Recovering a 17th century tradition which became extinct with the arrival of industrialisation in 1960, i.e. the selling of natural horchata on the street, Món Orxata’s carts have become an emblem on the streets of Valencia.
Our carts cool the horchata in the same way as 100 years ago, using ice through an autonomous cooling system patented with the UPV (Universidad Politécnica de Valencia), so we don’t need to consume energy or emit gases or noises in order to cool our natural horchata.
We would like to give a special mention to our horchata sellers – a group of 40 women who are our visible face on the streets of Valencia and the soul of “Món Orxata”.
These women persevere, are good humoured and hard workers. With their carts, they are bringing back the human and personalised treatment reminiscent of traditional street markets, something that is being lost with the invasion of department stores and some predatory supermarket chains.
