TIERRA MAYA brings you 100% Pure Cacao from the ancient Mayan lands of Guatemala.
We offer directly sourced, artisanally crafted cacao (all handmade, with no use of industrial machinery!) that comes in block form and is prepared fresh to order. In purchasing our cacao, you are supporting indigenous Mayan mothers and special needs youths on the shores of Lake Atitlan.
TIERRA MAYA cacao is ceremonial grade, meaning that it is cacao in its purest form... harvested from clean cultivation, prepared with zero added
ingredients and without industrial processing, and indeed made with such love and care to serve as a sacred medicine.
We bring you more than just
We offer you the sharing of cultural heritage, ancestral traditions, a true superfood and medicine for the heart, and all whilst taking great care of our Mother Earth and her indigenous children.
We encourage you to sit with your cacao, to set your intentions, give thanks and explore your inner kingdom!
TIERRA MAYA cacao is sourced from Maya Moon Cacao; a 100% Mayan owned collective of indigenous mothers and special needs youths who artisanally produce our cacao products.
The cacao beans are roasted, hand-peeled and ground by this wonderful team before then being moulded into our smooth blocks of rich cacao paste.
TIERRA MAYA cacao is of single origin. Our native ‘criollo’ cacao beans are
sourced directly from our farmers in a remote village called Lachua, situated
in Cobán, Alta Verapaz; a highland region in Central Guatemala.
Here our cacao is organically grown, harvested, fermented and dried before being transported to the small Kaqchikel village of San Marcos La Laguna on the shores of Lake Atitlan.
Signifying life and fertility, it’s thought that cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America; the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures.
Theobroma Cacao is rich in magnesium, potassium, iron, and theobromine. This superfood provides the body with nutrients, antioxidants and also the neurotransmitters serotonin, tryptophan and dopamine, which help to feel good, combat stress and harness renewed motivation.
The phenylethylamine content also helps the body to create feelings of excitement and euphoria, while opening up creativity and flow.
TIERRA MAYA invites you to enjoy a ceremonial mug of delicious Mayan cacao. Our pure cacao can also be added to smoothies, porridge, granola, protein balls, dessert recipes and so much more!
