The staff is really nice and welcoming here. They will tell you about the chocolate and let you taste, without you feeling pushed to buy anything. The chocolate tasted amazing! I recommend people going here, even if it is just for a taste.

This is a great thing to do in cusco! First you learn a little about the plant, then select your bean, roast them, make kakao paste if you can manage and create your own chocolate. It is really a fun ecperience. Just for the complainers...More

Learn, taste, and make. We went through the entire process from selecting our beans, to roasting them, peeling, grinding, and making custom chocolates! What fun and a yummy takeaway.

We got our guide to book it for us. Otherwise sessions run three times a day at 11, 1 and I think 4pm. If you pop into the shop and book it then you should be ok
