|La Soledad, chocolate and mole, on the street of chocolate stores, near Abastos Market. Here you can taste the three kinds of drinking chocolate (above), with different spices and depths.|
|The best Mexican chocolate comes from Oaxaca, so this has been yet another kind of pilgrimage.|
|Cocoa bean roasters and grinders.|
|Mole tasting -- with a collection of mezcals in case you want to pair.|
I have passed on Seattle's Theo Chocolate several times as I've been traveling, as a calling card from my home town (I live six blocks away from the factory in Seattle.) Everyone's liked Coconut Curry.
