The Gianduja Chocolate workshop in Quito, Ecuador is now offering chocolate tastings for up to 8 people per session. In the sessions of approximately one hour, we'll taste a number of chocolates from different local producers, and of different percentages. We'll try at least one offering from each of the following:
Other non-branded chocolates made in Ecuador will also be available for tasting. And beyond tasting, we'll go into details about each of these Ecuadorian chocolate companies' or brands, the chocolates they are making, the methods they are using in production, and other interesting details. You will learn about the issues surrounding Ecuador's "fine flavor" cacao Arriba Nacional, CCN-51, cooperatives, and certifications such as Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance.
The tastings are by appointment only and have a cost of $10 per person, minimum 4 persons. The sessions will take place at the Gianduja Chocolate workshop located on Av. 10 de Agosto in Quito, Ecuador. Call us on 09 852 4773 for more information and to schedule your tasting now!
