener of your choice.  Be creative and play with the flavours as you like.

You can also sprinkle some shopped Kakao on your cereals or in your smoothie.

 

Here how to make it for one person:

  • bring one cup of spring water to almost boiling point, turn the heat right down

  • add 4 and half TBSP of shopped Kakao

  • stir until it thickens, turn off the heat.  Add your spices and sweetener if desired ​

Simple version:

  • In a blender, pour 1 cup of hot water (careful with blending hot water)

  • add 4 TBSP of shopped cacao and blend.  Add whatever you desire.
