In Hawaii, Imua means to “move forward”, and imagine that it’s towards a goal, dream or vision. This blend was inspired by the ancient Mayan cultures, where cacao was often mixed with spicy chilies since ancient times. It is known in Mayan culture that spicy peppers work as a synergistic with cacao, multiplying the effects of cacao on our body, mind and therefore spirit. This is the favorite blend to embody and enhance focus, divine masculinity and a little spice in your life.
Ingredients: Ceremonial Cacao, Kaua’i Red Chili Peppers, Organic Cinnamon, Hawaiian Sea Salt & Love For daily use, we recommend using 11g (equal to 1 tablespoon). For ceremonial use, 22g-50g (2-4 tablespoons) can be used. They do NOT recommend using more than 50g of cacao, as you can experience a “hangover” from using too much of this plant medicine. Start slow and experiment with what’s best for you every day.
Kokolecacao sources their ceremonial cacao from a village in Chiapas, Mexico called Soconusco. The rare criollo variety, with small pods and few seeds, is where the magic lies. These beans contain the highest levels of ceremonial goodies like theobromine, endocannabanoids like anandamide, flavanols and polyphenols. Plus, this cacao isn’t as bitter as its neighbor, Guatemala, producing a smooth, fruit forward chocolate that has been produced in a particular way for thousands of years. May every drink, bite, sniff, nibble, and experience created with our cacao be blessed with love, health, and Allegria (joy).
These bars are so elegantly packaged, nice and thin, with a good snap. The notes are bright, fruity and strong; the chocolate creamy and melty, we did a tasting and this ranked above even the Omnom coffee bar.
Marou's chocolate is best without inclusions, in my opinion. The kumquat was powdered and mixed in rather than sprinkled on the back, which made a nice smooth bar. Recommend for someone who wants to try something new.
