Dexter’s own Mindo Chocolate Maker, Barbara Wilson, will present on all that is chocolate!

Mindo chocolate is made with 100% Ecuadorian "flavor" beans. Cacao originated in the Amazon basin in Ecuador and the cacao tree variety is called Nacional (or criollo). It is considered to be in the top 2% of quality cacao beans. Nacional only grows in Ecuador.

Mindo beans are chosen from select cocoa pods. Choosing only the best condition pods ensures the best flavor chocolate. The chosen beans are then taken to their small farm in Mindo, Ecuador where they ferment and dry the beans. The fermentation process that is carefully controlled as it is critical for developing the smoothest, best flavored chocolate. Mindo beans are not exposed to any contaminants as the Mindo Farm is a certified organic farm.
