About Keith’s Cacao
Our chocolate is 100% pure, ceremonial grade cacao – nothing added, never chemically altered and nothing taken away (except the peels and moldy beans). It is our joy to offer this exceptional connection and partnership facilitator medicine plant. Our cacao is here to open your heart, focus your mind, and energize your spirit to Bring on Your Magic!
Guided by the Cacao Spirit, Keith buys Criollo (“wild” or “native”) cacao which is harvested, fermented and dried by small-scale family farms in the mountain rain-forests of Guatemala’s Pacific coast. This region of Central America was revered by the ancients because it produced the finest ceremonial cacao. It takes significant time and Keith’s precise intention to find beans with both the right energy and flavor. It’s worth the effort, as our product has batch-to-batch consistency others cannot match.
Kaqchikel Mayan women from 20+ local families earn an independent income, while working at home, at their own pace, preparing our cacao beans. There are few employment opportunities for women in our community. As we grow, we will create jobs for many more local, indigenous women, providing them with good pay and flexible hours. We are proud to help our community grow in this way.
