Most memorable chocolate experience:
We live in Costa Rica. My husband is an agronomist and he picks criollo pods, comes home breaks, selects, ferments, and sun dries. I have set up a room with airconditioning to roast, peel, press, conch, and temper....to make 9 g 70% chocolates.
My favorite chocolate is:
