Molinillo – There are a variety of ways to prepare and drink chocolate in Mexico, as well as numerous brands that provide the most exquisite chocolate products, such as Abuelita, Ibarra, Don Gustavo and many others. Most commonly, hot chocolate is drunk in a cup with a thick layer of foam. This is a tradition that was inherited to Mexico by the Aztecs and Spaniards. The natives created the foam by pouring chocolate from one cup to another, until the creation of the Molinillo during Colonial times in the 1700s. A Molinillo is made from a single piece of turned wood; that is rotated between two hands; the twisting motion froths the chocolate and creates the foam. Our Molinillos from La Mexicana are excellent tools to make traditional drinks such as atole, champurrado and hot chocolate.
