Dream House Capomo Cafe/Capomo Flour
The Dream House is located in San Francisco, forty kilometers north of Puerto Vallarta in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. Our healing center, established in 2006, was initially dedicated to the use of the medicinal plants of West Central Africa but over time has expanded to include Nayarit's indigenous plants. Capomo is a favorite, remarkable because of its delicious flavor, a rarity in the category of the mostly bitter medicinals.
The majestic Capomo tree, also known as the Maya Nut Tree, is referred to as the "guide tree" as it is the tallest tree in the tropical rainforest of this region. The Capomo nut is organic and wild-harvested and much higher in nutrition than maize (corn) grown on farmed soils. The Capomo Cafe is caffeine free and the Capomo Flour is gluten free. Both have a rich earthy and somewhat chocolatey taste and are extremely high in Vitamins A, E, C, and B. as well as Calcium, Potassium, Folate, Iron, Zinc, Protein, and Fiber.
It is important to understand that the Mayan civilization existed prior to the cultivation of maize (corn). The Mayans ingested capomo/maya nut as a beverage and ate it as an ingredient in their food much like the modern Mexican culture uses maize. Because maize could be easily cultivated and processed, the use of the labor intensive capomo/maya nut began to decline. Like many of nature's most nutritious foods, capomo has now become a "forgotten food." Many of the young in our Mexican community have never tasted capomo.
We are privileged to be aligned with one of the elders of our Mexican community, Juana Borrayo, a fourth generation capomo ranchera who has produced capomo cafe on her ranch for more than forty years. She is a wealth of information on the health benefits of capomo and her particular blend is our absolute favorite. Capomo is an immune booster and is well known for its ability aid the body to relax. It is beneficial to the heart, lungs, kidneys, and reproductive organs. It is well known in Mexico as an aid for mother's who need to increase lactation, as an aphrodisiac, as a remedy for asthma, high blood pressure, and kidney problems.
We are excited to enter into business with Juana and her five daughters. Capomo Cafe and Capomo Flour are high in nutrition, delicious in taste, ecologically sound, and have a long shelf life.
