When the Spanish Hernán Cortés and his men landed in Mexico, they did not like the bitter drink. To soften the “tchocoatl” they added sugar cream and vanilla. The “chocolate” then became the favorite drink of the settlers.
The cocoa tree grows naturally in three main areas of cultivation: Central America and South America for the finest beans Southern Africa and Southeast Asia.
