Delicious to eat or drink!

In Oaxaca, Mexico, and other Central and South American regions, chocolate has historically been enjoyed as a beverage. Cacao is ground into a paste, mixed with water and spices, and served hot.

Enjoy our Mexican-style hot chocolate in a nice big taza... the Spanish word for "cup"!
