Chapo is a beverage made of sweet plantains, water, and spices. It is from the Shipibo and Matsés people of the Peruvian Amazon jungle, and is made from boiled sweet plantains with cinnamon and cloves. Among the Matsés, squeeze its soft flesh of the plantain through homemade palm-leaf sieves and cook the chapo. It is served warm by the fire and often enjoyed from a hammock.
