Oh, what a difference a year makes. In July 2020, I was hosting online chocolate tastings for people like you whose original summer plans were cancelled by the pandemic. These days, my mailbox is filled with out-of-office messages and I spend more time under the shade of our oak tree than in my office on Zoom.
If you’ve been able to get away this summer, I hope you’ve had a wonderful vacation. If you’re now looking for a fun activity to do while escaping the scorching heat, I have good news: tickets for my summer-friendly cacao & chocolate tasting are officially live! Read on to learn more.
The idea for this tasting was born from a question: are there cacao products that do not melt in the heat? The answer, I found out, is yes. Innovative companies like Good King in Seattle and Jinjii Chocolate in Baltimore are reimagining how cacao beans are transformed, from crunchy snacks to squeezable liquid chocolate. Over in Ecuador, Cocoa Supply collects cacao fruit pulp into the cutest pouches to use in cocktails and more.
On Saturday, July 31 at 3 PM ET, you’ll discover these three summer-friendly cacao products that will challenge your perception of chocolate. Leila Carvajal, founder of Cocoa Supply, and Kim Wilson, founder of Good King will be joining us to share their story and answer your questions as well.
Tickets for the event are $63.54 per household and include the following products shipped to your home:
- A 3-oz pouch of cacao pulp from Ecuador
- A 1-oz pouch of Good King candied cacao beans
- A 3-oz pouch of Jinji Chocolate of 70% liquid dark chocolate made with cacao beans from Ecuador and agave nectar
To avoid shipping delays, the event is limited to US residents and Canadian attendees in Quebec and Ontario. Tickets must be purchased by Tuesday, July 27.
I hope to see you this month!
