When Florencia visited Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, to study metaphysical practices, she had a transformational experience at a cacao ceremony. After returning to New York, she partnered with her brother, Fede, to found Cacao Lab, bringing ceremonial cacao to the United States. Sourcing trips led the duo to Guatemala and Ecuador, where they found high vibrational cacao that honored the land and Mother Earth.
P.S. Florencia leads ceremonies and educational offerings, working with Nana Marina Cruz, a Mayan wisdom keeper from the T’zutujil community, the keepers and guardians of ceremonial cacao.

(3) Unlike cocoa powder, ceremonial cacao has not been defatted and requires warm water and thorough blending for it to mix well.
Cacao Lab does not add emulsifiers to their cacao. This may lead to naturally occurring fats in cacao to separate from the solids and create white spots or a thin white layer on your cacao. This is called blooming and is normal. The properties of the cacao remain intact and its quality does not change.
