You can sow your own cacao plant, learn about the harvest, the splitting of the pod and the extraction of the beans. Then we continue with the post-harvest process: fermentation and drying, which are determining factors in the quality of the chocolate. Learn about the Dominican Republic’s ecosystem and why it offers the perfect conditions for growing fine cacao which is transformed into the best quality chocolate.
