Macaw Kakau

The making of chocolat

 

Ever since our forefathers, cocoa has had a vital importance in people's daily life. It is now drunk daily regardless of social status. In the past nobility used to drink chocolate in artistically decorated tumblers. Cocoa was also the favorite drink of Mayan royalty, kings and priests. These invented basic cocoa paste preparation, which remains unchanged to this day: cocoa beans fermentation, drying, roasting, shelling, crushing and grinding. Because of this ancient tradition, we feel it is important that our visitors visit our cocoa plantations. This way they may know more about the cocoa tree, its characteristics, the soil factor, the fruit itself and its different varieties. In addition, they may discover the process and its benefits up to having this precious fruit on our table.
