The preparation ritual

Ritual Kakao for many is a novel and at the same time amazing raw material. Its preparation is not complicated. And as with any new beginning, there is much to discover, learn and spill. At the same time, preparing the Kakao can be a ritual in itself and set you up for a time of connection, well-being and joy. Take the time to experience cacao with your senses as you prepare it, and thereby welcome it into your life. So let's get started!

Ein wundervoller Zusammenschnitt von Sinnlichkeit rund um die Zubereitung von Kakao.

Step by step instructions for your ceremonial Kakao

Heat approx. 150ml water or vegetable milk 

(my favourite: oat milk)

Grind the Kakao mass

Weigh 20-25g for an everyday cup and 30g for a ritual cup

Dissolve the Kakao  in the warm liquid - stirring helps!

Flavour your Kakao as you like

Take your time, feel and enjoy your Kakao


Warm water or a plant-based milk substitute

150ml for one cup is a good amount. By heating gently, you can ensure that all the nutrients in the Kakao are preserved for you and strengthen you. 

If possible, the liquid should not boil, otherwise some of the Kakao butter will separate from the Kakao and form a golden film over the drink. This is neither harmful nor disgusting, but I think it tastes best without it.

Chop the Kakao mass with a knife (optional).

Chopping makes the Kakao dissolve more quickly and also makes it easier to measure out. For a ritual cup, I usually use 30 grams of brown gold. For a delicious drinking Kakao for everyday use, I use 20 - 25 grams.

I prefer not to weigh my Kakao. After a few cups, you will know how much Kakao your body and mind like, and you may be able to let your gut tell you how much to drink.

Gently pour the Kakao into the hot liquid and give it time to dissolve completely.

At first, lumps will form, which after a little stirring and stoic patience will turn into a homogeneous, silky drink. The time needed for this is perfect for taking a few deep breaths and getting to grips with your intention for your Kakao.

For the smooth foam lovers among us: in a heat-resistant blender, the Kakao can be stirred to unimagined foaminess. However, points are deducted for this in terms of volume. 

Now is the time for spices

The delicate Kakao butter is an excellent flavour carrier for spices from all over the world. Get creative and let your intuition guide you through your spice rack. It's especially useful to add a little black pepper or cayenne to stimulate circulation and make your body receptive to the flood of nutrients.

My favourites: Lava or sea salt, saffron, cardamom and cinnamon. Don't have time for frills? Use gingerbread spice and don't tell anyone! 

Pour the creation into your favourite mug and make yourself comfortable in a nice place

Connect with your Kakao and your intention. Surrender it to him and let all your senses have their say as you drink. Breathe deeply and relax. Your body knows exactly what is good for it and through the Kakao you enter into a beautiful, sometimes wild communication.

Kakao can also do wondrous things in nature, at work or even in the car. The important thing is that you give yourself the space to enjoy it and receive its message.

Let the magic happen

Let the Kakao work on your mind and body. The next few hours can be filled with ideas, feelings and creativity. So have something ready to write with. Feel the opening of your heart space and enjoy the feeling of being held. The detoxifying component comes into play more in the background. Be sure to drink plenty of water and listen carefully to your body.


Deine eigene Kakaozeremonie

​Eine Zeremonie ist kein Hokuspokus und muss auch nicht an eine Glaubensrichtung oder Substanz gebunden sein. Die Zeremonie ist nichts, was irgendwann mal erfunden wurde, sondern wird seit Anbeginn der Menschheit zelebriert und genutzt, um zu empfangen, zu transformieren und zu manifestieren
