While booking a spa morning for our daughter I noticed the chocolate school at the museum next door. I signed up for the 9AM class the next day to coincide with her appointments. I was the only one that showed up, but Kenny gave the class anyway. I love food and cooking. Kenny really taught me a lot. Eating a... More

We live in Granada so get to enjoy lots of interesting eateries--some of which are quite nice. Went in to Choco on a bit of a lark for their breakfast "buffet" and it was fine. Lots of choices, a little pricey for Granada and our tastes, but nothing to write home about.

Ismael provided an entertaining lesson in chocolate making for my friend and me. Aztec, Mayan and European chocolate drinks plus making a chocolate bar with our own choices of ingredients for flavoring.

We found the $20 class to be a little pricey, but decided when it Rome, learn to make chocolate from bean to bar. We had fun roasting beans, and making chocolate drinks and finally our chocolate bars. Ismael is very fun and interactive teacher. He kept asking us questions about what we learned, I feel like I really can explain... More

This was an entertaining stop in Granada. While the price is very high for Nicaragua, $18 or $19 per person, I would still recommend it for any chocolate fans. It was fun to roast the cocoa beans, peel them and grind them into a paste. We were able to sample different chocolate drinks which were delicious. It was just me... More

We took the 4pm class with Kenyn (pronounced Kenny). We were pretty tired from the heat but from the start Kenyn kept us entertained while educating us and taking us through the entire process of how to make cocoa step by step. They even have a Mini cocoa plantation to show you what the plants look like! We roasted our... More

We stayed in Granada for only a day and a half and the ChocoMuseo chocolate making class was a highlight of nearly two weeks in Nicaragua overall. You make chocolate from roasting the beans and cracking them by hand, to grounding them, and then mixing with various ingredients. All the time the chef/teacher instructs as to the growth of cacao...
