CREO Chocolate Factory Tour

Hosted by Anne North and Sue Mann

Saturday, September 24

We donned white hairnets and toured the factory, starting with seeds being dried and roasted before being cracked open so the nibs can be separated from the seedís skin.  The nibs are then ground and conched for smoothness and to eliminate acidity before the chocolate is tempered and packaged so it can go to chocolatiers, such as Seeís, Moonstruck, Jaciva and others who make it into the wonderful chocolates we enjoy.  

Finally, everyone made their own chocolate bar with seasonings & goodies added to taste.  The tour ended with cups of cacao tea for all.
