Jonas Ketterle makes ceremonial cacao in a traditional Mexican-inspired way.

Ora Cacao, formerly Firefly Chocolate, is a Sonoma County maker of ceremonial cacao.

Jonas Ketterle, Ora Cacao’s Founder & Chief Chocolatier, started selling 85% cacao bars in 2015, but before that he spent 3-1/2 years learning how to make chocolate in Oaxaca, Mexico, the traditional way, roasting at a low temperature.

Ora Cacao no longer makes bars (we miss their Bay Nut bars that used local bay laurel nuts Jonas would gather by hand), but remains committed to making cacao products that focus on the health aspects of chocolate. They use organic cacao from small family farms in Central America and Africa, and their ceremonial cacao is certified organic, sugar free, GMO free, soy free, keto, and vegan.

In addition to ceremonial cacao, Ora Cacao also offers Zoom cacao ceremonies, as well as bulk cacao, medicinal mushrooms, and cacao subscriptions.

Ora Cacao products are only available online.
