The Olmec’s, one of the most significant pre-Hispanic civilizations that lived from 1500 to 1400 B.C. in Mexico, were the first to taste the cacao beans in the form of a beverage, in which they mixed them with water and species, peppers, herbs. They were the ones who began the cultivation of cacao in Mexico.
Throughout the centuries, the culture of cacao spread over the Mayan and Aztec populations. The cacao bean was then used as currency and as a unit of measurement.
