Qué harás

We like to think of this experience as a "historical edible journey". We will begin by sharing the way in which the indigenous Mesoamericans related to cacao (cocoa). The taste of their traditional drink, their uses and customs. We will taste roasted, raw and praline cacao beans.
During the colonization of America, cacao and chocolate experienced new flavors as they mixed with the European culture. We will sample each step of the process until we get to the chocolate we know today.
There is a hand tempering live demonstration and we will discuss the science behind contemporary chocolate, as we will show you the crystals in untempered chocolate.
The end of our journey comes with our desire to experiment with new flavors. We are hunters of local, fresh, tropical and organic flavors. This in an invitation to a culinary adventure. To discover new flavor combinations with our carefully hand craft craft organic chocolate.

We are two urban chocolatiers, loving every minute of research and experimentation. Our culinary experience is wide, we are two passionate artists with a love for food. Jenny had the opportunity of being thought by a local french pastry chef and worked for important local handcraft french restaurants and patisseries while Carolina has being reading all food related articles and books ever since she was a child. Both food designers for local festivals as Bon Art Petit and Private Exhibitions.

A few years ago Cacao & Chocolate became our passion and focus. Our chocolate is handcrafted, we operate a bean to bar chocolate lab using organic award-winning cacao beans from Costa Rica and look for the best local organic ingredients as pairings for our chocolate.

We both believe food is a wonderful vehicle to learn about culture and history.

This was such a fun exploration into the world of chocolate! We learned a lot while getting to have fun goofing around with the other folks on the tour. Plus we got chocolate to take with us!

Fun and very informative! Wonderful hosts! The place was a little hard to find and I wish we had been able to take more chocolate home... but it was so yummy!

Before this tour, we weren’t the biggest fans of chocolate, but the tour allowed us to appreciate its beauty more. Carolina and Jenny made us feel very comfortable, and their space was very cute. We learned so much about the origins of chocolate, as well as the process of making it. Overall, the chocolate was delicious, and the overall experience was fascinating. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Carolina & Jenny provided the most awesome and informative chocolate experience! They were very passionate about their work and has an answer for every question I had. They were so welcoming and are true artists and experts with chocolate. Carolina took the time to explain the history of chocolate in detail and even showed me around a part of their building (which is so beautiful). This is the best personalized chocolate experience in Costa Rica. I booked this experience the night before (very late) and they still were able to accommodate me!

I’m not much of a chocolate eater but Carolina and Jenny made me feel very welcomed and I learned so much for the time spent there. So even if you don’t like chocolate it’s a great learning experience and they both were very knowledgeable.
