Our tour starts early at 9am and we will visit a cocoa plantation of approximately 100 hectares in the Cerecita Valley. This activity allows us to learn about the traditions of our farmers, which also highlights the diversity of tropical fruits and flowers as well as exotic plantations in our region.
We will learn the production process in the machines and equipment that have been designed and built in the same facilities by the master chocolatiers.
First you start with toasting, which together with the fermentation processes is crucial for the aromas and flavors of chocolate to develop. This activity is defined as "natural chocolate planting" .
Since we differ in a very important factor: that the chocolate is made in the same plantation, giving an unparalleled importance to the origin of the chocolate product that is made inside the hacienda where the cocoa plantation is located.
