What you'll do

You will have a chocolate class and you will be able to taste the different products of chocolate production: cacao fruit, roasted and unroasted seed, cacao nibs, cocoa powder and ancestral cacao beverage. Then... hands into chocolate... you wil learn the way we make our modern chocolates. We will start with pure cacao to obtain cacao paste of concentrations from 70%, 75%, 85% and 100%. With this you will make different kinds of chocolates combining with fresh local ingredients and our own chocolate fillings and then just create your own chocolates. Finally we will give ecofriendly packaging materials so that you take home your own chocolate creations and share your souvernir from Costa Rica.
