Hot Chocolate Machine

Hot Chocolate Machine Hot chocolate – aka cocoa, is a hot drink that usually contains shaved chocolate, melted chocolate buds or cocoa powder, heated milk or water and sugar. Drinking chocolate is similar to hot chocolate but is made from melted chocolate shavings or paste rather than a soluble powder mix. It is thought that the Mayans created the first chocolate beverage around 2000 years ago, and it was an essential part of Aztec culture by 1400 AD. The drink became popular in Europe after being introduced from Mexico, and is now drunk in across the world, created in many variations, from the powdered hot cocoa typically consumed in the UK and United States to the very thick cioccolata densa served in Italy, to the delicious staple breakfast beverage of the French. There are a variety of machines available for both the domestic and commercial market – from the simple glass hand powered mixer by Bodum – to state of the art catering machines capable of producing hundreds of cups an hour! with many hot chocolate machine brands to choose from.
