good quality chocolate: hand-crafted artisan truffles and fine chocolate bars from around the world

Fall 2017 season. Chocolate tasting classes. 

"Discover Chocolate! Introduction to chocolate tasting." chocolate tasting class at basic level

Cocoa Bean Shoppe, a chocolate boutique, offers a selection of

premium single-origin, "bean-to-bar" chocolates for tasting, eating, and baking.

We want to share our passion for the fne chocolates – and that is where the idea for chocolate tasting events came.

Our chocolate tasting event is a 60-minutes class that focuses on the experience of tasting, 

the variety of chocolates, and, taking into the close attention, facts and information about 

where cocoa trees grow and how chocolate is made from roasted cocoa beans. 

In a class, we discuss classic and modern chocolate styles and learn names 

of the famous chocolate makers and chocolatiers.

Putting all together: a tasting experience and information (as we like to do at wine tastings),

helps us enjoy the chocolates which we like and, hopefully, lead us to discover new chocolates!

Learn, taste and enjoy!
