Honduras, the beginnings of cocoa for researchers
You probably know that cocoa came to us from the New World. Scientists state that the Ulua Valley in Honduras is where cocoa was discovered and they even found cups there used for Xocoatl. Cocoa also has an important place in the Maya and Aztec mythology, present in Central America. Cocoa beans were even used as currency, and a cocoa god appears around 1300 BC: Quetzalcoatl. As part of the legend, the god offered cocoa to the men, demonstrating its opulence. The invaders poisoned him, knocking Quetzalcoalt into madness. The latter then was lost at sea. The Aztecs then awaited the return of their god of cocoa ... in vain!
Honduras, producer of cocoa beans
Honduras is a country bordered by the Caribbean Sea and neighboring countries of Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador. Agriculture accounts for 22% of national wealth. As well as cocoa the country also grows sugar cane, corn, oranges and tobacco. Cocoa is an important product for the national economy in terms of exports. Each year, they export 40 tons of beans which go to Swiss processing plants. The turnover generated is approximately 1.5 million. The Hondurans produced cocoa bean is recognized by chocolatiers around the world due to its natural characteristics. This is for example the case of Guanaja cocoa 70%, particularly prized for its gourmet appearance.
