Te diría cualquier Chapin que Atol Blanco is the most representative drink of Guatemala, even before coffee. It’s made from ground corn maize, mixed with spices and (in Chichicastenango) is served hot in a coconut shell mug. Maya beliefs were that we were initially created from maíz and drinking it would re-energize the body. Today, maíz is used in many foods como la tortilla, the tamal, the chuchito and our favorite, atol blanco. Our design is inspired by the warm colors and feelings that come from drinking a tacita de atol on the church steps during a cold winter night in Chichicastenango.
