What you'll do

The experience begins with a brief introductory talk to the world of cocoa, guided by a tasting map we will review the ingredients that make up a good chocolate as well as basic data on the geography, history and health benefits of this superfood. Then we will test how chocolate involves the 5 senses, tasting 3 chocolate bars made with cocoa from our country. We close with a comforting hot chocolate accompanied by a toast with cheese from the region and cocoa nibs.

Liliana

I am Lili, artist, chocolatier and certified taster, since 2015 I have been conducting chocolate tastings in Medellín, in places open to the public and private. It is what I enjoy doing most in my professional life: talk and try cocoa and chocolate from our country. A couple of months ago I moved life and business to Villa de Leyva, looking for a better climate for chocolate but also the proximity with tourists in the middle of an exquisite colonial environment. We open Villa Cacao, a "chocolate cafe" located a block and a half from the main square, to offer a complete portfolio of chocolate plus coffee and accessories. >> Welcome to discover Colombia through Chocolate, in an experience that involves the 5 senses << The tasting is conducted by me, personally. Spanish version available.

What's included

Food
Cocoa in all its forms, dark chocolate, hot chocolate and a toast with paipa cheese and cocoa nibs.
