Luxury Hot Chocolate
As well as having intrinsic calming properties, hot chocolate was actually frequently used as a stomach and liver remedy up to the 19th century. While many drinks found today are no longer as cocoa-rich as those of the past, drinking high-quality hot chocolate is scientifically proven to be good for the stomach. All of the hot chocolate drinks we offer at Iron and Fire are of the highest quality with substantial cocoa content. Delicious, easy to use, and practical, what are you waiting for?

The History of Hot Chocolate
Originating in Mexico with the Mayans as early as 500BC, hot chocolate was around long before any of the sophisticated brewing techniques we might see being used today. At that point in time, hot chocolate probably wasn’t the right name for the drink they had created as the combination of water, cocoa seeds, chilli peppers, and oatmeal was completely cold. It wasn’t until the 1500s when the drink made its way to Spain that hot chocolate actually became hot and with the departure of chilli peppers from the recipe, it had now become far more soothing (and likely palatable) The last piece of the puzzle came into place in the 1700s when hot chocolate started becoming trendy in London. At this point, chocolate was still very expensive and thus hot chocolate was only available to the wealthy. It wasn’t until the president of the Royal College of Physicians imported a recipe from Jamaica that detailed mixing milk with hot chocolate that the concoction started to garner commercial success with people of all different social standing.
Today, hot chocolate is a global phenomenon with millions around the globe drinking it daily. Some restaurants and cafes have actually gone even further and created their own hot chocolate recipes offering them to clients as part of their extended menu. Finding a hot chocolate café isn’t all that rare these days and at Iron and Fire, we are all for the growing popularity of this iconic drink!
