A Blend to Represent Unity
For a few years now, we’ve been offering our Sacred Elements Cacao Blends to represent the energies of the four classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water.
Now, we feel it’s time to invoke the fifth element—the uniting force of aether which represents the energy that connects all earthly things. As this element joins the physical elements together, so does the love of our community make Cacao Laboratory possible.
For this, we want to reach out to our community to help formulate the fifth piece in our Sacred Elements series: the Fifth Element Blend.
To do this, we will have a contest via Instagram that highlights submitted recipes and allows the community to vote on their favorites. If you might be game, read on!
The winner will receive a free monthly supply of Cacao (one 2.2 lb/1 kilogram block per month) for a whole year! Their first month’s supply will be sent out the following month after the winner is chosen.
Cacao Laboratory will create a new 5th Element Blend based on the winning recipe to be sold wherever Cacao Lab products are available.
The winner will also receive 13 tins of this new blend to give to their friends and family to try!
