The origin of chocolate
The chocolate that is made through the cocoa beans has been consumed for thousands of years by humans. Theobroma cacao is the scientific name by which the cocoa tree is known, which means "Tree of the gods" in Greek. According to several historians, the Olmecs were the first civilization to elaborate a beverage reserved only for sacred rituals carried out by priests, nobles and kings, using cocoa beans, according to which it provided wisdom and energy to those who took it. This civilization developed mainly during the Preclassic period of Mesoamerica, a region that covers most of Central America. After them different cultures of the pre-Columbian era adopted this mysterious drink in their most sacred rituals like the Aztecs.
With the arrival of Christopher Columbus in America, the cocoa-based beverage was improved by adding sugar and other ingredients, thus preparing for the first time what is now known as chocolate. Consumed at the beginning as a hot drink and only for the highest class of Spanish society, which soon expanded to the rest of Europe. Over the years there were improvements in the recipe by chocolatiers until they made the current chocolate.
