Say hello to Soma Cacao!  A small Australian business whose focus is bringing you the highest quality of raw cacao, packed full of nutrients, direct from the farmer while minimising their impact on the environment.

This Balinese Cacao is sourced from a farmer's collective in one of the most spiritual places on Earth.  The farmers offer daily prayers, offerings and ceremonies at each stage from planting through to harvest, which reflects a deep level of devotion and respect unique to the Balinese culture.  Each farm has a "pelinggih" or shrine from which they offer devotions to the Pacha Mama and the Hindu Gods.

Your cacao will come as solidified cacao paste, which we have hand-chopped into chunks for your convenience and packaged into recyclable pouches.

Being handled by the highly experienced chocolate makers in Ubud means that this raw cacao maintains the highest concentration of essential minerals, antioxidants, and bliss-inducing compounds.

Be warned - this is highly potent cacao, not for the faint-hearted.

"The Mayans called cacao “the food of the gods”. Along with its rich history of ritualistic and medicinal use, cacao’s crown jewel is theobromine: a gentle, long lasting stimulant that energises us like caffeine, without punishing us with brain-fog and jittery hands later in the day. It’s also rich in essential minerals and produces mood-boosting bioactive compounds - dopamine, serotonin, anandamide (the 'bliss molecule') and P.E.A, an antidepressant also known as the 'love drug'."  -- Soma Cacao
