Oaxaca Hot Chocolate is made from stone-ground Tabasqueño cacao beans, delicately spiced with cinnamon and almond.
The city of Oaxaca is located on an ancient chocolate trading route. Our recipe is inspired by their famous chocolate mills, where cacao beans, sugar, cinnamon and almonds are ground together to make a paste that is used in hot chocolate drinks and mole. The Tabasqueño bean, grown next door to Oaxaca, in the Selva Zoque in Southern Mexico, is a wild hybrid of the ancestral Criollo bean. We combine these fruity beans with the fragrant, soft bark of ‘true’ cinnamon to add a sweet, woody perfume and gentle flavour, while the almonds add a decadent creaminess.
Enjoy this hot chocolate knowing that the cacao is sourced by Agrofloresta, an organization that has social, economic and environmental positive impacts.
