"As a new member in the FCIA the January meeting was my first exposure to the membership. Not only was I welcomed as a peer, I was exposed to suppliers and fellow chocolatiers that cared as much as I do about Chocolate. The evening provided a wealth of information, from quality packaging suppliers to extremely unique Chocolates to work with and educational resources. I look forward to a continuing membership as "Papa's Chocolates" continues to grow."

    Anatomy of Fine Chocolate Flavor

    Everything done to cacao beans from the minute a farmer scoops them out of the pod to the way in which they are fermented, dried, roasted and processed by the chocolate maker into chocolate has a bearing on chocolate flavor. But proper management at the farm or the factory can only help "express" the seminal imprint of flavor determined by genetics. Just how much does genetics determine chocolate flavor?

    Join us to learn about the anatomy of fine chocolate flavor with experienced cacao expert and taster Ed Seguine and USDA/ARS geneticist Lyndel W. Meinhardt.  Using original data culled from ongoing research spearheaded by FCIA’s own Heirloom Cacao Project in conjunction with the USDA/ARS Perennial Crops Lab, Sequine and Meinhardt will shed light on the elusive connection between fine flavor and genotype followed by a tasting of heirloom cacaos and a Q&A section. 

    Don’t miss the opportunity to interact with and ask questions of the key people who are redefining our understanding of fine chocolate flavor.  

    This year we are limited by venue to 100 attendees only - please make sure to register now so you won't be disappointed in June.
