Quality you can taste!
We want to Share the Love in everything we do, from how farmers are paid to how we caretake the earth, from the quality of our processing to the consistency of our product. This is why we guarantee what we make and know you’ll love it!
All our cacao is all from Guatemala, whose climate and soils grow some of the best cacao. We source exclusively from small family farms, located in an area with a long history as a prime cacao growing region.
The cacao is certified organic, without the use of pesticides or other chemicals. We pay above international prices for cacao, ensuring that the small-scale farmers and workers all along the production process receive a fair wage.
The farm we work with selects premium varieties to plant and propagate. After the cacao pods are harvested, the cacao beans are fully fermented by professionals trained in this vital, often lacking, step. Once the beans have undergone their transformation, they are sun-dried and sent to our chocolate shop.
We work closely with a bean-to-bar chocolatier who then precision roast the beans and remove the husks. The hand-crafted block of cacao we carry is made by grinding the nibs into a fine paste and tempering the final product.

I use a small drink every morning to stabilize my blood sugar right off the bat, and it helps set me up for stable sugar through the day.
It is the best texture, and I trust the whole process of how it comes to my kitchen, so I feel good about my purchase.
I make it with coconut oil and local raw honey.
Cacao is good but the price keeps going up
Thanks for sharing your concerns about the price increase. Over the last 11 years since we were founded, the 2 price increases we have made have strictly been about off-setting our own increased costs from high quality, fairly traded cacao beans, as well as labor intensive bean-to-bar production. Affordability is very important to us, so we take these decisions seriously. We have always kept our business stream-lined to keep our prices well below those of our competitors, as we value this organic approach to growing our business.
This an excellent cocao product, reasonably priced, carefully packaged and reliably shipped and delivered. I hope this family business thrives while sourcing cacao respectfully, Five stars and a high five.
I've been using Heartblood for ceremonial work for a few years now and have ALWAYS been impressed by their reverence for the medicine and dedication to service. I recommend them with my whole heart.
LOVE the Ceremonial Cacao Bar. There's something about chopping up the cacao every morning for myself that adds to the ceremonial and meditative nature of my morning cacao drinking ritual. It's affordable, wonderful quality, and warms my heart. Thank you Heartblood!

Our Single-origin cacao is from small family farms in Guatemala. Guatemala has a rich history connected to cacao, and the farms are located in Laguna Lachua, in the north-central area of the country, home to Q’eqchi’ Maya families. They farms are organized as an association to cooperate on the central processes of fermenting & drying.
Quality is everything
We pay a premium price for a premium product. Our long-term relationship offers us consistently high-quality cacao, and the farms access to a stable and high value market so the farmers can earn a living wage. The farmers association is trained in high quality cacao bean production, from varietal selection to the fermentation & sun-drying process, keeping more value-added at the source and ensuring professional standards in growing & processing.
