If you are after cacao in its true and original form, then look no further. Our ceremonial grade cacao buttons are pure, powerful and unprocessed - fully aligned with the wisdom of Mother Nature.
Ceremonial grade cacao is also known as cacao paste. This is cacao in its most authentic form, with nothing added, or removed. The natural healthy fat (cacao butter) in the cacao remains intact, facilitating optimal absorption of key nutrients. Full fat = full healing power!
It is made by fermenting, sun drying and toasting the beans, removing the husk, then stone-grinding them down to create a paste. The paste is moulded and set into our easy to use cacao buttons.
Crafted with care and intention in small batches, our buttons are the perfect companion with meditation, yoga, breath work, dance, art, writing, music and spiritual practice. Mamamuti cacao buttons can enhance awareness, euphoria presence, and focus - activating creativity. Feel grounded and tuned into the frequency of love!
No more messy shaving issues with a bulky cacao block. Our buttons are easy to measure. Effortless preparation for personal or a group ceremony.
Why is this cacao so special?
Each serve of our ceremonial grade cacao buttons lovingly connects you directly to the farmers and communities in the cacao growing region of Central Peru. This premium cacao has a delicious, smooth, chocolate flavour and is tended to in areas where, for years, there were issues with the cocaine cartel, farmer exploitation and extreme poverty. Growing these illegal crops was the only option these cacao farmers had. Thankfully these rich, fertile lands have now been rescued and the farmers have returned to their thousand year old tradition of cultivating some of the worlds best cacao. This heart opening strain of shade-grown Central Amazonian 'criollo' cacao promotes biodiversity and improves soil fertility.
Your purchase helps to create a sustainable and socially just cacao future.
