Savor chocolate made the old-fashioned wayEstablished in 1777, Jolonch chocolate claims to be the oldest operating chocolate producer in Europe, and one of the oldest in the world. Here, you can still watch workers make chocolate the old-fashioned way, "a la pedra" or stone-ground. For chocaholics that prefer their chocolate with a smoother, silkier texture Jolonch also produces artisan milk and dark chocolates. Before you go, sit down to a cup of the local-version of hot chocolate--stone-ground chocolate with cinnamon dissolved in hot milk to a runny pudding-like consistency, intended more as a dipping sauce for churros and pastries than as a beverage.
