Chocolate and Coffee Making Workshop with Becca Roebber & Ryan Rabaca
Learn about where coffee and cacao come from, how they are similar and different and why we love them so much! You will learn how to roast coffee & cacao at home, best coffee brew methods and how to make chocolate at home. Finally, experience a sensory analysis by pairing single origin dark chocolate with single origin coffee in a guided tasting.
Each person will leave with a bag of freshly roasted coffee and dark chocolate made by hand.

Becca and indi chocolate love to work collaboratively with other local businesses so that chocolate can be shared with all different communities in Seattle and beyond. She travels to cacao growing regions as often as possible and works with communities to increase their standard of living through the production of cacao.
