Travel with us to the origin of cocoa
Come with us on a culinary and delicious taste journey through Ecuador with high-quality original chocolate. Enjoy a delicious variety of the finest Ecuadorian chocolates with the exciting aromas of the different regions of Ecuador.
Archaeologists have been able to trace the origins of the cacao tree to Ecuador, where they found evidence of cacao domestication at least 5,300 years ago in the Mayo-Chinchipe culture. Immerse yourself in a world of foggy rainforests, come along to brightly colored cocoa plantations, to the Ecuadorians, who lovingly make delicious chocolate from high-quality cocoa beans.
In our approx. 60 to 90 minute workshops we will turn you into real chocolate experts accompany you on a mindful inner journey with all your senses away from stress towards inner peace! In this (online) tasting, we will introduce you to the world of fine chocolate, provide you with background knowledge as well as tips and tricks on how to really enjoy chocolate. Get ready for a mindful inner journey that will do you good and let you forget the stressful everyday life for a moment.
