Oaxacan Molten Drinking Chocolate
Meet our Molten Drinking Chocolate, hot chocolate’s worldly, refined, bold, sophisticated cousin. Each 6 oz. variety has a unique provenance, reflected in the hand-selected ingredients used to architect our flavors. And like all our chocolates, every combination of ingredients, flavors, and aromas tells a unique story.
This blend brings chiles to the drinking chocolate party, warming the flavors and stirring the palate to attention with their signature prickle of heat. We chose pasilla and ancho chiles for their subtle and playful heat profiles. Each sip warms your mouth with a building spice flavor, paying homage to xocolatl— a ground cacao, chile, and water beverage that was invented by the ancient Olmec, Mayan, and Aztec cultures.
What makes drinking chocolate different from hot cocoa?
To put it simply: how the drink mix is made. The biggest distinction is a purer product. Our drinking chocolates are made of real chocolate instead of cocoa powder, which means they don't dissolve...they melt. This leads to a richer, warmer, thicker, more aromatic drinking experience. Hot cocoa usually relies on powdered milk, thickeners, stabilizers, and myriad other ingredients that we personally don’t love putting in our bodies, let alone our drinking chocolate.
Drinking chocolate is meant to be savored. Sink into your favorite chair with a warm mug of our Molten Drinking Chocolate and take a deep breath as the aroma of our superior cacao and spices envelops your senses.
