CHOCLATL is a return to the purest, oldest, most delicious form of chocolate. For thousands of years chocolate was only ever made as a drink. We have rediscovered the taste by using pure ingredients in the traditional way.

Chocolate comes from beans of the Theobroma Cacao tree, grown at a certain altitude in regions near the equator and in the shade of a taller tree. The beans are picked, fermented, roasted and ground much like good coffee. This is then conched and tempered for days at a time. All in all, it is a ludicrously complex process to get chocolate from a bean growing on a tree. But it is worth it! Chocolate can be addictive to those with sensitive taste buds, it is ten times higher in anti-oxidants than red wine, and releases serotonin, the feel good hormone, among many other health benefits.

However, what we taste today in the form of chocolate and chocolate drinks, has very little in common with the original chocolate discovered by the Mayans and then the Aztecs thousands of years ago. It was a drink that successive civilisations declared as food of the gods.

The Spanish conquistadores of South America discovered the Aztecs trading cacao beans in place of money, as did the Mayans before them. 20 beans bought you a chicken! They saw Montezuma and other royalty drinking hot chocolate, up to 50 cups a day, and they decided to bring chocolate back to the old world. Hot chocolate drinking became established in the royal courts of Spain, then Italy and then England. In the 1650’s the first hot chocolate drinking café opened in London. They were eventually replaced by tea shops as the trade grew between the British Empire, China and India. Ultimately, these became the coffee shops we now see today.

The demand for chocolate grew and the production process became industrialised. The quality and purity of the original product all but disappeared. Chocolate, and in particular drinking chocolate, is one of the most processed foods available now.
