Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Cusco
This class was awesome! We learned so much about the history of chocolate and different types of chocolate. Yilmar kept it fun and interactive while being very informative! Would highly recommend. You also get a 10% discount on all chocolates in the museum after taking the class.

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Cusco
I would highly recommend this tour! It was highly informative, fun, and at the end we left with yummy chocolates. Our host's name was Javier, and he was very engaging and made it a truly memorable day! If you can, try the white chocolate with chili in it - out of this world.

We had a wonderful time. Our teacher, Yilmar, was not only hilarious, but very educational. Making our own candy gave us an opportunity to share our experience with others. Fantastic!

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Cusco
Such an awesome workshop and something different (and cool!) to do in the midst of touring Cusco. Hey Arnold was hilarious and very informative. My husband and I had a BLAST and the chocolate was to die for. Would do this again and recommend everyone try it out. 20 out of 10 stars!

Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Workshop in ChocoMuseo Cusco
My sister and I had a really great time at this class. It can be a little tricky to find, because there are so many chocomuseo shops in Cusco, but if you go to the southwest side of Plaza al Regocijo and turn onto calle Garcilaso you'll see a set of stairs on your right. The museum is up the stairs and to the back. Also, make sure you bring a bottle of water with you bc trying all that chocolate can make you thirsty. This class was a whole lot of fun. There were about 12 people in the kitchen. Arnold, our instructor, was hilarious. He had us try coco beans in different states, gave us a ton of information about how chocolate is made (did you know that it's mosquitoes that pollinate cocoa pods? guess they're good for something) and try a bunch of different types of chocolate, then go through the process of roasting, peeling, and grinding beans. You use these to make a couple different types of hot cocoa. Finally you get to pick a mold and make your own chocolate. There are a ton of toppings to choose from and you wind up with a huge amount. The chocolate takes about a half hour in the freezer, so you can either go grab a bite at the soup place next door or just relax in the square. This is definitely a great way to spend an evening in Cusco!
