Potomac Chocolate at the Smithsonian!
We’ve known about this for quite a while (even tentatively announced it to our Kickstarter backers a while ago), but didn’t want to announce it publicly until we had final confirmation that we were going to be a part of it. Well, we (finally) got that final confirmation last week, so here goes.
Potomac Chocolate Co. will be taking part in the Smithsonian Resident Associates all-day seminar to be held at the National Museum of the American Indian:
Chocolate: From Mayan Worship to Modern Wonder
We’ll be one of a few artisan chocolate makers whose chocolate will be tasted in the “Chocolate Meltdown and Tasting” portion of the program. We were asked to provide a bar in the 80-90% cacao range and will be dropping off a special edition 82% Upala bar tomorrow afternoon.
We’re very excited for this event as it is really the first time that any of our chocolate will be out in the world and tasted by the public. We’re really grateful to Biagio of Biagio Fine Chocolate in DC, the Smithsonian Resident Associates people and Mark Christian of the to-be-launched-the-day-of-the-event chocolate tasting and info site C-Spot.com for the invitation to participate.
And as always, we’re incredibly grateful to all of you who have helped us to reach this point! We’ve recently gotten to the point where we think our chocolate is ready for production. We just have a few other things to iron out, including finalized packaging, and then we’ll be ready to start taking orders for our first bar!
