This Tiny Shop In New Mexico Serves Drinking Chocolate To Die For

There’s nowhere else quite like Kakawa Chocolate House. While New Mexico has plenty of artisan chocolatiers, it’s much harder to find gourmet drinking chocolate. And I’m not talking about your grandma’s cocoa. Forget powdered mixes with mini marshmallows surfing on the surface. The drinking elixirs at Kakawa are something else entirely. If you told me that the nectar of the gods was served in one of Kakawa’s dinky blue and white teacups brimming with rich, liquid chocolate, I wouldn’t be disappointed.
