  string(4722) "Back in 2004, Elaine Read and Matt Weyandt were working with the Democratic National Committee. He was on the West Coast, she was on the East, but when the two met at an organizing event, sparks flew. “Within the year, we knew we wanted to travel the world together, or at least start off with a chunk of it,” Read says. Despite spending only a few weeks in the same city, they got engaged and after the election went traveling together through Central America. “We kept each other up under reed roofs and in rain-drenched shacks dreaming big, vague dreams.”

The pair got married in Nicaragua and soon had their first child, a son named Ronan. After returning to Atlanta, Read started a career in international aid and Weyandt went to work as campaign manager for U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ 2012 reelection run. But eventually, both realized they were ready for a change.

“We felt we wanted to mix it up a little bit,” Weyandt says. “We had been doing these jobs and yet we were marching down this path. We talked about living outside the States again, but kept putting it off until we discovered that it will never be the right time. You just have to do it.”
And so, in 2013, right after their second child was born, they quit their jobs and moved to Costa Rica with 3-year-old Ronan and 4-month-old Eva. The family of four rented a little house in the rainforest, just up the hill from the beach. They hoped “to get away from work pressure and get into the rhythm of life,” Read says. “It’s much easier when you are not so concerned about the things that you need to be doing while being mentally checked out somewhere else.”

The family plan was open-ended: maybe they’d live in Costa Rica for six months, maybe a couple of years. Even on a tight budget, though, they couldn’t help but indulge in Costa Rica’s famous chocolate bars, best shared while swaying lazily in a hammock. Soon, they became curious about the chocolate’s origins.

::::

“We went on a tour of one of the cacao farms which was just cacao growing on a hillside and a little shack with chocolate-making equipment,” Weyandt says. “It was eye-opening that there wasn’t just one chocolate flavor. Different beans have different flavors and this whole world opened up.”

The couple befriended local farmers and started researching the chocolate-making process, from beans growing on trees to harvesting to the fermentation process. Along the way, they learned more about the economics of cacao farming, and realized they could pay the farmers a fairer price than the industrial chocolate market for high-quality beans.

Weyandt pitched the idea to Krog Street Market’s developer from Costa Rica over Skype.

The call was a success; by 2014, Xocolatl was up and running. Today, it’s one of the smallest chocolate factories in the country, converting raw beans to finished chocolate bars in about 250 square feet. Next door, a 100-square-foot storage room houses three tons of cacao beans, waiting to be stone-ground into smooth chocolate.

::::

Xocolatl’s bars are single origin with a base of just cacao and cane sugar. Added ingredients like coconut milk and vanilla-infused sea salt create more than a dozen varieties. “The way we make chocolate is more difficult because we do not include emulsifiers like soy bean oil,” Read says, “but we are happy to go through the harder process if it means it’s a food product we would be proud of making, selling and feeding our own kids.”

Weyandt and Read still travel to Central and South America often to source beans and visit farmers. Last summer, they went to the Peruvian Amazon with a group of craft chocolate-makers from around to world to take part in director Tim Shephard’s documentary Setting the Bar: A Craft Chocolate Origin Story. The forthcoming film delves into the economic realities of cacao farmers and the impact of deforestation in the Amazon.

Sourcing trips have usually been a couple’s vacation for Weyandt and Read, but in a few weeks they’ll head back to Nicaragua with both Ronan and Eva in tow — their first sourcing trip as a family. “In Costa Rica, Eva was growing up to be a jungle baby and by the time we left, Ronan was essentially swinging off rope vines,” Read says with a laugh. “This Nicaraguan trip will be a more low-key return to the jungle.”

  string(4925) "Back in 2004, Elaine Read and Matt Weyandt were working with the Democratic National Committee. He was on the West Coast, she was on the East, but when the two met at an organizing event, sparks flew. “Within the year, we knew we wanted to travel the world together, or at least start off with a chunk of it,” Read says. Despite spending only a few weeks in the same city, they got engaged and after the election went traveling together through Central America. “We kept each other up under reed roofs and in rain-drenched shacks dreaming big, vague dreams.”

The pair got married in Nicaragua and soon had their first child, a son named Ronan. After returning to Atlanta, Read started a career in international aid and Weyandt went to work as campaign manager for U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ 2012 reelection run. But eventually, both realized they were ready for a change.

“We felt we wanted to mix it up a little bit,” Weyandt says. “We had been doing these jobs and yet we were marching down this path. We talked about living outside the States again, but kept putting it off until we discovered that it will never be the right time. You just have to do it.”
And so, in 2013, right after their second child was born, they quit their jobs and moved to Costa Rica with 3-year-old Ronan and 4-month-old Eva. The family of four rented a little house in the rainforest, just up the hill from the beach. They hoped “to get away from work pressure and get into the rhythm of life,” Read says. “It’s much easier when you are not so concerned about the things that you need to be doing while being mentally checked out somewhere else.”

The family plan was open-ended: maybe they’d live in Costa Rica for six months, maybe a couple of years. Even on a tight budget, though, they couldn’t help but indulge in Costa Rica’s famous chocolate bars, best shared while swaying lazily in a hammock. Soon, they became curious about the chocolate’s origins.

::{img fileId="27744" desc="desc" styledesc="text-align: left;"}::

“We went on a tour of one of the cacao farms which was just cacao growing on a hillside and a little shack with chocolate-making equipment,” Weyandt says. “It was eye-opening that there wasn’t just one chocolate flavor. Different beans have different flavors and this whole world opened up.”

The couple befriended local farmers and started researching the chocolate-making process, from beans growing on trees to harvesting to the fermentation process. Along the way, they learned more about the economics of cacao farming, and realized they could pay the farmers a fairer price than the industrial chocolate market for high-quality beans.

Seizing an opportunity, they quickly developed the concept of [http://www.xocolatlchocolate.com|Xocolatl], a small-batch chocolate factory named for the Aztec word for a bitter drink brewed with cacao beans, said to be the etymological origin of chocolate (also, it conveniently has ATL at the end).

  string(2688) "Fellas, are you looking for that special someone to notice you? Well, look no further! Cousin Dan is here to give you a step-by-step guide to get you through this thang called love.

5) First off, get yourself a haircut, preferably a nice high and tight fade with a lil somethin' extra on top. Ladies love to run they hands up and down that prickly peach fuzz. Same goes for you girls out there — get yourself a haircut ... a "down there" cut. There's nothing a man loves more than a smooth pair of walkin' sticks!

4) Are you low on dough? Got a structured settlement but you lost J.G. Wentworth's digits? Don't panic! There's plenty of things you can do to make your boo feel like a million bucks for little to no money down! For example: coupons. This is some OG shit my dad taught me and it's straight-up genius. Write your girl a coupon for something like "One Free Massage" or "Won't Complain About Your Idiot Dog (for a week)." Be sure to take your time and word these carefully because my roommate apparently gave one to his girl that says, "I'll Do Your Laundry Over at My House Until the End of Time."

3) This next one is a tale as old as time. If your girl is anything like your mom, then you KNOW she loves to eat! Do somethin' special and take her to her favorite eatery, though if she's anything like my ex-girlfriend, then she don't know where the hell that is! So you might have to get creative.

2) Next on the list is gifts. Girls love getting gifts, almost as much as they love their pets. If you can't afford to go to Jared don't worry because I'm about to let you in on a real deal personal trade secret. Make her something: paint her a picture of kittens wearing bow ties, make her a necklace out of some vintage bottle caps or some shit, repurpose an old dog kennel into a reading nook. Whatever, she'll love it. But only if she can tell that you actually put some time and effort into it. You can't just go tying some old shoelaces together and call it a belt.

1) So here we are at No. 1, and what a journey it has been. If you have followed all of my advice so far then you are well on your way to the DANger zone. But there is still one piece of critical information that you need know. It will be the only thing that guarantees to transform your special lady into that freaky nympho-sex-badger that you've only fantasized about on the Internet. I am sorry, but this information cannot be revealed through mere words alone, it is something that MUST be experienced live and in the flesh. That experience is the one-man spectacle COUSIN DAN!

Well, look no further! Cousin Dan is here to give you a step-by-step guide to get you through this thang called love.

5) First off, get yourself a haircut, preferably a nice high and tight fade with a lil somethin' extra on top. Ladies love to run they hands up and down that prickly peach fuzz. Same goes for you girls out there — get yourself a haircut ... a "down there" cut. There's nothing a man loves more than a smooth pair of walkin' sticks!

4) Are you low on dough? Got a structured settlement but you lost J.G. Wentworth's digits? Don't panic! There's plenty of things you can do to make your boo feel like a million bucks for little to no money down! For example: coupons. This is some OG shit my dad taught me and it's straight-up genius. Write your girl a coupon for something like "One Free Massage" or "Won't Complain About Your Idiot Dog (for a week)." Be sure to take your time and word these carefully because my roommate apparently gave one to his girl that says, "I'll Do Your Laundry Over at My House Until the End of Time."

3) This next one is a tale as old as time. If your girl is anything like your mom, then you KNOW she loves to eat! Do somethin' special and take her to her favorite eatery, though if she's anything like my ex-girlfriend, then she don't know where the hell that is! So you might have to get creative.

2) Next on the list is gifts. Girls love getting gifts, almost as much as they love their pets. If you can't afford to go to Jared don't worry because I'm about to let you in on a real deal personal trade secret. Make her something: paint her a picture of kittens wearing bow ties, make her a necklace out of some vintage bottle caps or some shit, repurpose an old dog kennel into a reading nook. Whatever, she'll love it. But only if she can tell that you actually put some time and effort into it. You can't just go tying some old shoelaces together and call it a belt.

1) So here we are at No. 1, and what a journey it has been. If you have followed all of my advice so far then you are well on your way to the DANger zone. But there is still one piece of critical information that you need know. It will be the only thing that guarantees to transform your special lady into that freaky nympho-sex-badger that you've only fantasized about on the Internet. I am sorry, but this information cannot be revealed through mere words alone, it is something that MUST be experienced live and in the flesh. That experience is the one-man spectacle COUSIN DAN! With special guests xXgLaSsLuShxX, Go Dreamer, and Miss Britta on Fri., Feb. 14, at the Star Community Bar!       0,0,10    valentine2020  13077311 10428160                          Cousin Dan's Valentine's Day Top 5 "

"I just don't get it," he went on. "What's so romantic about sitting crammed in with a zillion other couples, eating an overpriced prix fix meal? Every restaurant in town is a shit show. None of us are at our best. It's just madness."

It seems a tad ungrateful for a restaurateur to turn up his nose at a guaranteed full house in this economy, but I don't think that's what our gracious friend was doing. Rather, it genuinely baffles industry folks why anyone would want to be in a restaurant on the busiest night of the year. New Year's Eve is almost as bad, but not quite as couple oriented.

I have to admit, I don't get it either. I know dining out can be a romantic experience, but on Valentine's Day? With the guarantee of a stressed waiter, busy kitchen, and tons of other googly-eyed couples around you? No thanks."

"I just don't get it," he went on. "What's so romantic about sitting crammed in with a zillion other couples, eating an overpriced prix fix meal? Every restaurant in town is a shit show. None of us are at our best. It's just madness."

It seems a tad ungrateful for a restaurateur to turn up his nose at a guaranteed full house in this economy, but I don't think that's what our gracious friend was doing. Rather, it genuinely baffles industry folks why anyone would want to be in a restaurant on the busiest night of the year. New Year's Eve is almost as bad, but not quite as couple oriented.

I have to admit, I don't get it either. I know dining out can be a romantic experience, but on Valentine's Day?

  string(3306) "Valentine's Day is Monday, but Hollywood withholds decent date movies for the weekend. The only new romances, if you can call them that, are the Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston comedy Just Go With It and the snarky CGI family flick Gnomeo & Juliet. One could make a case that this weekend, the most sexual tension takes place between Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell in The Eagle, but to be fair, it's more bromance than Brokeback.

If you want to take that certain special someone to the movies this weekend, may I suggest Mike Leigh's Another Year at the United Artists Tara Cinema? I'll admit, it's a counterintuitive choice, since much of the movie's kind of a bummer. You can trick your date into going by mentioning that three of the actors - Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton and David Bradley - have signficant supporting roles in the Harry Potter franchise. Here's three reasons why the unglamorous, downbeat character study qualifies as great Valentine's Day fare.

1. If you're in a relationship, it presents a great pair of role models. Broadbent and Ruth Sheen play Tom and Gerri, a longtime married couple with no major problems to speak of. On the brink of old age, they still have rewarding careers, good terms with their grown son, shared pastimes like urban gardens. Even their cheeky, corny sense of humor proves a perfect match. With their shaggy hair and pleasantly cluttered home, they're as companionable as a pair of dogs curled up in front of a fireplace. They function comparably to Sally Hawkins' role in Leigh's previous film, Happy-Go-Lucky, as a well-adjusted contrast to the miserable individuals in their orbit. We should all pair up as well as they have.

2. If you're single, it presents a terrifying cautionary tale. Another Year's tension comes from Tom and Gerri's friends, primarily Lesley Manville as Mary, an emotional train wreck. Nearing middle age and miserably single, Mary drinks heavily and confronts everyone in her vicinity with her crippingly low self-esteem. Tom and Gerri like and support her as an old friend, but Mary's bottomless-pit-of-need shtick begins to wear thin over the course of the film. There's a similar dynamic with Tom's old buddy Ken (Peter Wight), who's also unattached and gets weepily desperate in his cups. If you're trying to get someone to commit, Mary and Ken might light a fire under your reluctant partner: "You don't want to end up like them, do you? Maybe you should settle."


3. It's a good movie. As usual, Leigh delivers a marvelously well-acted slice of life movie. Even small roles like Staunton's turn as a gloomy woman who's depression practically has its own gravitational pull. Another Year rambles a bit, but snaps into focus with the final act, which involves a funeral and Manville's quiet attempts to bond with Tom's emotionally-closed off brother (Bradley). It's not one of Leigh's most eventful movies, but even audiences put off by its plotlessness will be impressed by the actors. And while Tom and Gerri offer something for your relationship to shoot for, the rest of the characters provide a case study in what not to do.


Or do you have a better suggestion?


Another Year. 4 stars. Directed by Mike Leigh. Stars Lesley Manville, Ruth Sheen. Rated PG-13. Now playing at United Artists Tara Cinema."

I already got a head start counting Melissa Young's freckles the other day when she stopped by Creative Loafing for our podcast interview. You can listen here.

Besides her Valentine's show at Smith's Olde Bar (1578 Piedmont Ave.), she talked about how she got exposed to old soul legend Betty Wright by sneaking into her dad's record collection as a kid. Young even features her dad on her new CD, Just Up the Road.

She also gives some tips on how guys can woo her on V-Day. It's not too late, fellas; she's single. But she's also a boss. The Greenville, N.C., native is releasing her new CD via her own independent label, Sugashack Music.

Here's a hint — there are more than 20, but less than 200.

I already got a head start counting Melissa Young's freckles the other day when she stopped by Creative Loafing for our podcast interview. You can listen here.

Besides her Valentine's show at Smith's Olde Bar (1578 Piedmont Ave.), she talked about how she got exposed to old soul legend Betty Wright by sneaking into her dad's record collection as a kid. Young even features her dad on her new CD, Just Up the Road.

She also gives some tips on how guys can woo her on V-Day. It's not too late, fellas; she's single. But she's also a boss. The Greenville, N.C., native is releasing her new CD via her own independent label, Sugashack Music.

So step your game up.

But guys, if you really want to impress her on Valentine's Day, a little originality goes a long way. And what fashionable girl wouldn't love a present that also happens to be one of the hottest items of the season? So assuming most of you men don't regularly read the fashion pages, here are a few stylish gift ideas that are sure to help dress and impress your one and only.

Pearls: There is nothing as timeless as a strand of pearls. And with this spring's '50s-inspired fashions, there isn't a more perfect necklace.

Lace and satin: The sensual fabrics are huge this season, and you can never go wrong with sexy lingerie.

Red-hot shoes: A little daring, yes, but to surprise her with her very own ruby slippers? She'll be happier than Dorothy in a field of poppies.

Charm bracelet: Another classic, it's the gift you can keep on giving. Add new charms for her birthday, anniversary, etc.

If you have a tip or have noticed a trend you think our resident fashionista should know about, e-mail your comments to product@creativeloafing.com."
