Der Arhuaco - indigener & zeremonieller Kakao
Exclusive ceremonial Kakao from the indigenous Arhuaco tribe from the Sierra Nevada of Colombia - transported climate-neutrally by sailboat
In the winter of 2021, we, Anka & Mischa, had the chance to visit the Arhuacos in northern Colombia, to be with them and learn from their deeply connected culture. You can find more about our adventure with this fascinating tribe in this blog post.
What we didn't see coming at the time was the opportunity to directly purchase a limited number of cacao beans of the original Businchari (translated: new beginning) variety during our visit. The fact that these could then also be transported climate neutrally by sailboat is a very special gift. Here is a fact sheet on this unique bean.
I would like to share this gift with you and give you the opportunity to dive into the noble connection of polarities, as it has always been lived by the Arhuaco. With this cacao you receive the embodiment of a mysticism and wisdom that is thousands of years old. In addition, by purchasing it, you are helping to ensure that this culture continues to flourish and blossom anew.
For every half kilogram of this special cacao sold, we will donate 10€ to the Arhuacos Association to finance new pruning shears for the management of their rare cacao trees.
The transmission as well as the coordination of the donations is done by our professional partner Original Beans, represented on site by Jan Schubert.
And of course, our principle of the value chain also applies to this cacao.
The species-rich coastal forest, which is protected by its organic cultivation.
The indigenous farmers, who are paid far above the FairTrade world market price and without price fluctuations.
The environment through climate-positive, gentle cultivation & transport.
We, who are allowed to process it lovingly and in deep gratitude in our manufactory.
You, when it finally lands in your favorite cup and makes your heart smile.
Your loved ones, as soon as they hear from you what a miraculous turn your life has taken since this Kakao enriched your life.
As you may have heard, Kakao is a commodity that has been carefully cultivated and celebrated by mankind for thousands of years. It's at home in rituals, prayers and meditation. And it doesn't just look good....
