If one picture is worth a thousand words, then this post will be worth 16,000 plus.
|First things first, our breakfast.|
|Where the chocolate tours take place.|
|First we sat at a table for a lecture. This is a coca pod.|
|The pod is cut open to view the white colored seeds.|
|After the white comes off, this is what is left. The white is used for syrups.|
|The seeds are crushed into nips.|
|Now we went outside to see coca trees. See the tiny red thing?|
|It turns into this and then yellow like the photos above.|
|Seeds set out to dry.|
|I forgot this reason for this machine.|
|Beans are roasted.|
|Once they are ground, they are formed into ‘cakes’.|
|Here is a sample of chocolate without anything added. Nasty stuff.
We added sugar and then some chili pepper. It started getting better.
The best was the brownie.
