"Lima is home to over 150 different micro-climates and located very close to the ecquator, and this makes it a pretty damn fine place to grow cacoa."
In Searching Out the World's Rarest Chocolate from PechaKucha Night Louisville Vol. 15, Erika Chavez-Graziano recounts her travel to a remote region of Peru on a quest to find "Fortunado #4", the world's rarest cacao. Once thought to be extinct, a lone tree, from which Furtunado #4 comes, was recently re-discovered, and having come back from the dead, now serves as the mother tree for the continuation of this rare chocolate.
Watch this "PechaKucha of the Day" from Wednesday from May 6, 2015.
