There’s nothing quite like ceremonial cacao produced the ancient traditional way, with beans roasted over a wood fire, peeled by hand, and ground down with no additional processing.

We feel absolutely confident that the flavor and energy of our artisanal cacao produced by family farms and collectives in Guatemala will exceed your needs, whether for meditative use or an afternoon pick-me-up.

Caiti Jackson enjoying Soul Lift Cacao

“I’m finally getting back into the habit of these rituals with the help of ceremonial cacao, which is a wholesome alternative to coffee (a stimulant that hinders more than it helps). Cacao gives me the most gentle of nudges, holding me accountable while keeping me present in the moment. […] If you’re looking to try ceremonial grade cacao, invest in it from Soul Lift Cacao. Nick goes above and beyond to ensure the process is beyond fair trade and the quality is exceptional.”

“I have been loving your cacao and drinking it daily. And everyone that has had it has loved it. Thank you so much.”

–Jamie Dubin, Sound Healer at Harmonic Prana, California

“Wooowww! We had the Soul Lift Cacao at the Align Divine Cacao Ceremony last night and all I can say is wow! That was some incredibly potent medicine. Everyone went so deep and folks who return every month agrees that this was a potent cup for them. Thanks so much for being a bridge for this magic!”

– Carla Samson, carlasamson.com, Michigan

“I decided to give this a try because the shaman at a recent sacred plant medicine ceremony told me about the magic of real cacao. Wow! If we all drank this instead of coffee in the morning, our society would be much more vibrant and colorful! I know I'm probably not doing the ceremony right but I like to drink this some mornings mixed with almond milk and honey. It gives me energy, but a very focused energy, unlike coffee, which gives me empty energy. It makes it easier for me to accomplish tasks because it helps me go about work with joy. I also notice myself laughing and smiling a lot more throughout the day when I drink this cacao.”

“Soul lift Cacao has become an integral part of the practice thanks to the facilitations held by the founder Nick Meador. After attending a very potent somatic breath work activation last January, my intrigue in working with plant medicines was taken to a whole other level, waking up in the morning and beginning my day with a quiet moment in stillness with a warm cup of cacao and listening to the heart beats between breathes has become a most vital and deeply pleasing part of my experience. This stuff lifts your soul up. Definitely Recommend.”
