Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Making Class


Price:

$109 / person


Times:

Friday - Sunday: 2pm


Length:

3.5 hours


Get down to the “nibby” gritty in our immersive bean-to-bar dark chocolate making class. You’ll start from scratch by selecting the single origin cacao beans you want to use, winnow them, grind and mill them, temper, pour, and then voila chocolate bars! This class is will set you up with the skills to actually make bean-to-bar chocolate at home with your own equipment. This class also includes an extensive tasting of the chocolate we make here at Raaka.

 

This class is HANDS ON. You'll go home with a bag of your own mini dark chocolates, an understanding of cacao origins and flavor profiles, and bean-to-bar chocolate making, not to mention happy, chocolatey memories!

 

NOTE: Due to the structure of the class, chocolate making happens in groups of 2. If the class is fully booked and you're flying solo, you may have to team up with another class participant for the class.

 

"We had a great time doing the tour and Chocolate bar making class. Ann was an amazing guide and was able to answer all questions asked of her. The whole experience was a tremendous amount of fun and I was surprised with how much we learned when I was all over. Highly recommend."

"We did a chocolate making class and had a truly amazing time with the team. The class is very hands on and you’ll learn a whole lot about chocolate. It was a perfect company offsite."

"Great class experience. I went with my friend and our instructor/chef was Esteban (hope i'm spelling that correctly) and we couldn't have had a better time. The chocolate was delicious and we learned so much. Definitely would go back for one of their other classes."

"This chocolate class provided by experts in the chocolate business was excellent. To begin with, from having a great knowledgeable chef to learning about making chocolate to actually making your own chocolate was fantastic!! The best part with the knowledge acquired you will feel confident to make chocolate at home and impress your friends and family!!"

"The bean to bar class is insane. You really do start with the beans (picking between Ugandan or Tanzanian with your partner) and go through cracking and winnowing, grinding and conching, tempering and molding. Toni was a wonderful teacher. We got to try cacao fruit juice!"

"Such a fun experience! I took the Bean to Bar class taught by Esteban and was blown away by how in-depth the class went. You are literally making chocolate bars from scratch (cracking the beans, grinding it into chocolate paste, tempering the chocolate, and molding the bars)..."
