Making Chocolate Like The Mayas Used To

Making Chocolate Like The Mayas Used To | Just Chocolate!!! | Scoop.it

Great article.  Cyrilla's Chocolate is mentioned.  http://ecomayachocolate.com/

 

"The word cacao originated from the Maya word Ka’kau’, as well as the word chocolate from Chocol’ha and the verb chokola’j – 'to drink chocolate together.'

 

The Maya believed that the ka’kau’ was discovered by the gods in a mountain that also contained other delectable foods to be used by the Maya.

 

Since the cacao was revered as the drink of the gods, only the elite in the Maya society could afford to drink it. In addition, the cacao seeds were used as a form of currency, so only the wealthy had the pleasure of enjoying the delightful taste of chocolate."
