Cocoa comes from the fruit of a tree of the same name, originally from Mesoamerica (southern half of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua.. among others). Today, there is virtually no region in the world where its existence is not known. It has been used in religion, politics, gastronomy and even as a currency by the Mayans. The Spanish introduced it to Europe after the colonization of America, modifying its original recipe by adding sugar and a hint of cinnamon, which led to widespread social acceptance. It wasn't until the end of the 19th century that it began to be consumed not only as a drink, but also in solid form.
