It is said that Kuna Indians drink up to 40 cups of a cocoa drink a week, how do they prepare this drink and what are the ingredients? Does anyone know the answer to this question, please
While I do not know exactly how the Kuna Indians do it, I have been intrigued by the benefits attributed to their cocoa based drink and have begun to experiement using raw cacao (cocoa) beans and my grind and brew coffee maker. I found some good, reasonably priced, raw, organic, cocoa beans on Amazon (brand is Live Superfoods). I mixed them half/half with some regular whole coffee beans and put them in my coffee maker's grinder and let it grind and brew just like I would whole coffee beans. It's blander than pure coffee, but it's still pretty good sweetened with some stevia (and milk added, if you prefer). I have yet to try it with only cocoa beans. I think it would be better if allowed to brew longer. I think the best way to do so would be to grind the cacao beans and prepare like coffee in a French press coffee maker (just brewed a bit longer before straining). Good luck!
