Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

Hi! My name is Michelle and I'm an American student living in Guatemala City while I teach at the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala and write my dissertation. Although my studies have nothing to do with chocolate, I'm very interested in collecting artifacts or replicas that deal with chocolate, chocolate making and enjoying. I've read quite a bit on the subject and have entertained the idea of writing a book on tasting chocolate; how to tell the good from the garbage. I can't write that book yet however because I'm still in the research phase. I've been in Guatemala for a month now and have yet to find any good chocolate, or factories, but I admit that I haven't looked that thoroughly. I will try to keep up my blog with my findings. All in the name of research!

Hi Michelle. What are you studying in Guatemala? As the land of the Maya, of course it has a brilliant chocolate history, so you are in the right place to experience it! I was fortunate to meet a few new friends a couple of weeks ago at the Maya Meetings at UT Austin who currently live in Guatemala, and a couple of them do tours of Maya sites if you are interested. Keep us up to date on your chocolate findings!
