Mexican Cacao Traditions w/ Iris, Corazón de Cacao

Learn everything you need to know about the Mexican cacao traditions, how cacao production and rituals are passed down only among women, and why cacao is such an important plant in Mexico since the Mayan and Aztek times!

Iris from Corazón de Cacao in Oaxaca, Mexico, has been locally sourcing her cacao from an organic farm, and producing cacao since she learned it from her grandmother. She not only creates chocolate, cacao spreads, cacao as a drink, and snacks that she sells in her shop together with her daughter and son, but also rare cacao products with white cacao beans, called Patatxle, which make only 1% of the global cacao production. These beans are extremely rare to find, but even appear in the Popol Vuh, the Mayan’s book of creation.

Learn everything you need to know about the legends, the history, the production, the preparation, the rituals, and the ingredients that need to go into any cacao drink, to make it a potent and nourishing beverage.

The class is structured as an interview and set in Iris‘ shop in Oaxaca, where she shows you the original grinding stone that has been passed down through her maternal family lineage, the different types of beans, the cacao fruits, the materials to cook and prepare, the herbs, pictures from the farm, and much more.

It’s one of a kind. A female-owned small business that’s keeping the Mexican cacao tradition alive.
