Seneca Klassen is the founder and co-owner of Bittersweet. He manages product development for all of Bittersweet’s drinking chocolates and the Bittersweet Origins line of unique bean-to-bar chocolate. Klassen also runs Bittersweet’s community outreach and training programs, including guided tastings and public presentations on the natural and cultural history of cacao and chocolate. As a lifelong enthusiast, he brings Bittersweet’s chocolate and cacao passion to staff, customers and the broader community.
Please join Seneca as he shares information about the botany and cultural history of chocolate. You’ll also experience a “behind the scenes” visit to a hidden treasure – a fruiting cacao tree in a Conservatory greenhouse.
And then… you’ll enjoy tasting of 5 origin chocolates while gaining an understanding about the importance of post-harvest processing and quality finishing.
Seneca is in Hawaii this summer, establishing a cacao plantation on the North shore of Oahu. Be sure to follow his adventures on his blog and twitter.
