Cacao Fruit Tasting | ft. Chuck Kerchner & Greg D'Alesandre Bean to Bar

    • How To

For this episode we're tasting the fruit from four different cacao pods. Here at the Zorzal Cacao Farm in the lush mountains of the Dominican Republic, they grow twelve varietals of cacao, each containing their own unique flavor. Normally, when we discuss flavor based on varietal, we are referring to the dried cacao seeds. In this case we're referring to the juicy pulp surrounding the fresh seed, which also differs in taste depending on its genetics.
