Making for Families (Ages 7-13)Beginner • 3 hours
Each child aged 7-13 should have an adult to accompany them. This hands-on chocolate making class will teach you and your child how chocolate is made through demonstration and hands-on activities. We’ll start by learning about how cacao is grown, harvested, and fermented on the farm, including tasting fresh cacao fruit. From there we will learn how our team selects the best beans to turn into chocolate. Then we’ll sort the beans and roast them, and turn already-roasted beans into cocoa nibs. We’ll grind these nibs in a mini-melanger to turn them into chocolate. Our teachers will demonstrate chocolate tempering, and each guest will mold and wrap their chocolate bars in foil and seal it in an envelope wrapper. Guests leave with a few tastes from class, a small bag of cocoa nibs, and three molded and packaged chocolate bars.
