The chocolate making class was so much fun and so very informative! Everyone was able to participate in each step of the chocolate making process. In this picture, I am roasting the coca beans so that we can grind it into a paste to create various things. We all had an amazing time making the chocolate and the other coca based products like hot chocolate, chocolate tea and Mexican hot chocolate. The chocolate making class gave me a lot of perspective regarding all the arduous work that goes into creating a treat most of us enjoy daily. There are so many important steps taken to create quality chocolate from picking the coca plant off of the trunks of the tree, to peeling, roast, grinding and more! It was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and now I can add chocolate-making as a skill under my belt! :D
