We visited Chequessett Chocolate.


They import fair trade beans from the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Belize and Bolivia.



The beans go through a special winnowing machine to separate the shells from the nibs. They are roasted and ground.


They are tempered for several days to prevent bloom from developing on the bars.



Finally, the chocolate is put into various molds and wrapped.



Samples are available to taste.


The day was grey but the sunset was spectacular. The cottages are silhouetted against the sky.

On a rare lovely day in June, Truro Vineyards was host of A Taste of Truro, one of the events in 2009 to celebrate Truro's tricentennial.

The grapes were just beginning to form on the young vines.
