Chocolate was first consumed as a spiced, bitter drink by Olmec, Mayan and Aztec peoples in Central and South America. After grinding the cacao with a stone, spices, chilis and cornmeal were added to the fermented cacao pulp mixture, which was then drunk for general vitality, health, and virility.
Our Spicy Xocoatl Sipping Cocoa mix is a blend of pure ground dark chocolate, deep dark Swiss cocoa powder, masa (corn), our own hand ground blend of spices, and the heat of locally grown chili pepper that melts smoothly when stirred into hot milk, vegan mylks, or coffee and espresso drinks. Since we use whole ground botanicals, some sediment at the bottom of the cup is natural.
Available seasonally during the cooler months.
12 oz. packaged in a handsome matte black or kraft recyclable tin-tie bag.
