Cacao and Chocolate Drinks in the Americas

Chocolate is international. But where did our love of cacao start? Join Karla McNeil-Rueda of Cru Chocolate for a historical tasting of chocolate drinks from across the Americas, from Pre-Hispanic times to the present day. Taste and learn about the political and social events that shaped our consumption of chocolate drinks, and the current revival of drinking chocolate for health and community.

If you choose, you may add a donation to Grounds for Health to your registration for this event.

About Grounds for Health:

Since 1996, Grounds for Health has worked in Latin America and Africa to address one of the most significant disparities in women’s health globally. Cervical cancer is a nearly 100% treatable disease, and yet in the next 15 years it is expected to kill six million women – 90% of whom will live in developing countries. They specialize in working in communities that represent the base of global supply chains such as coffee, tea, cut flowers and cocoa. Grounds for Health is a mission-driven, international non-profit organization, born out of and with enduring ties to the coffee industry, and focused on increasing coverage of cervical cancer prevention services.
