The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

I am doing personal research on the history of chocolate and I am having difficulty finding information on the Jesuit owned cacao plantations. I would like information on this area and time frame in general, but I have decided to focus on this area first just because it seems interesting. Would appreciate any input and everyone have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and whatever else that is celebrated at this time of year.

Can you give more details as to what time you are interested in?
Well the Spanish invaded in the early 16th century and the Jesuit control of the Mayan plantations would presumably begin after that. So that time period.
I have some information onthis on my site- under history, with sources used at the end. More about the morano/crypto jews but may be of interest to you. There is an author called Mordehai Arbell who specializes in this era.
