5 Chili Bomba Drinking Chocolate (70% cacao)
24-Square Bar Drinking Chocolate (135g)
70% cacao content
This spicy drink honours the sacred and traditional fusion of chillies and cacao. We grind achiote to add flavour and a beautiful red hue that gives this chocolate its crimson colour and provocative name.
Ingredients: roasted cacao nibs, raw cane sugar, achiote, chilies, allspice, sea salt.
How to make our drinking chocolate:
- Blender Add 6 squares of chocolate to 8oz of hot water, blend for one minute.
- Stovetop Bring 8oz of water to a boil, add 6 squares of chocolate and stir continuously until chocolate is melted and blended into the water.
- Tips: try making our drinks with coffee for an energizing mocha, or your choice of milk for a dependently rich chocolate con leche!
We are a business and social enterprise transforming cacao, the food of the gods, into small-batch, bean-to-bar, artisanal dark chocolate. The concept of ChocoSol was originally founded in 2004 in Oaxaca, Mexico, by Michael Sacco, and has been based in Toronto since 2006. The origin of our name has links to 3 languages: English, Spanish, and French. ‘Sol’ is from the Spanish word for ‘sun’ and refers to our first 1,000 kilograms of cacao that were roasted with solar power in Oaxaca. In French, ‘sol’ means soil, acknowledging that you must have the soil of the gods in order to have the food of the gods. In English ‘soul’ reminds us of the importance of conducting our work with a good mind and spirit.
