Educational and tasty!

Very enjoyable - learned a lot about the history of chocolate and were able to participate in various stages of the chocolate making process. Especially enjoyed trying a chocolate tea made from the shells of cocoa beans and the Mexican hot chocolate at the end. Great family activity. 18 year old autistic son enjoyed the experience - small, quiet setting with personalized attention.

This was a great educational opportunity to learn about the history of chocolate going back to the Aztec era in Central Mexico. Our chocolate historian and culinary director was quite knowledgeable and we enjoyed learning the history of chocolate and how to make our own chocolate.

The Bean to Bar Chocolate Workshop was great! Our teacher was extremely knowledgeable, and also very friendly and welcoming. We learned about the history of chocolate, and got to make a variety of different types of chocolate that were popular throughout history (starting with the Mayans and Aztecs, and then tracing the globalization of chocolate production to Europe). Everything was delicious! Highly recommended.

Senses instead of adrenaline
Bea_A
, Sep 2021
We loved our whole experience from learning about growing and harvesting cocoa beans to roasting beans, grinding beans, trying husk tea, making chocolate, and sampling hot chocolate. This was a welcome change for our teens who usually love adrenaline adventures to a more sensual experience (also great for someone with a broken arm...). Our guide was funny, knowledgeable, patient, and just made the whole experience great for all of us. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who loves chocolate! We took so much of our "home"-made and self decorated chocolate home and it is so delicious.....

Ok, not great.

We are a little COVID crazy but before starting the table was not wiped down. It was very informative, but a little disorganized. His broken English was ok but not great. He gave a good history of chocolate, the production and consumption worldwide. He didn’t realize his hot plate was not hot enough to roast the beans. So he took them to the kitchen and cooked them and brought them back. We used 2 processes to grind the beans, that was cool. Made a coco tea out of the husks and then more of a hot chocolate drink. Then a bowl of prepared warm chocolate appeared in front of each of us and we filled a mold.

Great Cocoa Drinks and Chocolate History
Thomas_K
, Feb 2020
Did the Bean to Bar workshop and it was great! Juan was great and took us through the whole process of where the cocoa bean originated, what the pods looks like, how it’s harvested all the way on how it gets made into the chocolate we eat today! We got 3 different hot cocoa drinks that also had a history of how they originated and the different variations. You got to shell beans, grind beans and help in all aspects of the drink making. At the end we each got to make out own chocolates which was fun!

Tasting freshly roasted cocoa beans

The class was so much more than we expected. Erickthe explained history and the process of chocolate in such and easy to understand and relaxed manner. Everyone took part in making various historic drinks which were so basic but delicious and then the chocolate candy topped off our class. Erik is patient and seems to really enjoy what he is doing which made the class quite enjoyable.
