How to Make Chocolate in Guatemala for Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than to talk about chocolate? Cacao has been used by the Mayas for ages, and Viaventure is now offering an Antigua-based workshop that will teach guests about its history, how it’s grown, and what has led to its mass production today.
Guests will also get an overview of the chocolate-making process and have a chance to turn cacao beans into everything from cacao tea to Maya hot chocolate to traditional chocolate bars (the latter of which can be customized with delicious add-ins like almonds, coffee beans, ginger, and sea salt).
Everything made is tasted along the way, and guests will leave with chocolate in hand.
