Cocoa Bean



39 South Main Street, Pittsford, NY

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

Spring 2017 season. Chocolate tasting classes. 

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 chocolate – 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 close attention, the facts and information about where cocoa trees grow and how chocolate is made from roasted cocoa beans. In a class we will discuss classic and modern chocolate styles and learn new names for chocolate makers and chocolatiers.

Putting together all, 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!
