The smooth and velvety flavor of hot chocolate is the taste of comfort itself, which is why it has maintained its universal appeal, starting with the ancient Mesoamerican civilizations and continuing throughout history. Italian chocolatiers created the first modern hot chocolate, or cioccolata calda, a simple mixture of chocolate, sugar, and milk which quickly became as popular as espresso.
