Coco beans were brought to Spain by Christopher Columbus after 1502. In 1519, Spanish Conquistadores arrived in Mexico and got the chance to taste the Chocolate beverage prepared by the Aztecs. They used to keep the pods of coco beans in the sun to dry and the beans used to get fermented. Broken seeds used to be roasted on a slow fire and ground to a paste, which were dried into small cakes. Amazingly they knew the use of flavours like vanilla and other spices along with herbs and corns. Later these cakes were used to be broken up and mixed with hot water and then beaten into a foamy substance called Xocoatl (which means "Bitter water"). It reached Italy in 1606.
