Brian Horsley, who grew up in San Diego, has been in Peru since 2002. Look at there homepage to find out, I found it thise week and its all new for me.

I don't think he's correct about his claim, whe all now the story about Criollo, Trinitario and Forastero.

But hey, I'am a chocolatier and not a cocoafarmer so you may ask the same question to Clay he could now

Only the 1879 Longitudinal Conche is used to protect and coax out the wide range of rare, delicate flavors. Thise chocolate is made in Switzerland, probably at Felchlin, I saw these conches at work last summer at Felchlin Schwyz.

Thise year I have a course in Switzerland again and so maybe they can learn me more about thise chocolate and letting me tasted.

Who is the guy in the red shirt?

Is he correct in his claim (at 0:42) that "for the last 500 years the finest chocolate in the world has been made with a type of cacao bean called Nacional"?

Who is Maranon chocolate and what do they make?
