The Rosarito Beach Convention and Tourism Committee (Cotuco) wants to make people aware of the municipality's various wonders, which is why it invites everyone to visit Chocolates Akbal, a company founded in Tijuana in 2015 by master chocolate maker Efran Dominguez Vera. It should be noted that Akbal is the first specialized chocolate shop in Mexico's northern region, with a boutique and distribution to more than 30 locations.

This chocolate store specializing in "bean-to-bar/bonbon" is now located in the lovely municipality of Playas de Rosarito, where magic is performed by transforming cocoa beans into delectable chocolate.

Are you familiar with the steps involved in producing this delectable dessert? If you don't know, here's what you need to know:

It all begins with roasted cocoa beans that are ground continuously until the necessary consistency is achieved. Once the desired consistency is completed, the mixture is put into molds to form full bars, chocolates of various colors, and fillings that will please you. In addition, coated fruits or seeds are included; table chocolates for beverages and news coverage are also available.

Chocolate bonbons are one of Akbal's most popular items; they are miniature hand-painted pieces with various styles, and they feature natural chocolate-based fillings. The chocolate bars produced are vegan, with just three components allowed; the most popular are those sweetened with monk fruit or those that do not include sugar.

Visiting Akbal is a unique experience since it delights all of your senses, from scent to taste to sight. You will enjoy a part of the process of manufacturing its items by visiting its boutique, which is located close to the workshop. You may also customize your box of chocolates with your favorite tastes, and don't miss out on the delectable chocolate and espresso-based beverages.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit the first chocolate shop in northern Mexico, 100% Rosario, located at Blvd. Benito Juárez 132-2, Machado Nte., 22703 Rosarito, B.C. Its current autumn-winter hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If you cannot visit their facilities, do not go without experiencing their products.
