Source Information

Cacao had many uses and symbols among the ancient civilizations of Central and South America. Initially, cocoa beans were used as currency and then eventually made into a thick bitter drink called xocolatl consumed by the Aztec and Mayan elite. In the Mayan culture, cacao pods symbolized life and fertility cacao and was used in royal burials to ensure comfort in the afterlife.

Tea Processing

Native to the tropical region of the Americas, cacao means “food of the gods” in Latin. Every stage of cocoa production is done by hand: planting, irrigating, harvesting, roasting and drying.
