In this podcast, Erik Westerduin from Pure Kakaw offers insight into how anyone can enjoy pure cacao as a sacred drink — including if you want to amplify the effects of microdosing.
ABOUT OUR GUEST
Amsterdam local Erik Westerduin and his partner Leonie want to introduce people to high-quality ceremonial cacao in its purest form. Their company Pure Kakaw is the result of their fascination of the effects that cacao has on our body and mind. Erik loves the jungle, complex ecosystems and searching high-quality cacao at agroforestry farms. For him, a cacao drink does not start with the beans, but the soil and ecosystem where it grows.
