The Drinking chocolate dates back to the mystical rituals of the Mayans and the Aztecs. After the discovering of the “New world” the conquistadors are the first to bring it across the ocean to Europe. At first, the chocolate beverage was prepared without any sweetening, but soon people began adding sugar.
Thus, the classic recipe was born, which later turned into a desired drink of the royal courts across Europe.
Today, Casa Kakau’s drinking chocolate is made in the same way, from selected cocoa beans and brown cane sugar, as centuries ago when it was introduced to the royal courts across Europe.
