Mayana Bowl (Jícara)


Drink your chocolate with the Jícara, the way the Maya and the Aztecs did.

Inspired by the ancient traditions, we drink chocolate with a natural bowl called “Jícara”, the word comes from “xicalli” in Nahuatl meaning a vessel or container.

The jícara was used in prehispanic times as a measure and as a cup for the higher echelons of the Aztec empire’s organization.

Our jícaras are made from a fruit shell from the calabash tree and are beautifully decorated by hand with “the maque” technique by Don Ismael Guzmán in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Our jícaras hold 8-10oz.

*These are natural and each piece is unique – the color tone and size may vary (13-14cm diameter).
