Exploring Cacao in Costa Rica
This trip is a great opportunity to experience cacao’s origins first hand with the insightful and entertaining guidance of Steve De Vries (often hailed as the grandfather of the craft chocolate movement). Aubrey and Jesse went in 2011 and had blast! We would highly encourage anyone interested in an intimate cacao growing region experience to take this trip.  This tour is especially appropriate for people who are working in, or want to work in the chocolate industry.
