This was an incredible experience. Patricia and her staff were very kind and knowledgeable. The chocolate in all its various forms was delicious and we learned so much about how it can be used - even medicinally. The small group size made the experience personal and fun. I recommend without hesitation!

This was a really fun and unique experience in which we had the opportunity to make chocolate bars, starting from the cacao bean. (bean to bar) My husband and I took 5 of our friends to LA with us to enjoy this experience together and we all had such a great time with our amazing hosts, Alexandra and Patricia. We met at a really cute chocolate cafe/shop and had the opportunity to taste a variety of delicious chocolates, enjoy a hot/cold chocolate drink of our choice, roast cacao beans over fire, peel the beans, crush and grind the beans over stone, add toppings and adjust sweetness to our individual preference. While we were waiting for our chocolate bars to set, Patricia made us delicious cocktails. I highly recommend this fun and unique experience if you like chocolate. Even if you don't like chocolate, you will probably enjoy this experience! It was so much fun, I'd actually love to do it again with more family and friends. Thank you Patricia & Alexandra!!

Patricia and Alexandra were wonderful hosts. Patricia's passion and knowledge for the choclate making experience was phenomenol. She went in depth to explain to us about the history of chocolate, we had the chance to roast the nuts and grind the nuts ourselves! It was a once in a lifetime experience and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience

This experience was beyond my expectation. You will know chocolate like never before. Patricia teaches you the art and intricacies of crafting artisanal chocolates while making it fun and exciting. This is perfect to do by yourself or with friends. Totally worth the price!

If you like chocolate at all, you must do this experience. You literally eat top quality chocolate all day while making your own chocolate. You roast cocoa beans, crush them, sip chocolate drinks, and laugh with the group all day long. Patricia's shop is so unique and wonderful. She hand selects her beans and makes sure the farms are sustainable and the workers are paid a fair wage. She cares about her craft and by the time you leave, you will too.
