The Company today, derived from the Legend of yesterday.
A Legend Woven from the Ancient Aztec, craddles the story of Sephra. A goddess who's Beauty, was depicted in the darkness of rich earth; akin to the luster and glow of pure gold. As a gift from Sephra, the Cocoa tree was bestowed upon the Aztecs. Who's presence carried the sweet aroma of Cocoa.
It is the belief, that the Spirit of Sephra nourished the Cocoa trees, living within the bean produced. "Theobroma Cacao" meaning "food of the gods," the name given to the Cocoa tree by the Aztec Kings. Therefore making the Cocoa beans so valuable that often, they were used to pay tribute to Royality.
The Ruler of the Aztec Empire, Montezuma was enchanted by Sephra, so much so, by his own, He Commissioned an elite force of skilled Artisans and Master Craftsmen to construct in honor of the goddess, a Temple. Giving birth to the origins of Sephra Fountain. Montezuma had it Crafted in Honor of the goddess. Built in the highest room within the Temple walls. The Fountain surrounded with a splended array of perfectly selected Cocoa beans, with hope that Sephra, would bless the people with the Unique and Valuable crop.
Extremely pleased with the gift of Montezuma, it has been written that Sephra came to Montezuma in a dream, told him that her spirit would forever dwell in the Fountain he had gifted her. After awakening to the sweet smell of Cocoa lingering in the air, Montezuma was led to the room in the Temple where Sephra's fountain stood. Only to find... the Fountain no longer flowed with water. The richest, purest chocolate flowed - surely, this, was a gift from the gods.
