I always appreciate people who go the extra mile to make things really special. And when they do that, I never balk at paying a little more, or even a lot more. Here, they have a single source chocolate which they make into a number of delectable treats. The hot chocolate is to die for. The bars of chocolate are pricey, but excellent. I bought some gluten free cookies, as well. This isn’t your everyday kind of place, but when visiting or for something special, don’t miss it.

Ok, I am not a great fan of chocolate or jam, but still I am glad that I visited this store. Maria is presenting not only intersting choclate and jam but she explains rather well how to combine it with other food, where things are coming from etc. Thus it is fun to taste and to listen even for those that eat almost no chocolate or jam. A rather nice stop during a visit of little Havanna.

At 1637 SW Calle Ocho, Miami. It is not unreasonable to believe that it was an angel with a sweet tooth who planted the first cocoa berry tree in tropical South America in what is now Venezuela. Or, as Maria, the gracious proprietor of the boutique Guayaba y Chocolate expressed it - "Venezuela is a mess, but the chocolate remains. the best" And she is right. You can read into that all sorts of metaphors, but I chose only one - Despite whatever is going on in the world, chocolate in its most heavenly form remains, even if the bean of Venezuela, had to emigrate and settle on American soil. And like all wonderful things, it takes time and knowledge to appreciate. The boutique housed in the Futurama building in the Cuban center of Calle Ocho Miami offers a great variety of chocolate tasting. My favorite is the expresso coffee mixed with chocolate. Genially not one taste dominates the other. Maria makes both sing in wonderful harmony. The boxes of chocolate are artistically patterned and very original, making a great gift. The boutique also doubles as an antenna for elegant and tasteful souvenirs like the reasonably priced pictures of Calle Ocho by a local artist.

I read about this shop on Trip Advisor and couldn't resist visiting after touring Little Havana. We sampled some devine dark chocolate and then one of the co-owners gave us samples of a variety of jams, ranging from sweet to spicy. I'm not much of a jam person but only TSA regulations kept me from buying a jar or two. Instead, my sister and I settled for a couple of sandwich cookies stuffed with an out-of-this-world caramel spread. They were so good we bought two more to take to the Marlins game that night. We spent at least an hour chatting and learning about the chocolates and other items for sale, making it an altogether charming experience. It was also interesting because it shares space with an art gallery and a jeweler.

It’s a must-go. Their Venezuelan chocolate is absolutely amazing. Their affogato, I heard from someone, is even better. Their cold brew is just right. And their service, despite slightly spilling the aforementioned cold brew, makes it extremely easy to fall in love with.

This was the last stop on my "Food Tour in Miami"

Small owner operator with high quality chocolate tastings. The knowledge shared on the origin and differences in chocolate was very stimulating. I love establishments with a history lesson or some quirk that makes them much more interesting than simply visiting a popular chain. The building was an engaging mix of studio art, chocolates, and hipster vibe.

Nice little shop, unique as it's the only one in Little Havana, so a twist on sweets. Fun to look. Fun to eat.

Stopped in to escape the heat for s few minutes, happy that I did. They're not a bean-to-bar place, but the next best thing. The chocolates have a good texture and excellent flavor.

They have a selection of jams in flavor combinations that you don't see often, or at all.

If you're a lover of chocolate, give them a try.

Thanks so much for your kind review. We have good news: we are now a bean to bar shop! We stock fantastic little jewels made both in Venezuela and Florida from the finest Venezuelan beans. Come back to visit, we have moved a few meters West and are now at 1637 SW 8th Street, inside the Futurama Gallery.

Stumbled into the lovely little jewel-box of a sweet shop at the tail-end of an evening out on Calle Ocho and purchased a small assortment of sumptuous little chocolates to take home. Very good!

I visited Guayaba y Chocolate yesterday while I was on a walking tour of Little Havana. What a wonderful spot! The owner was very friendly and the shop has a large selection of high quality chocolate treats - and a few other treats as well such as jars of jam and some amaretti cookies. I bought a few chocolate items - some candied pineapple dipped in chocolate and a bar of chocolate with cayenne pepper. All very delicious. If you are in Little Havana please stop by as this is a very sweet spot!
