History of Cacao
Undoubtedly one of the world's most popular flavors, chocolate gets its finest attributes from the cacao bean. Prized by the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica, including the Olmecs and Aztecs, cacao was a well-guarded regional secret that was even used as currency until the Spanish arrived and eventually introduced chocolate to Europe. With its rich, robust taste and aroma, cacao has long been a revered presence in international food and drinks, with every culture putting its unique spin on the celebrated bean. Its intoxicating scent, which carries a full, earthy dark-chocolate fragrance, has made it a favorite for many aromatherapists.
