My New Favorite Word: Chocolatería

I could sing your praises all day. Cho-co-lah-tay-reeah. That word — and everything it stands for — is so thoroughly lovely and lyrical. Just saying the word, I can almost smell the fresh cacao grinded with multiple spices, then added to hot milk…and served in front of me, a smiling me.

    Joy, that sounds really lovely! I do wish though that you had posted pictures of the inside of said establishment, and especially of you or other people enjoying their frothy mugs of chocolate caliente! It would make a GREAT post!

    Thanks! I actually haven’t been to the exact chocolateria shown above — since I have yet to take photos of my own, I borrowed someone else’s photo.

    BUT I plan to return to my favorite one here in my neighborhood and yes, take photos. It’s really so good. I wish I could make it a scratch-and-sniff post! 🙂

    i think the building in the picture is a michoacan´s town, where the weather is fine and chocolate is bitter like special.

    mmmmmmchocolate. It would be nice to see a picture of that place, but I know you can’t drag your camera everywhere all the time. 🙂
