Guatemala, home of chocolate ...
As you know, chocolate comes from the Americas, since Native Americans were already consuming the chocolate drink whose recipe was brought to Europe by early colonists. Guatemala and its immediate neighbors, Mexico, Belize, El Salvador and Honduras form a large part of central America. The name Guatemala comes from the Native American "nashuatl Cuauhtèmallàn" which translates to "place full of trees". For the Maya, as for the Aztecs, these trees were in fact cocoa trees. Cocoa is still part of the national economy today, along with exports of sugar, coffee and bananas.
... and Criollo cocoa beans
As a chocolate lover you know that there are different varieties of cocoa beans with different characteristics. The most prized one is Criollo, which is found in Guatemala and Mexico. This variety has an incredible aromatic power and very little bitterness. Decreed the world's best cocoa by specialists, Criollo is attractive to many artisanal chocolatiers. However, currently production is being affected by smaller yields because of aging cocoa plantations and violent storms that have had a negative impact on flowering. The local market has also been developing in recent years and local traditions are reflected in the museum in Antigua that is dedicated to chocolate.
