We loved it
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Went there on a tour with Papa Jose(funniest guide ever) and as we were killing time. He took us to the museum to try chocolates and liqueurs. A very nice guy explained to us how you obtain cocoa, took us at the back to see the plants in their garden and just took a minute to tell us plenty of stuff, just being so nice! I’m a big chocolate lover and we got to try a lot of things, including cocoa tea which was really nice. We did buy some chocolates and teas not sure if I want to eat them as they’re just such cute memories, looking good in condiment jars on our shelf at the minute(could easy buy the whole shop). Thank you guys for a lovely experience. They took their time to show us around and it just felt so genuine and lovely. Would’ve loved a workshop but we didn’t have enough time for that. I find it funny how so many people love chocolate but do they have a clue what it comes from and what the process is? I’ve always wondered and I find it funny how such a weird tree gives you the most delicious thing ever. Now I know a little bit more. Definetly recommend ❤️

Enjoy the chocolates

Good chocolate samples and merchandise to buy. They also give a short, but informative, complimentary tour of the coffee process.

This place is a tourist trap for sure. Guides will always bring you here - can only be because they get a huge cut. There is another place call Kah Kow nearby. Far superior experience, great staff, get to see chocolate making in action and also sell cacao products and chocolates at a very reasonable price.

Tourist trap
Nov. 2019 • Couples
I like chocolate very much and fell pray to the invitation to step inside. Immediately, we were set upon by a person pushing samples, and who then kept pressuring us as we walked around. There's some interesting information about cocoa, but no doubt this is a store camoflaged as a museum. Prices were very high!

Nice museum/store with tasting of all kinds!
Sep. 2019 • Solo
The entrance is free and you get to try all their products. You must know they add sweetener to the chocolate tea. They are very kind and helpful! I loved my visit! The guide I met at the Plaza Colon (Mr Peralta) gave me a tour around the city and this was one of the two stores we came in. The tour was very thorough and detailed for only $20, I recommend him! I bough here some chocolate tea to take home! Check out the Heart on the entrance floor at the sidewalk! La entrada es gratis y tienen muestras de todo. Debes saber que endulzan el té cuando te dan la muestra. Son muy amables y dispuestos para ayudarte! Me encantó mi visita! El guía turístico que conocí en la Plaza Colon (Sr. Peralta) me dio un recorrido muy completo y detallado de muchos lugares y este fue uno de ellos...por solo $20 lo recomiendo! Compré un poco de té de chocolate para llevar a casa!

It's Chocolate, What's Not to Like?
Mar. 2019 • Friends
We were with a local friend who had a bit of a time constraint, so we didn't go on the tour. But we sat and watched the chocolate-making process while we drank a cup of their delicious, rich, traditional hot chocolate. A good selection of chocolate products, besides mugs and t-shirts for sale. Some of it seemed a bit pricey to me.

Friendly staff no over-bearing pressure to buy
Nov. 2018 • Couples
Feel free to walk in and learn a bit about chocolate. But of course you will want to try free samples - especially of the liqueurs. Our host let us try as many as we wanted, and never once pressed us to buy. A rarity from what we saw in this city. We brought home a bottle of the liqueur and bottle of bark chips and spices to make Mamajuana at home. Two locations, almost just around corner form each other
