The legend

It was the Maya, the first to “invent” a hot drink enhanced by the intense flavor of the seed widely cultivated in Latin America since ancient times. The drink, renamed xocoatl, had a bitter and spicy taste, made from the mixture of cocoa, beans, water and a pinch of pepper. Highly appreciated, it was a delicacy consumed during festivals, and on special occasions. After the discovery of America in the late 15th century, cocoa made its debut in Europe. Legend has it that at the very first meeting, Aztec Emperor Montezuma II offered Spanish explorer Hernan Cortésuna “chocolatl,” made of cocoa, vanilla, and spices, which the emperor was fond of.
