Cold Packed Shipping
Cost is per shipment
If you are in an extreme heatwave, when temperatures will reach high 90's or even into the 100's, we suggest adding it to the Ceremonial Cacao Bar or delaying your order.
We'll add cold packs & insulation to your shipment to increase the chance it will arrive without any melting. The cold packs are non-toxic & reusable.
Please note that we cannot guarantee the powder & minibars won't melt when temperatures exceed 85° without the cold packed shipping option.
We will ship cold-packed orders Monday through Thursday, to avoid packages sitting around over the weekend in the heat.
Alternatively, consider ordering when local temperatures are lower or ordering the 1lb Ceremonial Cacao Bar during warmer months.
I previously wrote a review praising the bright, fruity flavor of this cacao.. and I neglected to mention the wonderful packaging and shipping.
I ordered 5 bars to ship cold-packed, and they arrived cool indeed. Not only was the shipping box well taped and secured, the bars themselves are wrapped with much care in beautiful golden paper, plus plastic wrap to keep them fresh. I was very impressed!
Thank you for facilitating many lovely morning cacao experiences to come.
I have had the good fortune of purchasing my ceremonial cacao from Heart Blood for many years. The quality is of the highest degree. I have found the connection to the earth that this plant medicine holds is a gentle gateway to Source. A family owned business, the service and attention to their customers is unsurpassed.
With every order I have received magnificent quality cacao and a special thank you note. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for quality cacao!

I had the excellent pleasure of trying Heartblood Cacao over at a friend's house recently and enjoyed it immensely. We have since had it may times and have decided to do a Cacao dieta for the month of July. So, of course, I had to go straight to Heatblood and get my own supply! Purchasing from a great small buisness, with awesome personalized customer service, and that is also very earth conscious is important to me and Heartblood is definitely all of those things!
I purchased both the solid bar type of cacao and a couple bags of 1 lb cacao paste. The pre-crumbled paste is perfect for faster preparation in the mornings or for adding a little to a breakfast smoothie, as well as, making for less cleanup after preparation. The act of cutting up the cacao block is a magical part of any ceremony- especially in the evening while you prepare a meditative relaxing cup- so I couldn't go without purchasing the bars as well! The Heartblood cacao bars shave very satisfyingly easy
and smoothly with the use of a good, sharp knife.
As for taste, the cacao is extremely smooth with the perfect nutty and earththy bitterness a good cacao should have. I prepare my cacao with a little honey, cayenne pepper, ginger and cinnamon- the flavor and feeling is indescribable.
I will definitely not be going anywhere else for my cacao needs!
