Rich, hot ‘a la taza’ chocolate is a Spanish classic, perfect for dipping crispy churros and pastries! This super thick hot chocolate by Jolonch is made from oak wood roasted cocoa beans that are ground using antique stone mills, creating a deep flavor and silky texture. This attractive tin holds chocolate shavings that easily melt into simmering milk. In a few minutes you will be enjoying the most decadent hot chocolate we have ever tried!

For hundreds of years the Spanish have luxuriated with steaming hot cups of thick taza chocolate. Our friends at Jolonch began roasting and grinding chocolate beans all the way back in 1770! We visited their spotless factory where they use century old granite millstones and mixers. A little cinnamon is added, then each bar of chocolate a la taza is shaped and stamped by hand, then chilled in an antique wooden refrigerator. It was clear that they are serious about preserving this amazing tradition.

Chocolate a la taza is easy to make: add scoops of the shaved chocolate to milk simmering on the stove and stir until it thickens, then pour into a cup (taza means cup in Spanish). The thickness can be adjusted by the number of scoops you add. On average you should add 4 spoonfuls per cup of milk and in less than ten minutes you will be enjoying a delicious and decadent mug of hot chocolate!

      "This was a gift to a choco-holic cousin who discovered churros and chocolate when we were together on a trip to Spain. She delighted that it is shavings and not a powder. (She was also delighted to find "churros donuts" in her local market"-- so she has her source for a cinnamony bread to dunk!) We also sent her the bottles of the cold chocolate. So she is good to go, hot or cold. Thanks to La Tienda! Great peoplle; great service!"
