What you'll do

The Chocolate Making Workshop It may not be exactly the "Willy Wonka" experience, but this opportunity is a golden ticket to the world of artisan organic chocolate making, from bean to bonbon and bar. Learn about the process of cultivating, fermenting, and drying, peeling, toasting and grinding cacao seeds, as well as much you may not have known about the history of chocolate and its benefits to your health. You will have a chance to learn the art of tempering and molding, and making your own chocolate treats, and of course, you'll get to sample the goodies and take home a bar you have made. Tours can be arranged by your local AirBnB Host or privately. Minimum of two persons, and groups no larger than 5 persons per workshop. $45 per person. Children over age 8 are welcome. For larger groups, we can arrange a demonstration and tasting, that is not "hands-on".
