Next you will take part in the chocolate making process. You will be shown the process of fermentation and seed drying. You will be able to help roast and grind the fruit. Once you have completed the process you will have a chance to taste your creation, Cajuli or liquid chocolate. Personalize you drink by adding different spices to subtly change the flavor.
