Quoth the CCoa:

“I understand you, that you prefer milk. But the bitterness of dark isn’t so oppressive, try just a bite. You may enjoy it.”

Kith Excerpt:

The Kingdom of Sweets today has Mint, Taffy, Licorice, and Cinnamon aplenty- but Chocolate remains the most beloved and most powerful of flavor profiles. The CCoa are the embodiment of that flavor, as well as the changes that have made to it throughout the years. Yet their origins are are older than the city and lie in prehistory.

Mythology posits that shortly after the birth of mortals, created from sweet-corn as the mortals were, Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent brought them a gift. This gift was found in a far-off land of sweet and holy things, and the newly formed mortals were blessed to receive it. The Gift was chocolate, and that far-off land may or may not have been the realm which became San Azúcar. If it was, and none are quite sure, than the indigenous people of that far-off land were the CCoa.

Despite their antediluvian heritage, if it be true, the CCoa have easily transmogrified throughout the centuries, reinterpreting themselves on a scale that covers the globe. Now the CCoa happily exist halfway between old-world mystics and modern-day visionairies. They still have those aeons old reverence for the gift of fruity bitter Cocoa nubs, but also boast milky creamy candies in the new world. They are ancient alchemists from smeltering jungles, but also chocolateers from Belgium, Germany, France, and Italy – ultimately any region which has treasured a cultural relationship with chocolate. No matter their origin all inevitably find their way back home.



“Happiness. Simple as a glass of chocolate or tortuous as the heart. Bitter. Sweet. Alive.”
― Joanne Harris, Chocolat
