I LOVE CHOCOLATE. I love its diversity—how there’s delicate, nuanced chocolate that makes me sit and ponder, and how there’s uncomplicated chocolate doped with nuts that satisfies my craving for crunch.

There, Aztecs reveled all night—feasting, dancing, and drinking chocolate laced with cinnamon, anise, pepper, and orange blossoms. Legend has it that the warrior Montezuma consumed fifty chalices of the brew before attending to his harem of wives. History has not recorded their reactions.

A civilization earlier, the Mayans popularized drinking chocolate, sometimes spiked with achiote, which would stain the drinker’s lips blood-red. But the first humans to consume cacao were the Mokaya, a group of fishers and farmers who lived in what is now Mexico’s Chiapas state between 1900 and
