Mankind has been intrigued with the cocoa bean since 1900 BC. In fact, our Mayan and Aztec ancestors believed the cocoa bean had magical, even divine, properties suitable for use in the most sacred rituals of birth, marriage and death.
By the 17th century, our European ancestors sweetened and lightened the taste of the cocoa bean, adding refined sugar and milk to chocolate.
Soon chocolate became a fashionable drink throughout Europe, with many proclaiming it’s nutritious, medicinal, and even aphrodisiacal properties. It is rumoured that Casanova was especially fond of the side effects that came with its seductive taste. Chocolate remained largely a privilege of the rich, until the invention of mass production in the late 1700s. Since then, the process has remained largely unchanged.
