WHAT MAKES FIFTH ELEMENT LANQUIN CACAO SO SPECIAL?

  • High-Quality Cacao - This cacao comes from an ancient farm in Guatemala and it’s made from the highest quality beans, known as Criollo
  • Handmade - Each step of the process, including sun drying, roasting, peeling, and grinding, is performed by hand with greater care and intention
  • Way Beyond Fair Trade - Our cacao farmers and producers set their own prices, and receive way more than the fair trade rate, which would still be exploitative
  • Authentic Mayan Tradition - The Cacao collectives we work with is rooted in authentic Mayan traditions and values, preserving a rich cultural heritage that has been passed down for centuries
  • Biodiverse Farming - The cacao used in this paste is grown using regenerative and biodiverse farming practices that prioritize the health of the soil, wildlife, and ecosystem
  • Blessed - The Mayan spiritual leaders perform a Mayan ceremony using incense and fire to invoke sacred energies for cleansing, blessing, and protection of the cacao

HOW TO PREPARE A CUP OF CACAO

Mix 2-3 Tbsp of ceremonial cacao into 6-8 oz hot water in a blender and mix until foamy! 

OR EVEN BETTER...

Do it the traditional way and mix your cacao (2-3 Tbsp) with double the amount of hot (but not boiling) water, mix well until it becomes liquid and then add enough hot water to fill your cup. 

TIP: Use a wooden molinillo to prepare your cacao in a truly authentic way!
