If you love chocolate, and even if you don't, you will enjoy this workshop! It covers the cocoa making process from beginning to end, the old fashioned way - by hand! You get to experience what's its like to process the beans, and to taste them in their natural state. You also get to make your own chocolates, with lots of yummy local add ins. The staff is awesome, very polite & friendly.

I love chocolate but knew very little about the steps to get from the fruit to the final product. This cooking class provided a succinct lesson in chocolate refining and a short history of cocoa in Mayan culture. I really enjoyed being able to try a bean at every stage of the process and you can taste how the chocolate flavor profile develops with every step.

Not a hands on workshop as expected. The instructor was pleasant but lectured most of the time. If you want a history of the cocoa and process with 12 people doing different tasks then this workshop is for you. It just wasn’t our thing.

My daughter(20) and I really enjoyed the Bean to Bar class. The staff were all very polite and a joy to be around. We had Josaline as our class teacher. You will make your own chocolate bar with a wide variety of things to put in the chocolate. You will then learn a great deal about the cocoa bean. Along the way you will roast, peel, and grind the beans. You will also get to taste pure cocoa. We also made drinks that the Mayans made with this bean. I will never eat another piece of chocolate without remembering this class. I highly recommend you take the time for this activity if you are in Antigua.

We learned a lot about the history of chocolate making -- and we REALLY enjoyed the free samples. We bought both chocolate and the cocoa flavored cardamon tea, both of which were awesome. Our friends did the chocolate making and had a great experience. Definitely worth stopping in, even to browse
