Did you know that chocolate offers the same complexity as wine, beer and coffee? Did you know that 70% of the world’s cacao comes from four countries in West Africa?

Join Ana Maria, chocolate maker and founder of Rrraw chocolate company, on a bean-to-bar chocolate making retreat, to find out more about where chocolate comes from and how it’s made. Learn about cacao and the difference between craft and store-bought chocolate and see how chocolate is made from the bean to the bar. Discover how to taste and appreciate chocolate through a customized tasting and try your hand at tempering and moulding chocolates.

This is an exploratory journey through single origin cacao from different countries, and all chocoholics and taste explorers are welcome.
