It is believed that the first people to cultivate the tree were the Olmecs, who lived on the South coast of Mexico around 600BC. At that time the beans were so valuable that they were often traded as currency, and cultivation was limited in order to preserve their value.

The crop was initially traded around Central and Northern America, where it landed in the hands of the Aztecs. Today’s modern version of hot chocolate stems from their traditional recipe of roasting and crushing the beans, then mixing the resulting paste with water.
