Natural paste (cocoa mass) made from ground cocoa beans (theobroma cacao), also known as ceremonial cocoa, is 100% real, unprocessed, fat-free cocoa.
Yoloxóchitl cocoa has a delicious and deep taste of dessert chocolate. It has notes of beeswax in the background. It is absolutely not sour and although there is a slight and noble bitterness with hints of wormwood at the tail end of the flavour, this cocoa can still be called sweet.
This cacao is grown on a sustainable, small and organic plantation in Mexico's Tabasco state. The fermentation process is greatly aided by the bees that feed on the cocoa beans, which proves the purity of this cocoa from any pesticides, so if only it had EU certification it could be successfully called organic or BIO cocoa.
It is made from a blend of Guayaquil (30%) and Criollo (70%) beans.
Ceremonial cocoa contains the energy-boosting theobromine and is therefore a healthy substitute for coffee. The effect of theobromine is much more subtle and milder than that of caffeine. It also contains anandamide, which has a calming and opening effect on the mind and heart. Therefore, ceremonial cocoa improves mood and promotes creativity. Thanks to its high fat content, cocoa nourishes the body well, and the minerals (magnesium, potassium) and antioxidants it contains keep our body and mind healthy and youthful.
It is not without reason that the Maya called cocoa the food of the gods.
