Splitting cocoa pods

Splitting cocoa pods

Description:

Splitting pods, from Historicus, Cocoa: All About It , 1896. Cocoa beans were used in the chocolate making process.

Cocoa, which was used to make chocolate, was grown on slave planations in the Caribbean and brought to Bristol for processing.

Chocolate was first used as a drink, sweetened with sugar to mask the bitter flavour of the chocolate. Later it was used for making eating chocolate. At this period, most people drank beer, wine or spirits. Water was not safe to drink, tea coffee and chocolate were expensive. Quakers promoted drinking chocolate as an alternative to alcohol.
