Stone Xocoveza Coffee lets you savor rich and complex holiday flavors with every sip.

Embracing the tradition of Mexican hot chocolate

Mexican hot chocolate is a rich and timeless indulgence that traces its roots to the ancient Aztec civilization. This hot beverage is usually prepared by dissolving chocolate tablets into warm water or milk and then frothing the mixture to create a velvety texture.

With customary additions of cinnamon, vanilla, and chili peppers, drinking Mexican hot chocolate provides a complex flavor experience with a unique spicy kick, a perfect treat to enjoy during chilly weather or festive occasions. 

The harmonious blend of warming spices and chocolate from Mexican hot chocolate is the inspiration for Stone Brewing’s Stone Xocoveza Imperial Stout, a delicious modern stout that includes the flavors of coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and a generous amount of chocolate.

Celebrating traditions once a year and every day

Stone Xocoveza Imperial Stout has been a fan favorite ever since the beer was first introduced in 2014 as a limited special collaboration release with Cerveceria Insurgente and San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker (after his recipe won our annual homebrew competition).

What makes this imperial stout special is not just its complex chocolatey coffee-spiced taste but also that this beer is released only once a year for the holidays and winter season.

 Now, fans of Stone Xocoveza have another opportunity to celebrate.

Stone Brewing Coffee is fulfilling a dream of many beer enthusiasts who would love to drink Stone all day, every day, with its new line of craft specialty coffees that includes Stone Xocoveza Coffee.

Stone Xocoveza Coffee is a blend of Mexican origin roasted to perfection with tasting notes of toffee, cherry, and milk chocolate. Imagine sipping a steaming hot cup of this coffee in front of a cozy fire.

With Stone Xocoveza Coffee you can enjoy this warm holiday tradition that is special in all the right ways.
