The Aztecs of Central America were among the first to encounter the cocoa bean, learn of its unique properties and introduce it to the world. Native to Central America, the cacao is found on a perennial tree and the fruit is elongated in shape. When ripe, it becomes a reddish colour, and can contain one to forty cocoa beans. The bitter extract of cocoa beans is traditionally blended with crushed chili pepper and cardamom to make "Xoco latl." The result is a perfect elixir for the palate, considered to be the “food of the gods,” and supposedly gave the gods the strength of power and knowledge. It is for this reason that Montezuma, the last of Aztec’s kings, drank more than fifty cups of it a day.
