What you'll do

“At no other time has Nature concentrated such a wealth of valuable nourishment into such a small space as in the cacao bean.” Alexander von Humboldt

It was in the south of Mexico, more than 3,000 years ago when the taste and properties of cacao have been discovered.
Join us in this tasting experience where past and present converge with a whole cultural background and a bunch of flavors and aromas.

We will walk you through the history of chocolate while we use our senses to perceive a variety of Mexican chocolate in different presentations, from the way the Mayas and Aztecs consumed it, to the chocolate that conquered Europe.

We will try some of our favorite handmade chocolate produced by Mayan communities in artisanal and sustainable ways.
