History of Cacao


With its 4000 years of history, it is an ancient plant used in important ceremonies in Central and South America.


The Mayans mix the ground cacao beans with water and pour it from one vessel to another to consume it as a thick foamy ceremonial drink which is called "ka'kau", chokola”.


In Latin, the cacao tree is called Theobroma cacao, which means "Food of the Gods".
