Introducing Ruk’u’x’Ulew - The Heart of the Earth Cacao
Welcome to the enchanting world of Ruk’u’x’Ulew, where the ancient wisdom of Mayan culture and the spirit of cacao intertwine. In San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala there is an indigenous women's collective, proud to bring you a truly special cacao experience. Allow us to share the story behind this wonderful artisanal Guatemalan grown ceremonial cacao.
Meaning 'Heart of the Earth' in their native language, Kaqchikel, Ruk’u’x’Ulew embodies the deep connection between nature, culture, and the nurturing power of cacao. Founded in 2016 by Cecilia Mendoza Chiyal, a devoted Mayan mother born and raised in San Marcos La Laguna, the collective has blossomed into a celebration of tradition, empowerment, and divine cacao.
Drawing inspiration from Cecilia's cherished family recipes and the highest quality cacao beans sourced from Alta Verapaz, Guatemala, they meticulously craft each batch of their premium ceremonial grade cacao. The process begins with the fermentation, sun-drying, and delicate hand-peeling of every bean. With reverence and care, the cacao beans are roasted to perfection, capturing the essence of their rich flavors. Finally, in small batches, the cacao is milled, ensuring every package exudes freshness and delight.
When you sip on Ruk’u’x’Ulew's cacao elixir, you are not merely indulging in a drink. You are immersing yourself in a sacred experience that transcends borders. This cacao has traveled from the shores of Lake Atitlan to find its way into the hearts and cups of enthusiasts worldwide.
Cecilia's journey, guided by the spirit of cacao itself, led her to discover the transformative power of this magical plant. What began as a desire to empower local women soon evolved into a flourishing collective employing fifteen remarkable souls. Through their dedicated work, each woman infuses the cacao with her own energy, love, and presence.
As Cecilia explains, "The cacao is a teacher for me, a loving project that we approach patiently and with intention. It brings calmness to the grandmothers who work with us, while the younger women embrace its creative essence. Together, we infuse every batch with the purest intentions and an abundance of love."
Witnessing the global impact of cacao, Cecilia's heart swells with joy. She feels a profound connection between people from different corners of the world, all drawn together by the spirit of this sacred plant. The light of cacao radiates its unique energy, igniting courage and fostering deep connections.
Ruk’u’x’Ulew, her beloved cacao business, bears its name as a testament to their devotion. In the ancient Kaqchikel language, it represents the 'Heart of the Earth,' honoring the Mayan heritage and symbolizing their belief in cacao as a divine embodiment of the Earth's essence.
