How to Prepare Ceremonial Cocoa?

Part 3


Preparing ceremonial cocoa is an art in itself. It is not just about mixing cocoa with water, but a ritual that requires attention, intention and care. In this blog post, we will show you how to prepare The Chocolate Shop’s ‘Ceremonial Grade Drinking Cacao Peru 200 gr’ for an authentic ceremonial experience.

The Basics of Ceremonial Cocoa Preparation:

  • Start by measuring out the right amount of cocoa. For a full ceremonial dose, use about 35 to 40 grams.
  • Heat water to just below boiling point. Use about 125 ml of water for every 35 to 40 grams of cocoa.

The Blending Process:

  • Add the cocoa to the hot water. You can do this in a blender for a smooth texture, or blend by hand for a more traditional experience.
  • When mixing by hand, stir with love and attention, while perhaps saying an intention or prayer.

Personalizing Your Drink:

  • Ceremonial cocoa is open to personalization. Add spices such as cinnamon, chili, or cardamom for added flavor and energizing properties.
  • Some people add a sweetener, such as honey or maple syrup, but this is optional and depends on personal preference.

The Importance of Intention:

As you prepare the cocoa, it is important to do so with a clear intention. This may be a personal goal, a desire for healing or insight, or simply a desire to be open to the experience.

In conclusion

Preparing ceremonial cocoa is a ritual that connects us to the earth and the power of cocoa. With these steps, you are well on your way to experiencing a meaningful and healing cocoa ceremony.
