It is assumed that the name “chocolate” comes from the word “chocolatl” the language of the Aztecs – “xococ” – bitter and “atl” – water or drink.
The Aztecs associated chocolate with Shochiketsal which is the goddess of fertility of the woman. Maya also associate it with fertility. Creating a chocolate begins with the collection of ripe fruit of the cocoa tree.
They are cut off from the tree with machetes, opened and are scraped off the cocoa beans, which were left for several days to ferment and is then spread out in the open air for 5-7 days to dry.
The dried cocoa beans are cleaned and baked, after which the kernels are broken into small pieces and ground in a stone mill, oil is separated from them, and the mass becomes “chocolate liquor”.
Once hardened, it becomes a bitter chocolate which is used for cooking, and then was transferred to chocolate factories which create different types of chocolate.
To the chocolate liquor is added to the sugar and other ingredients depending on the type of chocolate that will be made.
