Michael Sacco spends most of his days with his team roasting, grinding, tempering and packaging every piece of chocolate made on the premises of ChocoSol, a learning community and chocolate social enterprise in Toronto that also grows ingredients... All told, ChocoSol makes 1. 4 tons of chocolate per month creating 10 or so different types of chocolates for eating and at least four Mexican-style drinking chocolates, in addition to roasting more than 1,200 pounds of coffee. On his latest visit in January, Sacco and Chrystal Porter, ChocoSol’s chocolatier, spent a day in the Central Valley of Oaxaca learning from Zapotec women how to make the traditional drinking chocolate, tejate, using a stone metate, a tool for...

From bean to bar: Fort Collins' Nuance Chocolate makes exotic chocolate from internationally sourced beans - Rocky Mountain Collegian

It is nigh impossible to tour Old Town and not run into a business in the likes of the Bean Cycle Roasters, New Belgium Brewing or Happy Lucky’s Teahouse, paragons of their respective brewing industries. However, it is not one that brews coffee, beer or tea, but chocolate. Nuance Chocolate is one of the only few—and growing—true bean-to-bar producers in the country. In this small classification of businesses, Nuance Chocolate stands out as one of the best. “We got the largest selection of single origin chocolate of any chocolate maker in the world,”Toby Gadd said. Before reaching this level, chocolate making was just a mutual interest for Toby and Alix Gadd. “My wife and I were kind of obsessed with the whole chocolate process,” Gadd said.

Millennial Pink Chocolate Invented by Swiss Chocolatier

The latest in a long line of edible and inedible objects to get the pink treatment — including ceviche, cocktails, and entire restaurants — is chocolate. Barry Callebaut AG, the world’s largest producer of chocolate, claims to have invented an entirely new type of chocolate it calls ruby — and yes, it has a petal pink hue. As the Switzerland-based company’s CEO Antoine de Saint-Affrique told Bloomberg: “It’s natural, it’s colorful, it’s hedonistic, there’s an indulgence aspect to it, but it...

From Bean To Bar: Crafting Chocolate The Traditional Mayan Way

Photo by Ryan YoungPatricia Tsai at ChocoVivo“When I went down there, it was really an eye-opening experience,” recalled Tsai. “Because the way that they treat chocolate, it was truly food. It was a completely different mindset, so I think that’s why there was this shift in perspective.”Unlike the silky, sweet chocolate candy modern consumers are familiar with, the chocolate consumed by the Mayans was drunk like a cup of coffee. It was thick, dark and quite bitter, but provided a natural...
