Maya Hot Chocolate is made from stone-ground Tabasqueño cacao beans, delicately spiced with ancho chilli, allspice berries and annatto seeds.The Mayas were cultivating cacao over 4000 years ago. Our recipe, inspired by them and based on the ingredients that would have been available to them at the time. The Tabasqueño bean, grown in the Selva Zoque in Southern Mexico, is a wild hybrid of the ancestral Criollo bean. We combine these fruity beans with ancho chilli to add gentle heat and dried fruit flavours. Allspice berries add a hint of cinnamon and clove, while annatto seeds impart a warm reddish colour and earthy note.Enjoy this hot chocolate knowing that the cacao is sourced by Agrofloresta, an organization that has social, economic and environmental positive impacts.bean variety: Tabasqueño - wild hybrid of ancestral criollo cacaogrown by: Zoque and Tzotzil communitiestowns/ region: Cerro Blanco, Zunu, Patastal in the Selva Zoque, Mexicofermented by: Agrofloresta in Teapa, Tabasco, Mexico Agrofloresta causes: conserve cacaos, help farmers, preserve cultures, protect animals, save rainforestsAll products in the lever tins are 100% recyclable in household bins.
Jon Darby left his previous job in the city of London to live in Oaxaca and investigate the world of agave after a life-changing holiday in southern Mexico where he was blown away by mezcal, the skill of its production and the cultural significance of the maguey plant.He founded Sin Gusano (without the worm), which is a project working for the wider understanding and preservation of artisanal agave distillates – traditionally known as “Mezcal” – as well as the sustainable development of rural, mezcal producing regions of Southern Mexico.Jon spends a huge amount of time on the road in Mexico, meeting many different mezcal producers, seeking out the most delicious and diverse agave spirits to offer a continual evolution of limited releases. Somewhere between 35-150 litres is generally all that’s been made of each of their unique batches.Sin Gusano has pledged to gift 10% of profits to charitable causes. They aim to spread their giving between education programs and sustainability projects in Oaxaca, Mexico, and projects closer to home in London. They also are proud to be a carbon-neutral enterprise, offering a certified carbon neutral product.Reviews:'Sin Gusano is sourcing the tiny and unrepeatable batches that real mezcal culture is all about"Thomas Bullock, author of The Mezcal Experience'SinGusano has the most diverse and interesting bottlings found in Europe.
