Chocolate Production in Colombia – Workshop “Make your own chocolate”

While coffee is considered to be to most typical Colombian product, it is in fact relatively new in Latin America. Cacao is an even more traditional agricultural product of Colombia. Even the pre-Columbian indigenous tribes used cacao seeds as a currency to trade with other tribes, and chocolate was considered to be divine. Nowadays, most Colombians still prefer hot chocolate in the morning instead of coffee.

This unique day trip takes you deep into the eastern highlands of Antioquia. The idyllic village of San Francisco with its pristine rivers and sub-tropical climate is perfect for cacao growing. Visit a community chocolate project and learn everything about cacao production. You even get the chance to make your own chocolate. The artisanal chocolate production is coordinated by local women and combines the conservation of endemic tropical forests with sustainable agriculture.
