You’ll know this humble jungle bean as the source of delicious cookies and lots of brown things - brown concrete, brown glass, brown fireworks and even brown shulker boxes. But you might not know its long and grand history, which involves ancient civilisations, human sacrifice, conquering Spaniards, and delicious confections.
