Cacao trees in Haiti! Since 2012, Treedom has been supporting planting activities in this area to reduce soil eriosion and fight the deterioration of the terrain and river systems. That's why it's also very important to choose the right species to plant, which both help to strengthen the soils and also enable our farmers to generate more income through fruit production. #LetsGreenThePlanet . . . #treedom #plantsinfocus #treelove #treeplanting#climateaction #makeanimpact #treeoflife #cacao#cacaolover #cacaotree #cacaofarm #reforestation#agroforestry #farmerlife #manpower #natura#naturelover #gogreen #plantationshutters  #plantree#treeplanting #hugs_for_trees #forestbathing#waldluft #naturgenießen #wowplanet#conservation #ecolifestyle #sustainableliving

Esta vez me ha tocado viajar a Costa de Marfil 🇨🇮 para ver todo el proceso de producción del cacao. El cacao se cultiva principalmente en África del Oeste, América Central, Sudamérica y Asia. Los mayores países productores del mundo son: Costa de Marfil (38%), Ghana (19%) e Indonesia (13%). Theobroma cacao es el nombre científico que recibe el árbol del cacao o cacaotero. Theobroma significa, en grigo, «alimento de los dioses». . . . #cacao #chocolate #costademarfil #viajar #cultura #travel #africa #tree #cacaotree

Cacao has been revered as sacred for thousands of years by the ancient Olmec, Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Originally it was ground with other ingredients and whipped into a frothy drink and offered to royal guests and priests ceremonially. The criollo variety was prized most of all and these beans were used as currency, along with feathers and jade. _____________________________________________________________ . . . . . . . . #maya_alkaline_herbs #cacao #natural #chocolate #alkaline #maya #aztec #olmec #belize #mexico #indigenous #cacaotree #cafe #coffee #☕️ #🍫 #wednesday

Good quality chocolate comes from the best cacao pods. As for La Rose Noire’s 69% Single Origin Chocolate, its cacao pods are carefully selected. They meticulously go through a "Chocolate Journey" - from harvesting, fermenting, drying, roasting, cracking, winnowing, grinding, conching, tempering to moulding, to become one of the best tasting chocolates in the market! #Chocolate #chocolatier #choco #cacao #pods #cacaopods #trees #fruit #flavor #chocolatelab #chocolates #farm #singleorigin #singleoriginchocolate #tropical #cacaotree #harvest #harvesting #cocoa #cocoapod #larosenoire

Chocolate comes from the cacao tree that has a very colorful fruit. The fruit would start as green then it would turn red, then yellow. Once it starts turning yellow, it would be ready to harvest. . There isn't much flesh to its fruit, but you can suck on the seed like you would an atis. The taste is a fruity balance of sweet and sour, far from the sweet chocolate or bitter tablea we are familiar to. . I grew up loving this fruit. Having some today feels like childhood! ❤. . #cacaotree #cacaofruit #chocolate #sideyardfinds #atmygrandparentshouse

Cuánto chocolate pensás que consumís anualmente? Sabías que unos de los mayores consumidores del mundo son los europeos, con un promedio anual estimado por persona de 7kg? No te asustes! Yo hice mi cuenta y podría ser perfectamente europea, incluso les gano!!🤣 . . Cada vez que viajo trato de comprar barras de chocolate con buen porcentaje de cacao, para degustar y para relacionar las marcas con su calidad. El precio de las mejores barras de chocolate está en promedio en un valor de 10 dólares la unidad. Y saben que tienen en común la mayoría de esos fabricantes? NINGUNO cultiva su cacao, TODOS lo importan de países como Costa Rica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Guatemala e incluso Vietnam e India, entre otros. Cómo es posible que los países que más producen chocolate y más consumen chocolate no son aquellos que lo cultivan? A mí me asombra, quizás porque vengo de un país como Argentina, que tampoco tiene cacao y donde por ejemplo comprar un kilo de nibs no sólo es muy complicado sino que cuesta 5 veces más que en Costa Rica. Mi objetivo es que todos valoremos vivir en un país que tiene SU cacao, fomentar su consumo ya que es un producto nacional, que siga creciendo de manera agroecológica, pelear por el comercio justo, entender todas las personas que están dentro de esta cadena. . . Yo por mi parte todos los días me maravillo un poco más, lo valoro un poco más y tengo más y más ganas de seguir sembrando el concepto de que el cacao no tiene más que beneficios para todos nosotros. . #cacao #cacaodecostarica #costaricancacao #cacaolove #lovecacao #cacaolovers #chocolate #chocolatelover #costaricanchocolate #cacaotree #cacaopod #consumelocal #organico #costarica #tstchocolates @tst.chocolates

История шоколада. Часть 2. Температура плавления правильно темперированного какао-масла ~34°C. Именно близость этого показателя к температуре человеческого тела делает #шоколад таким нежным. Он остаётся твёрдым в руках, но во рту сразу начинает таять, быстро отдавая свой вкус и аромат. После получения какао-масла вопрос о производстве плиточного шоколада был делом только времени. Считается, что первая плитка горького шоколада была произведёна в 1847 году в Англии, на фабрике J. S. Fry & Sons. А в 1875 году, после многочисленных экспериментов, был получен первый #молочныйшоколад. #Белыйшоколад, не содержащий в себе какао-порошка, появился ещё позднее, уже в 1930-х годах, и почти случайно. Концерну #Нестле потребовалось избавиться от образовавшегося на складах излишка какао-масла, остававшегося после производства #какао и молочного шоколада. Так на рынке появился новый продукт на основе какао-масла, сухого молока и сахара.

Checking in on the cacao seedings. They are looking sturdier. Second pic is the one that finally looked like it might take off last week. Look at the improvement! The botanical name for chocolate-producing trees is Theobroma cacao. There are roughly 20 species in genus Theobroma. Some of the others produce edible fruit, but only one makes chocolate. 🍫🌱

Cacao nursery in Quellouno, new plants that will take their time and grow into beautiful trees. Cacao trees take quite a while to become productive, almost five years, so imagine how long does it take to cacao to turn into your chocolate bar and how much farmers have to work and how much time they have to invest in order to provide good quality cacao. Food is also the result of its journey, try to learn as much as you can about it ☺️ ______________________________________________________ #cacao #chocolate #singleorigin #cacaobeans #beantobar #cioccolato #chocolatemaking #chocolatemaker #cioccolato #beantobarchocolate #chocolatebar #singleoriginchocolatebar #chocogasm #food #knowyoufood

Each year the forest fire more than 6,000 hotspots in the North of Thailand destroy the forests and make the air in the North become the worst in the world for the pollution index. The root cause isn’t only the nature and the culture. We from the background of law, we quote the FAO: “According to the law, all natural resources are owned by the state. However, in practice, they are openly accessible to everyone. The state is not capable of managing and maintaining all the natural resources, while local people are officially barred from participating in the management processes, which contributes to resource degradation. All fires that occur on state land are “forest fires” because they are assumed to be out of control and unwanted. Fires in the forest may be caused by agricultural practices as burning for hunting and gathering purposes. The root cause of forest fires is the absence of a feeling of ownership over the resources. As a result, people are careless about how they treat the environment. This contrasts with the use of fire in community forests, where fire is used carefully to avoid damage to communal property. In the latter case, community members know each other well and are able to find the culprit responsible for the fire more easily.” We work with MTT Farm in collaboration with the Royal Forest Department helps providing the cacao saplings to regrow the forests. No commitment to force to purchase cacao from the growers. But with the confidence in our sustainable ecosystem built by MTT and Kad Kokoa, the Department believes in this right partnership. MTT Farm x Kad Kokoa ร่วมกันกับกรมป่าไม้ ปลูกป่าทดแทนด้วยกล้าโกโก้ ของพวกเรา. ไม่มีการบังคับซื้อ หรืออย่างไร เราต้องช่วยทดแทนผืนป่า. แต่กรมป่าไม้ มั่นใจในพวกเราที่จะสานฝันแท้จริงของโกโก้ไทย Help us supporting Thai cacao and the forest! ^^^ #kadkokoa #thailand #regrow #forest #tree #forestfire #culture #nature #socialimpact #goodcause #socialenterprise #socialentrepreneurship #cacao #cocoa #saplings #cacaotree #chocolate #beantobar

Thanks for coming! 🤗💚 . Repost from @adyatiputri ——— #latepost another favorite part of mine from ASEAN Food Conference 2019 is the field trip! We visited an organic chocolate manufacturer that produces their chocolates literally from farm to table, a.k.a they plant their own cacao so that they can have cacao beans that are guaranteed to be organic. The processes are shown starting from the 2nd picture: cacao fruit > fermentation (they use traditional method utilizing banana leaf to keep the environment anaerobic, as banana leaf has a wax layer on its surface) > drying > roasting and grinding > cocoa nibs > mixing and refining > conching > molding and tempering (not captured) > packing. You can always ask me further if you want to know about chocolate making process, this is part of Food Processing module that I teach anyway! 🥰🥰🥰

Winnowing is not the most exciting part of the process 😂 It consists in separating the beans from their husks. First we crack the beans then we put them into a machine that helps us removing the shells, pretty much completely. Gravity and air speed are essential in this process, in fact the cracked beans are placed in a container on the top of the machine and nibs, being heavier, fall down in a container, husks are sucked away by another part of the machine ( like a vacuum cleaner ) because they are lighter. The result at this point is a container full of perfect cacao nibs with no husks! It is important to have clean nibs because the husks will affect the taste of the chocolate, and being our chocolate made with just two ingredients it is necessary to have the best product possible. To help us achieving this result we want our beans completely cooled after the roasting part, this way the husks will come off easier. I love plunging my hand in cacao nibs ♥️ _______________________________________________________ #cacao #chocolate #singleorigin #cacaobeans #beantobar #cioccolato #chocolatemaking #chocolatemaker #cioccolato #beantobarchocolate #chocolatebar #singleoriginchocolatebar #chocogasm #food
