From the Founders:
My name is Jessica Escarcega, founder and CEO of Xocolatl House. I was born and raised in Mexico City. I was brought up by my grandmother, who is from Puebla. She was the first person to teach me about our traditions and, above all, how to cook. However, as the oldest child in my family, cooking became more of a chore than a hobby. I never thought I would be doing it for a living!
I’m Steven Marcroft, Jessica’s husband and COO of Xocolatl House. I was born and raised in Salinas, California. After graduating from college, I traveled to Mexico and fell in love with the country. Each place presented an exciting opportunity to learn more about its history, tradition, and food. Cacao is one of those foods that has so much to offer.
Years ago I (Jessica!) visited Tabasco, Mexico because I had heard about the tours they gave on the many cacao farms in the area. There I met Estela Lazaro, who produces our cacao, and she directed workshops as part of her tour. It reminded me so much of my childhood with my grandma. I instantly fell in love with cacao, the whole process that transforms the fruit into something so delicious. To make different drinks, we used cacao that was freshly harvested that morning. It was truly incredible to learn how much work goes into one cup of cacao. I knew one day that I would establish an alliance with Estela and these ambassadors of cacao in Tabasco. I needed to share these wonderful drinks with as many people as possible.
Stop by this Sunday! We invite you to savor not just a drink but a holistic experience – a journey through time and wellness in every delightful cup.

Helen Woodward Animal Center Pet Of The Week
These Kitties Are Sweeter Than Apple Pie!
Victor Hugo wrote that a brother and sister are, “two fingers on one hand.” No other cats in the Helen Woodward Animal Center cattery represent that idea more perfectly than Apple and Pie. Apple is the more reserved of the two. She’ll need a minute to get used to her new forever home, but when she does she becomes the sweetest ball of love you could ever want. Pie, on the other hand, has no hesitations about introducing himself. He’ll march right up to any stranger, purring at the excitement of meeting a new friend. Then he’ll challenge his new buddy to a game! He really enjoys chasing the wand and string around, but he’s also content pushing a crumpled paper ball along the floor. Like Yin and Yang, these six-month-old siblings are the perfect compliments to one another, and an even more perfect addition to any feline fan’s family.
Apple & Pie are waiting to meet you at Helen Woodward Animal Center. Their adoption fee is $178 plus a $36 microchip fee each. They have been altered and are up-to-date on all of their vaccinations. They are microchipped for identification as with all pets adopted from Helen Woodward Animal Center.
Helen Woodward Animal Center is located at 6523 Helen Woodward Way in Rancho Santa Fe. Kennels are open daily Monday through Friday 12 to 6 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last application accepted 15 minutes before closing). For more information call 858-756-4117, option #1 or visit animalcenter.org.
