Story, Folklore, History

Cacao trees are native to Central and South America. The Aztecs were some of the first recorded to consume chocolate as a beverage. Some sources say they called their hot beverage chocolate, it was consumed as a hot liquid with no sweetening ingredients, but instead with chili peppers to spice up the beverage. Their emperor was said to have drank 50 cups of chocolate each day! When discovered by Europeans, they found the drink to be far too bitter, and added cane sugar to sweeten the rich and bitter product.


Be careful not to infuse too long! The longer you steep, the spicier it gets. Start with 2-3 minutes and increase to taste if desired.
