Hello! Thank you for writing this nice review. We hope to see you again soon!
Ok, not great.
, Jan 2021
We are a little COVID crazy but before starting the table was not wiped down. It was very informative, but a little disorganized. His broken English was ok but not great. He gave a good history of chocolate, the production and consumption worldwide. He didn’t realize his hot plate was not hot enough to roast the beans. So he took them to the kitchen and cooked them and brought them back. We used 2 processes to grind the beans, that was cool. Made a coco tea out of the husks and then more of a hot chocolate drink. Then a bowl of prepared warm chocolate appeared in front of each of us and we filled a mold.
Great Cocoa Drinks and Chocolate History
, Feb 2020
Did the Bean to Bar workshop and it was great! Juan was great and took us through the whole process of where the cocoa bean originated, what the pods looks like, how it’s harvested all the way on how it gets made into the chocolate we eat today! We got 3 different hot cocoa drinks that also had a history of how they originated and the different variations. You got to shell beans, grind beans and help in all aspects of the drink making. At the end we each got to make out own chocolates which was fun!

Tasting freshly roasted cocoa beans
, Feb 2020
The class was so much more than we expected. Erickthe explained history and the process of chocolate in such and easy to understand and relaxed manner. Everyone took part in making various historic drinks which were so basic but delicious and then the chocolate candy topped off our class. Erik is patient and seems to really enjoy what he is doing which made the class quite enjoyable.
Excellent Experience

Fun afternoon

My husband and I decided to do this one day when it looked a bit overcast. It did not disappoint! Very interesting and fun! Lots of hands on and Erik our instructor was terrific! Highly recommend.
A Chocolate Class Like None Other
, Apr 2019
I signed up for this workshop thinking it would be a fun way to spend the afternoon. I read that it would provide a history of chocolate but I was amazed at how informative it was as well as fun, messy, and tasty all in one. As a teacher, I love learning new things everyday, and look forward to learning more about the history and culture of places that I visit. This satisfied this and so much more. I don't want to give everything away, but I did learn more about chocolate and its history with the Mexican culture for the past hundreds of years. But it wasn't just sitting there listening to the facts. We experienced grinding the beans as it was done hundreds of years ago as well as a more modern way. We tasted tea, chocolate drinks as it was prepared hundreds of years ago as well as hot chocolate that we know today. Through all of this learning, we were able to make chocolate candy to take home with us for souvenirs. The only negative was that the souvenirs never made it home. Nope. It was eaten the next day for Easter. Gia was a great presenter of the class. While she apologized in the beginning for not knowing English perfectly, she did an awesome job. She was pleasant, personable, and did a great job connecting with the six of in the class coming from different cities in the United States. Do I recommend this? Absolutely! And on our next trip to PV, I plan to book one of their other classes.
