Delivering Chocolate to the Farmers of Chuao

Trip report for my November 2010 trip to Chuao, Venezuela

If there is one place in the world of chocolate that strikes cords of reverence in the hearts of chocolate lovers, it is the very remote village of Chuao on the Caribbean coast of Venezuela. This little village has been producing some of the world's finest cocoa for over 400 years. Ever since I started making chocolate, I have wanted to make chocolate from these incredibly flavorful cocoa beans.
