Like Chocolate like Coffee

We went to the Southwest Chocolate & Coffee Fest this afternoon. It was very crowded, very noisy, but interesting to see the coffee roasters and chocolatiers in New Mexico together. There were a lot of other vendors selling beer, wine, salsas, pastries, jams and jellies, jewelry, hats, T-shirts and various fast foods. There were also painting and baking classes, a barn turned into a playground for children, and a stage with a so so country band that played a set while we were walking around. There was a “Ted Talk” like presentation on indigenous use of cocoa and honey going on while we were there, also. I have only included photos of a few of the coffee roasters and chocolatiers.

VM had a excellent booth. I had some printing done at The Village Print Shop on Friday, and they were printing the T-shirts for VM Coffee.

When Theobroma had a little shop downtown, we used to get chocolate there. Theobroma chocolate is super.

I wanted to get a full shot of the cow skull, but there were too many people crowded around it, and they were in no hurry to move.

The Art of Chocolate’s chocolates were very fancy and very good looking.
