Cacao and anise go great together. They are like friends that have traveled for hours to enjoy each other's company. Anise comes from Azia, and brights up your cacao drink with that fresh spicy hint of oriental delight.
We love it with Cusco cacao from Peru, but you can also use Alta Verapaz or Matagalpa cacao.
