TheChocolateLife celebrated its 9th anniversary in January. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary, I will be leading a tour to Bolivia to visit Hacienda Tranquilidad and the Alto Beni to learn more about the cacaos silvestre - the wild cacaos - of the Beniano. Please contact me via Private Note if you want to receive more information as trip planning unfolds.
