The Oaxacan Chocolate Club
Monthly Tastings @ Convivio Oaxaca
The Oaxacan Chocolate Club is a monthly gathering of chocolate lovers, exploring the history and culture of chocolate in Oaxaca. Each month, a new theme will focus on a rare or unique aspect of Oaxacan chocolate, and guests will get to come to know, taste, and experience rare types of chocolate, cacao beans, and other chocolate delicacies. Guided by “the Chocolate Guy” – Oaxaca Profundo founder Chris Christou, we explore new worlds and new flavours each month, each gathering being one of a kind.
Chocolate sampled is always sourced from small-scale, Oaxacan or Mexican chocolate makers who share with Oaxaca Profundo, principles of direct, horizontal, and just trade. Themes include but will not be limited to death, ceremony, beverages, water, sacrifice, jaguar chocolate, cacao seeds, the cacao plant, etc.
