“Not open two days running”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Came here twice (3rd and 4th Jan) within the opening hours chalked on a blackboard outside. The gate was locked and no sign or explanation of when it will be open again. They could at least have chalked on the board an explanation!!!

ChaqchaoChocolates, General Manager at Chaqchao Organic Chocolates, responded to this review, January 6, 2014
Hello,

We are so sorry to have inconvenienced you! Our shop was closed briefly during the holidays to make some much needed renovations. Well we did announce this online, we are now aware that the sign we posted outside our store was removed or fell at some point during this time. This was an oversight on our part, and we apologize for your trouble! If you find yourself in our area again, we would like to offer you a free drink of your choosing as a small token of our sincerity. Please just mention the phrase "trip advisor review" to any of our staff, and your drink order is on us. We'll hang onto that offer for you or any other inconvenienced customer who reads this until February 1st.

We will be open with normal hours starting Tuesday, January 7th.

Again, we are so sorry for our mistake!

Sincerely,

Javier Chavez and Carrie Anderson
Owner and Operations Manager

“Excellent chocolate, and very good craft beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

They have this excellent 70%+ chocolate, also a superb chocolate cake.

You can pair it with their very good coffee... and also try their crafted brown ale, the only crafted beer we found in Arequipa, which was actually very good.

Tip for foreigners: Arequipa is a great city to eat, so I would suggest your main meal of the day to be lunch. In this case, Chaqchao will be an excellent choice for an evening sweet/drink.
