TCHO Chocolate, part 1: chocolate origins

Chocolate: Origins

Xeni and Pesco visit TCHO, a homebrew chocolate technology startup hacked together by a space shuttle technologist, Timothy Childs, and the founder of Wired, Louis Rosetto.

In part one of BBtv’s multi-part exploration of Tcho, we begin in the lab, and learn about the origins of chocolate: it’s a weird looking fruit with biological roots in faraway tropical lands.

How this fruit is cultivated, harvested, and cured determines the flavor of the final product, and we learn about the hedonics — the sensual nuances — of this exotic and temperamental element.
