Chocolate Pairing Experience

This experience is an exploration of single origin coffees/teas and chocolates, and how to pair the two to enhance the flavors and enjoyment of each. We start the experience with a coffee cupping or tea tasting where each participant will learn and do their own cupping or tea brew. We compliment the coffees and teas with a curated chocolate pairing, where participants will learn how to taste chocolate like a pro, to maximize the tasting experience. This will be accompanied by a light treat made by a local business to cap off the class.
