Puerto Viejo hands on chocolate making class. From bean to bar, get chocolatey!
If you’ve ever wanted to make your own chocolate or learn all the wonderful intricacies and processes involved in making the world’s favourite treat, this is the class for you!
In 3 hours you will travel through time: from the history of the tree, to the myths, to the very real and important part cacao and chocolate played in the cultures of Mesoamérica. And of course you’ll also be making chocolate. From trying the raw fruit to roasting, grinding and separating the shell from the nibs you’ll be working just like a professional making award winning chocolate. You’ll learn some of the amazing medicinal uses of chocolate before making your own chocolate ‘medicine’ to take home. Finally, you’ll temper freshly poured molten chocolate and you’ll make your own bar to wrap and enjoy later.
There are chocolate tours all over the world, but this is a real hands on experience - you will get chocolate on you!
A fun and delicious class!
During our time together we will visit cacao trees and learn about their history, culture and medicinal uses. Then we’ll return to our chocolate making kitchen where we will learn about fermentation and the magical processes of turning a cacao seed into a chocolate bar. We will make a bar from beans from the farm, covering every part of the process in exactly the way we make chocolate everyday. You’ll leave with roasted beans and fine chocolate!Sample Menu
