world of chocolate so we can understand exactly we are eating.

Chocolate starts a tree called cacao tree. T his tree grows in equatorial regions, especially in
place such as South America, Africa, and Indonesia. T he cacao tree produces a fruit about
the size of a small pine apple. In side the fruits are the tree’s seeds. T hey are also known as
coco beans.

Next, the beans are fermented for about a week, dried in the sun. After that they are shipped
to the chocolate maker. T he chocolate maker starts processing by roasting the beans to bring
out the flavour. Different beans from different places have different qualities and flavour. So
they are often shorted and blended to produce a distinctive mix.

T he next process is winnowing. T he roasted beans are winnowed to remove the meat nib of
the cacao bean from its shell. T hen the nibs are blended. T he blended nibs are grounded to
make it liquid. T he liquid is called chocolate liquor. It tastes bitter.

All seeds contain some amount of fat and cacao beans are not different. However, cacao
beans are half fat, which is why they ground nibs from liquid. It is pure bitter chocolate.
