Cacao was already growned by the Mayans more than 2500 years ago.
The Aztecs learned of the Mayans about farming and the use of cacao. The cacao was called “cacahuat”; the aromatic beverage obtained from its fruits was called “xocolatl”. Back then, the “xocolatl” was appreciated as a restorative that gave strength and woke up sexual appetite.
In the Empire Aztec, Moctezuma received part of their taxes in cacao seeds, because their seeds were used as coins. As a beverage, Moctezuma received annually 400,000 countles, equivalent to 160 million cacao berries, useful for 50 daily cups of chocolate, for personal consumption.
Cacao seeds were also used as coins, habit that lasted long after the Spanish colonization. In fact, Hernan Cortes paid his soldiers with cacao.
