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).
