Ce vei face

You'll learn the entire process from tree to bar, making chocolate from scratch: roasting, grinding, tempering then molding. With tasting all along the way.
Starting with the trees we'll talk about cultivation and harvesting and the role of fermentation and drying in the flavours of the chocolate. Then we'll make chocolate. You'll be grinding beans in our cast iron hand mills and winnowing the old fashioned way, then we'll be sharing the secrets of tempering before the delicate practice of molding the bars. Puerto Viejo has a long long history of cacao production and we'll share that history with you, talking about the characters and stories of the area as we teach you how to make great chocolate. You'll be joining our happy, tiny team of 4. There will be lots to learn and taste, from flavour development to label design, this is a full experience! This experience is the most hands on in the area, you will get chocolate on you!
Other things to note
We are a short walk from Puerto Viejo along the beautiful black sand beach of Playa Negra. Our farm is a forest of fruit, native and nut trees and the coolness of lush jungle is refreshing.

Making chocolate is an art, a delicious one. The Puerto Viejo area has been growing cacao for over 400 years and now you can experience how chocolate is made by hand, as it has been for centuries, and as it is now. The smells, textures and tastes of the chocolate making process will give you a truly authentic appreciation for the most loved sweet in the world. We have been growing organic cacao on our farm for over three decades and have been producing our award winning chocolate onsite. In this 3 hour experience you’ll participate in all aspects of the production, from roasting to wrapping.

I’ll be working with Sam Olvera, a chocolate maker and connoisseur specializing in the art of cacao bean fermentation. Sam will sometimes host classes, we’re really lucky to have her join us!

Unde vei fi

We'll be at Talamanca Chocolate in Playa Negra, Puerto Viejo. Part of our farm is a Botanical Garden, open to the public. After your experience why not tour the garden: we grow over 160 varieties of tropical fruit and nut trees. Our farm is home to many many native animals, amphibians, birds and reptiles. We often see sloths and toucans right out of the window as we make the chocolate. We're an easy 7 minute bike ride, from the center of town.

Ancel has so much knowledge to share. I learned more than I could have imagined about cacao, the tree, it's history, so much. The farm is a lively place with hens, roosters, ducks, geese dogs all providing entertainment too.

We learned so much and went home on a chocolate high! Ancel was a great teacher and it was a fun and comfortable group. The farm and especially her puppies made the experience even more fun! Definitely recommended

Very informative and hands-on experience. I learned so much about cacao and it’s many uses. Our entire family enjoyed our time with Ancel. She is very knowledgeable and shares her information in an engaging manner.

I had a great time in the cacao kitchen today! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and gained a deeper relationship with the magical cacao process. I made a chocolate bar from the raw beans to the finished bar and it was delicious! Ancel and Sam (?) were amazing teachers! Definitely worth the visit.

Wow. Don’t skip this tour. Ancel has so much knowledge about the area and the gorgeous cocoa. We had the most amazing experience and would highly recommend it. Plus the chocolate is yummy. We really felt the experience was very personal.
