Group Workshops and Chocolate Tastings are available upon request, drop us a line if you would like to come a visit!
Workshops can be tailored to suit your interests and budgets including:
Micro-factory-tour & Tasting – a mini intro to the chocolate making process and full tasting of all our bars, see where we make our chocolate from the bean! Approx 45 min in length, €50 Euros per group, (max 8 people per group). As we’re a working production area we can only host workshops when we’re not knee deep in chocolate making ourselves so it’s best to get in touch at least 1 week in advance to book in.
Bean-to-Bar workshop – learn about the process of making chocolate from the bean, about chocolate growing and sourcing, roasting to conching to tempering. Bring a tupperware to bring home what we make. Approx 1.5-2 hours
Raw Chocolate making – learn about the difference between Raw and Roasted chocolate and how to make raw chocolate using tools you have at home.
Seasonal workshops – Easter Eggs, Santas Sleigh, Mothers’ Day – we offer themed workshops for adults or children (or a mix!) where everyone participates and goes home with plenty of goodies.
We also have extra events and public open days from time to time so follow us on Facebook & Twitter and we’ll post what we’re up to. To book a workshop or party anytime of the year, gather a group of 3 to 8 adults or up to 10 children (our space is small so any more gets a bit too cozy!) and get in touch!
Some lovely words….
