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.
Add a personalised inscription to your Jicara with the name of your loved one.
To complete your Mexican Cacao Experience meet our characters. Premium, vegan & organic.
