*On dosage, due to the stimulating and rich nature ofcacao, we recommend starting with 20g ofcacao per person and working up from there (60g is a full ceremonial dose).
**On sweeteners,cacao is naturally bitter and rich so it’s best to keep the properties of these recipes as natural as possible, that is not adding too much sweetener to override the flavours of thecacao. If you aren’t used to the strong bitterness ofcacao, a little natural sweetener can take the edge off, but otherwisecacao can be consumed without any sweetener too.
