In 2018, owners Renee’ & Aaron Deckrow had the honor of going to Mindo Ecuador while on a missions trip to help dig wells through a wonderful organization called Life Giving Water International.
They absolutely loved the richness of culture, the people they got to know and the having the opportunity to use their love of photography & videography to capture & share some of the beautiful sights.
While there, they also had the chance to go to a Chocolate factory. Here they were invited to participate in the art of chocolate making.
From Harvesting, Fermenting, Drying, Roasting, Cracking and Winnowing, Grinding & Conching, Tempering, Molding and finally Wrapping… chocolate is a labor of love & why it is one of the simplest & sweetest ways you can share your appreciation for the loved ones in your life.
