Could Chocolate be good for you?

Try our new Tasting class combining the healthiest green tea and the rarest cocoa bean in world! We will give you cliff notes on the benefits of drinking green tea and eating real chocolate plus important tips on the do’s and don’ts related to consuming these two superfoods. This new class includes a demonstration on making matcha tea and a matcha latte along with a chocolate tasting. Thought to be extinct in the early 1900s, pure nacional cacao was rediscovered in the Maranon River Canyon of Peru. It is now known as the world’s rarest cocoa bean, renamed Fortunato No. 4 because it was discovered on the farm of Don Fortunato & it was the 4th USDA genetic sampled tested that officially recognized the rediscovery of the legendary Pure Nacional. Cal-a-Vie is proud to announce that we’ve partnered with David Bacco, a renown San Diegan Chocolatier to bring this rare chocolate to our guests in our own signature 68% dark chocolate bar.
