Frido Cacao



Jicara Smoky


I am not a coconut. I am a traditional, handmade drinking vessel made from the fruit of a the Calabash tree.

Made in Mexico




For every truth, there is a vessel. For every drink, there is one too. From the earth comes the traditional cacao-drinking vessel of the Aztecs and Mayans, the Jicara.

Sourced direct from artisans in Mexico, each Jicara is completely one-of-a-kind, handmade in fair-trade conditions and absolutely true to the source, its history and origins. Available in a variety of designs; in a natural and smoked option.

The smoked Jicara imparts a distinctive scent and flavour into your cacao drink for a more intense cacao experience.

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 

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.
