Book a private ceremonial cacao tasting with Soul Lift Cacao founder Nick Meador, where you can try ceremonial cacao varieties grown on family farms in different parts of Guatemala.
We'll taste four single-origin cacao drinks, all prepared as 70% dark drinking chocolate with coconut sugar and filtered water, plus a rare surprise.
Length of time: 2 hours
Location: 2601 NE MLK Blvd, Portland, OR 97212
All the cacao is prepared in small batches by Mayan people in Guatemala, and sourced through ethical direct trade. The seeds (aka "beans") are roasted over wood fire and peeled by hand the traditional way.
With a "tree to cup" slideshow presentation, you'll learn about the whole life cycle of cacao (the original form of chocolate) and how to use all your senses to really appreciate the subtle differences.
You'll leave with a whole new perspective on the chocolate industry and ways to enjoy drinking chocolate in a healthier, more sustainable way.
The price per person goes down the larger your group is, with a maximum of 6 people per group.
