Chicha is a spanish word for any variety of fermented beverage. It can be made of manioc root (also called
yuca or cassava), corn, or fruits, among other things. Chicha is sometimes masticated before it is allowed to
ferment. After two or three days of fermentation it can achieve an alcohol percentage equivalent to beer.
Among Amazonians chicha is a dietary staple, as well as a work incentive and social lubricant.
