Mexico is renowned for its rich culinary heritage, with an abundance of delicacies to explore. In this particular journey, we will delve into the world of cacao. Our aim is to uncover the fascinating history and origins of human use of cacao, while also shedding light on the cultivation techniques and challenges involved. We will provide a comprehensive overview of the various species of cacao, and explore the intricate process of transforming it into chocolate. Additionally, we will delve into the diverse ways in which cacao is consumed in Mexico, beyond the familiar chocolate, which may be unfamiliar to many parts of the world. To achieve this, we plan to connect with cacao farmers and producers to document modern production practices and meet with archaeologists who can offer insight into the rituals surrounding this delicacy during different Mesoamerican civilizations.
