Description

Looking for something different, personal and authentic? Surprise and delight your loved one on their special day.

We put together the oldest known tradition of preparing Hot Chocolate, sharing the colour, flavour and folklore of Mexican culture. Given the credits to the Mesoamerican cultures:  Mayan, Aztec and Olmec.

Our evidence comes with the artisan wooden whisker called “Molinillo”. The experience starts when you hold the Molinillo between your palms and rotate by rubbing the palms together; this rotation creates the froth in the drink. 

“Sin chocolate no hay molinillo, y sin molinillo no hay chocolate”

Frido says: The resulting foam was the most desirable part for the Maya civilization. In  Mexico you could buy only the Froth of the chocolate as a drink. Delicioso!!

Our next source is the “Jicara”, a small container made from the Calabash Tree. This container was the first used to drink Cacao. Available in a variety of designs; in a natural and smoked option. 

You could personalise your Jicara with the name of your loved one.

To complete your Mexican Cacao Experience meet our characters. All of them are premium, vegan & organic.  

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN EACH GIFT BOX:

  • Molinillo
  • Jicara
  • 1x Mexican Chocolate
  • 1x Middle Red
  • 1x Great Dark
  • 1x Frido Soul

 

Enjoy, and travel to the place where the myths of chocolate drinks never ends.

How to make it

Bring 220mLs of water to a light simmer (60°C). Combine 2-3 tablespoons (20-30g) of your Mexican Chocolate or 1 Frido Cacao coin with your water into a tall vessel.

To prepare your cacao 

Traditionally
Insert the molinillo and begin to roll the handle back and forth between your palms to combine the mixture. Continue until a creamy foam develops at the surface.

The Modern Way
Carefully blend your mixture with a stick blender for around 2 minutes until creamy and foamy at the surface.
