What we’ll do

As a sort of meditation, you will zone in with all your senses to discover chocolate at a whole new level. You will have opportunity to take personal notes and to discuss your findings with each sample. Similar to a wine tasting, you will learn to discern varying cacao contents and subtle flavors, by taking the time to tune all of your senses to the process of Chocolate Tasting.

What else you should know

Guests will sample the chocolate and learn about artisan chocolate and how to taste and discern nuances in dark chocolate, and later have an opportunity to purchase products in the shop.

What I’ll provide

Samples of Chocolate made by Samaritan Xocolata. Palate cleansers such as apple, crackers, soda water. (please indicate if gluten-free or if you have allergies).

What to bring

You do not need to bring anything specific to enjoy the tasting.

Where you'll be

Samaritan Xocolata is an artisan chocolate factory rooted approximately 4,000 ft. in the clouds of Canaan Rivas, a small village nestled at the base of Mt Chirripo, the highest peak in Costa Rica. The quaint chocolate shop sits just north of the village center. We will be on the patio in the Chocolate Salon.
