Mesoamerican Drinking Chocolate

These Kakawa chocolate wafers/balls are representative of the first historic form of chocolate. The Mesoamericans including the Mayan's & Aztecs, made chocolate mixed with various spices into wafers, bricks or balls for easy storage and travel Typically, they used the chocolate wafers/balls when they wanted hot chocolate. The chocolate wafers/balls offered by Mark are his closest historical recreations to date of what these peoples were making and drinking. These chocolate drinks are based upon Pre-Columbian anthropological and historic culinary information.

Each wafer/ball makes a 6 to 7 oz demitasse drink. These are sold in packages of 3.

I am an espresso drinker, and don't drink coffee...thus I sometimes crave that afternoon kick when high up some steep and cold iced up waterfall....I hate milk chocolate or your typical American/Euro brand hot chocolate, way too sweet for me....I tried my first true "drinking" chocolate at Whole Foods and am now hooked...in fact I don't even miss my morning espresso if I can sip on this all day from my thermos....perfect with hot water, milk would ruin it in my opinion....tons of options at your local organic store I am sure...these guys are out of Santa Fe
