Mindo

We spent a weekend in Mindo! We went to a chocolate factory, hiked, saw more waterfalls and visited a butterfly farm!

Notes from chocolate factory.
Lindts chocolate is Ecuadorian
Africa produces 70% of worlds chocolate. Much of it is GMO. Like Hershey’s.
Takes 7years for cocoa tree to Mature
Can grow 20° n and s of equator.
Only 5% of worlds chocolate comes from Ecuador. But it makes 80% of worlds fine chocolate.
70-72hr mixing of sugar and cocoa at constant speed and temperature to produce chocolate.
