- Coco Lopez is a Puerto Rican coconut product which is used in many popular drinks.
The original "Coco Lopez" was invented by Ramon Lopez Irizarry, who was an agricultural professor for the University of Puerto Rico.
With funds from the government, he worked on his idea inside a small laboratory that he owned. He discovered that by mixing sugarcane sugar with coconut cream, he could prepare the beverage.
