When the beans were roasted he spread them out on the table and showed us how to peel the crispy skins off the beans.
Then he put the beans into a grinder and ground them up. That's Andy manning the grinder. Harder than it looked!
This is how the ground up beans looked--rich and chocolate-y and mmmmm, that smell!
The ground chocolate went into a pot and back onto the stove, where water, powdered milk, sugar and vanilla were added as the chocolate melted into a thick, rich sauce. Then we all got to sample it served over fresh bananas and pineapple.
