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.
