To create these molinillos, a single piece of alder wood is turned on a lathe and carved by hand by artisans, some of whom have spent nearly 50 years at their craft.

Molinillos have been frothing hot chocolate, atole and champurrado in Mexico for a long, long time. A beautiful, hand-crafted tool that dates back centuries, a simple motion to use it, a frothy hot beverage. A gift with history behind it, for a loved one who loves hot chocolate or for you.
