Cocoa

History has it that the Aztecs of Mexico used to drink a wonderful mixture
of blended cocoa, water and spices they called chocolate.

Once introduced to Europe, cocoa was mixed with milk to create the luscious chocolate we know today. It was said to be an aphrodisiac!

Cocoa is produced by roasting the beans and grinding the nibs of cacao tree pods. The fat – or cocoa butter – is then extracted.

Different varieties of chocolate are extracted from the beans of the cacao tree, according to their many origins:
The Caribbean, The West Indies, Mexico, Trinidad, Ecuador…

But let’s not forget that the cocoa bean is also a spice…

So why not use it as such?!
