What you'll do

I invite you to delve into the ancestral world of cocoa. First, a brief talk about the cocoa culture in Mexico. Afterwards we will enjoy a tasting tasting of aromas, textures and flavors of the food of the gods to finally know and practice the artisanal elaboration of roasting, descascarillado and grinding of cocoa; making an emblematic recipe for the Nina Chocolatería.
