Sending Sunday love your way with this platinum emerald singing bowl cacao ritual! We just went through a potent full moon portal on 12/11 - the last full moon of this year and the entire decade. We are still integrating from the insights and inspiration that came through.⁠ ⁠ As the days become shorter, we find ourselves full of commitments and also ready to cozy up in bed with a book. In ancient times winter was a time for rest & reflection, and we encourage you to create space for yourself with a cup of cacao during the holidays to reflect on 2019, and the decade. Celebrate all that you have accomplished. Let go of what you don't need to bring with you into 2020.⁠ ⁠ Do you have an end of year reflection ritual? We'd love to hear!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📷 @crystalsandcacao⁠ ⁠ #2019reflection #geminifullmoon #singingbowl⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing

cacaoceremony. The seeds for Firefly sprouted in April 2012, when I traveled to Oaxac

The seeds for Firefly sprouted in April 2012, when I traveled to Oaxaca Mexico.⁠ ⁠ Shortly into my stay there, I was invited to stay in Teotitlán del Valle, a Zapotec town with strong chocolate traditions.⁠ ⁠ When I visited Maria, she asked me if I had ever made chocolate before. I had barely said no and she was already on her way to get the cacao beans.⁠ ⁠ So began an afternoon of making chocolate the traditional way ‐ open fire-roasted, hand peeled within sight of their sacred mountain, and stone-ground with a molino. The result? A honey-sweetened chocolate paste, fresher and more delicious than any chocolate I had ever tasted before.⁠ ⁠ After my stay with Maria, I couldn't stop thinking about chocolate, and delving into home chocolate making was sheer magic. I was mesmerized by the tastes, smells, sights, sounds, and textures. And, it began shifting my mood and upleveling my health.⁠ ⁠ Fast forward 7 years and Firefly Chocolate just celebrated it's 5th birthday. Wow! I almost can't believe it 😃⁠ ⁠ In gratitude, we are offering our first free shipping promo ever!

⭐How Will Ceremonial Cacao Make Me Feel?⭐⁠ You may feel expansive, blissful, connected to self and/or others, inspired, connected to your intuition & vision, connected to spirit, grounded, emotions arise, and the movement of stuck energy.⁠ ⁠ When drinking about 1oz of high-quality cacao, one can experience increased blood flow, mood elevation, and a more expanded state of consciousness. Cacao is a vasodilator, meaning your blood vessels and muscular systems relax. When working with ceremonial doses of cacao, one can increase their blood flow by up to 30%, meaning that more blood, (life force energy) is moving through your body and nourishing all of your systems.⁠ ⁠ It's the perfect gift for the health-conscious loved ones in your life this holiday season!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📷 @neema__star⁠ ⁠ #healthconscious #cacaolovers #healthygifts⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing

Through ceremonial cacao, we've developed a deeper connection to the plant & imaginal realms. Plants are our oldest medicine, and for many in the western world that have grown up with allopathic medicine as our standard, it can require a shift in perspective to open to the healing available to us by working with plants.⁠ ⁠ And the wonderful thing about plants is that you can learn from them for free, simply by stepping outside and going for a walk😃. The best place to start is by learning about the local ecology where you live, you will likely be surprised at the treasure trove of healing that exists right outside your doorstep!⁠ ⁠ Has cacao helped you connect with other plants? 🌿We'd love to hear!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📷@Allison.roe01#plantlove #wildharvest #localecology⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing

We are grateful to the cacao tree for helping us bridge across culture & place to create authentic heart connections with so many around the globe.⁠ ⁠ A big part of our mission is to encourage people to build a relationship with cacao as a plant spirit and shift out of a consumption-based relationship viewing chocolate as candy. The commodity cacao industry is doing a lot of harm to our planet and indigenous communities, and we hope that our posts encourage us all to be more mindful about where our chocolate comes from.⁠ ⁠ This photo is from a cacao ceremony with the Chivite community in the Alta Verapaz region of Guatemala, where our Glowing Guatemala cacao is grown. First, we enjoyed fresh cacao paste they made from their beans that day, and then we made a batch of the Guatemalan cacao discs that we make. It was special to bring the cacao full circle, sharing it with the people that tend the trees with such love and care.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ #glowingguatemala #guatemalancacao #guatemaya⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing

Did you know that cacao is one of the most pharmacologically complex plant substances known to humans? Depending on the cacao, it has 300-1200 individual constituents meaning that a cacao tree growing next to avocados and bananas can have a totally different flavor profile than one growing near cardamom & ginger.⁠ ⁠ Just like there are wine connoisseurs that go wine tasting, there are chocolate connoisseurs who have attuned their palette to the different flavor profiles in different cacaos. Here we are tasting some of the delicious organic Guatemalan cacaos in our visit this spring. The flavors vary based on the soil content, the climate each harvest, and many other variables.⁠ ⁠ We believe that having high quality delicious cacao is an important part of making ceremonial cacao! <3 ⁠ ⁠ Thanks to @cacaoverapaz for showing us around and giving us so many samples of your delicious cacao!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ 📷@elsarhae#glowingguatemala #guatemalancacao #altaverapaz⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing

"I use my Firefly Ceremonial Cacao first thing in the morning by whisking it into my favourite coffee while setting my intention for the day. As a Residential Support Worker to two challenging clients, I need my heart Chakra open; compassion flowing, seratonin pumping.⁠ ⁠ I've found the ceremony of that morning quiet time, making the drink, thinking about how I want the day to unfold, how I can be present in each moment, taking those first amazing sips, grounds me. I spend some time sipping and meditating, being grateful for the opportunity to Give, living my purpose.⁠ ⁠ I choose Firefly for the same reason I buy my veggies at the farmer's market; supporting small, independent farms, feeding families not corporations, keeping tradition alive.

🌿Nature Lover Cacao Ritual🌿⁠ Make your cacao and put it into a thermos, and then find a quiet spot in nature. You can start by offering a bit of cacao to a tree🌲 or plant nearby as a symbol of gratitude.⁠ ⁠ You can sip your cacao as you walk, inviting a sense of openness as you notice the colors 🍁around you, observing animals 🐿️that cross your path, and any scents from local flora. You may find that your perception is expanded, and a sense of ease imbues your being.⁠ You can also find a 'sit-spot' and sit, sipping your cacao and observing nature for 15 minutes. So simple, yet drinking cacao in nature is one of the most healing rituals we practice!⁠ ⁠ Have you enjoyed cacao in nature recently?

In our recent newsletter, we shared about a new process we recently discovered for making EVEN BETTER tasting cacao!⁠ ⁠ Instead of roasting the whole raw cacao beans and then cracking & winnowing them to remove the shell and turn them into cacao nibs, we are now flipping the entire process. First we crack & winnow the raw beans to have raw cacao nibx to work with. Then we roast the nibs!⁠ ⁠ This may seem like a subtle change, but it has had major benefits. The cacao nibs retain more of the cacao butter this way, we can roast 25% more nibs at a time in our oven making our energy use more efficient, and the flavor profiles are even more consistent and delicious than before (which says a lot!)⁠ ⁠ Here's a behind the scenes shot of our new winnower which we are very proud of :) ⁠ ⁠ Any other chocolate makers out there that love geeking out on process improvements?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ #smallbatch #winnower #chocolatefactory⁠ #smallfarmers #sustainablefarming #directtrade #cacaostewardship #fireflychocolate #thecacaolife #cacao #ceremonialcacao #cacaoceremony #chocolatemaker #smallbusinesslove #healthychocolate #plantmedicine #healthyhotchocolate #cacaolovers #vegan #organic #plantbased #paleo #veganchocolate #purecacao #cacaopaste #unsweetenedchocolate #drinkingchocolate #cacaoritual #healyourself #healing
