How did we ever discover chocolate? This process is so complex
Locals put the beans in water and boiled to make tea. Over many years I’m sure they just tried different things wth it.
Makes me wonder what unroasted cacao beans taste like. A milder version? Totally different?
But Where's the umpa lumpa's??? 🤔
The people over at Bon Appétit sent their guy brad over to ecuador to look at how they make chocolate(/harvest cacao), super fun and educational https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMT7EnJ_Kp8
dang was about to post this! I freaking loooove It's Alive with Brad Leone.
You can taste raw cacao in Ecuador where they harvest. It’s...interesting. They also really like corn. All kinds.
Gifs, videos, etc. that teach you something.
