Raw Chocolaterie

Food of the Gods – on the island of the Gods…

Today’s mainstream chocolate is filled with preservatives, processed dairy, chemicals, additives, and fat. This is the reason why chocolate has a guilty reputation of something sweet and seductive yet wrong for our health. When one is addicted to chocolate candy bars, it is usually the chemicals that a person is addicted too, not the chocolate itself.

Alchemy’s RAW chocolate, on the other hand, is PURE cacao powder mixed with healthy ingredients such as cold pressed coconut oil, vanilla beans, palm sugar and cacao butter. When put together – alchemical magic is created.

At Alchemy, we believe that in order to eat the best food ever, one must use the best ingredients. We use the highest quality local and organic cacao and coconut products from Bali’s Big Tree Farms, raw organic honey from Java, and cold-pressed coconut oil for our chocolate concoctions.

Our chocolate varieties change over time so usually every month there is a new addition to our enchanting chocolate collection!

 

Elena Says:

Chocolate making is pure Alchemy – magic in the kitchen. In many ways, our kitchen has become a sorcerer’s chocolate magic citadel. For us, chocolate making is a type of ancient meditation – gathering all the ingredients and making the preparations; slowly stirring the chocolate goodness in the bowl; experimenting with recipe scrolls. 

Slowly we melt the cacao butter and watch the white pieces disappear in a pot of aromatic thick golden liquid. We measure cups of cacao powder while holding our breath as if not to spill the gentle goodness with our excited breathing.  Gently and carefully, we open the moist fresh vanilla pods to extract the aromatic seeds from within. Small bowls of nature’s sweeteners await us on the table – fresh raw honey from the island of Java, raw gooey palm nectar, snow-white stevia, and crunchy palm sugar.

Our workspace, our magic tower, is surrounded by shelves with Mason jars filled with goji berries, carob powder, hazelnuts, sugary raisins, maca, dried bananas, and soaking cashews.  On the table lie tiny bowls of orange zest, chai spices, ginger root, and red chilies. Chalices filled with cold pressed coconut oil, fresh almond and coconut milk await their turn for testing. The air is filled with an aroma of gentle vanilla, spicy cinnamon, bee pollen, and warm cacao butter.  We mix, add more, stir slowly, taste, inhale the aroma and taste again. It is a long careful process. It is a chocolate dance permeating through every cell of your body. It is a shamanic tale of chocolate love making. The stereo is playing mantra music and there is an incense burning at our small altar with a Tibetian singing bowl greeting the chocolate creations with a vibrational blessing before they exit our kitchen on their journey to you.”

“Everybody knows what chocolate is. It has found its way into every corner of the globe. Chocolate is the best food ever. It is the food of the gods. Chocolate is good and healthy for you. Pure cacao, of course, is the best ever.”

David Wolfe, America’s leading nutrition guru

Why Raw Chocolate is Awesome

  • Happy Heart Vibe: It is a fantastic # 1 source of heart-supporting magnesium. Magnesium helps to regulate heartbeat and blood pressure. When your heart is happy – then so are you!
  • Brain Food: It is an extraordinary brain nourisher and helps to balance brain chemistry.
  • Party On: Cacao assists with emotional and biochemical support by enhancing creativity, optimism, and joy. Remember Willy Wonka’s chocolate loving character?
  • Chillax: Raw chocolate is abundant in antioxidants which keep us resistant to every-day stress
  • Chocolate Healing: Cacao has been used as universal medicine for thousands of years dating back to ancient civilizations where raw cacao was valued more than gold
  • Smooth & Silky: Cacao Butter is incredibly nourishing for the skin. And have you tried chocolate body scrubs and face masks?
  • Stimulate: Chocolate is nature’s  anti-depressant. It is filled with serotonin, dopamine and phenylethylamine – three of the well-studied neurotransmitters which help alleviate depression. It is an excellent mood elevator! Filled with “love chemicals” chocolate is a natural and the oldest aphrodisiac known to man.
  • Cellulite-Free: Pure cacao decreases appetite and thus leads to weight loss. That’s why most diet products on the market contain cacao. There is a misperception that chocolate is fattening. In truth, the fats in raw chocolate come from cocoa butter and these are healthy obesity-free, super-model friendly fats.
  • Beauty: RAW Cacao is high in the beauty mineral “sulfur”. Sulfur builds strong nails and hair, promotes beautiful skin, detoxifies the liver, and supports healthy pancreatic functioning.
  • Save the World: Chocolate will make you laugh! Laughter will save the planet one chocolate bon-bon at a time.
  • Pain Relief: It naturally soothes menstruation pains (the reason why women intuitively crave chocolate during their menses)

Food for Thought:

“If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellow in a glowing exultation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up [the] next morning with a  clear head and an undamaged constitution – then, if seems to me, all of our problems would be wholly solved and the earth would become paradise.”

Aldous Huxley (1894 – 1963)
