Boing Boing tv Best of 2008: TCHOcolate Magical Mystery Tour Trilogy

Continuing in our retrospective of favorite BBtv episodes from 2008, today’s feature is an encore presentation of our three-part visit to the delicious, trippy, techy TCHO factory in San Francisco. The “chocolate for a new generation” startup was hacked together by a space shuttle technologist, Timothy Childs, and the founder of Wired, Louis Rosetto.

Part one is embedded above, parts two and three below, and here are direct MP4 links to all: one, two, three. Snip from the original post:

In part one of Boing Boing tv‘s multi-part exploration of Tcho, we begin in the lab, and learn about the origins of chocolate: it’s a weird looking fruit with biological roots in faraway tropical lands. How this fruit is cultivated, harvested, and cured determines the flavor of the final product, and we learn about the hedonics — the sensual nuances — of this exotic and temperamental element.
