Your guide Jonas, founder and head chocolate maker at Firefly Chocolate, will share with you the magical world of chocolate with stories from the cacao farm to the chocolate factory. You'll learn way more about chocolate than you ever expected to, and be able to ask any questions that interest you, from health benefits of chocolate to how to run a small business to how to make chocolate and more.
Jonas has traveled extensively in Belize and Guatemala and Mexico to source cacao and operates one of approximately 200 bean to bar chocolate factories in the US. His factory is one of very few to focus exclusively on chocolate as a truly healthy food — their specialty is 85% chocolate bars with coconut sugar, and unsweetened ceremonial drinking chocolate. If you are tired of consuming so much sugar, come discover what freshly made, pure chocolate is all about. Jonas has presented his chocolate at the California Academy of Sciences, the Bioneers Conference, the Science and Non-duality Conference, as well as many others.
You will receive a private factory tour, share a drinking chocolate ceremony, and learn how to use a traditional metate to make Mexican stone ground chocolate paste.
