This guy truly loves what he does and it shows!

We stopped into the shop hoping for a tour, but no tours right now. However, he gave us a wonderful taste of what he does, including award winning chocolates that you could taste why they were winners. Super fun, fast, and well worth it.

WOW! I thought I knew how to make chocolate, but turns out, I only knew how to eat it! We had the extreme pleasure of meeting with Henrik and experiencing how to make chocolate. Now, I'll be honest, my homemade chocolate did not turn out as well as the bars at TBCF, so be sure to buy a few for your travels home. Awesome, awesome experience!

Amazing chocolate
Jan 2020
Read about this place and stopped in. The chocolate smell was amazing. Signed up for the workshop. Henrique the owner is very charming and knowledgeable about his chocolate which he is in charge of from tree to pod to seed to harvesting and finally the chocolate making process. Very fun, hands on experience. Highly recommended.

Amazing smells!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We were sightseeing and driving around and stopped. The space is small, but they do produce chocolates at the store. We purchased some filled bonbons and the brandy filled bonbons were delicious. And, the one woman making chocolates gave us a small spoonful of freshly tempered chocolate.

Incredible & unique experience! Must do!
Nov 2019 • Couples
WOW! What an incredible and unique experience we had here. We had the privilege of meeting Henrik (owner) today and experienced first hand not only how to make chocolate from start to finish (which you get to eat) but also received a phenomenal history lesson on cacao and chocolate making. I could share more but I’d spoil the great experience you’d have visiting and experiencing for yourself. If you find yourself anywhere near Playa Conchal/Tamarindo/Brasilito, this is an absolute must do. This is chocolate in its most purest form. I look forward to bringing my daughter back one day to experience this! 😀

Fun and informative
Jul 2019 • Family
Loved this excursion. We learned how chocolate is produced from growing in the rainforest, harvesting, drying, roasting, shucking, grinding and mixing. Lots of fun making our own chocolate. There were 6 of us spanning 3 generations.

Best Chocolate Experience!
Jun 2019 • Family
Our Family of 10 were welcomed for an education of the origination of the cocoa plants and harvesting methods. We participated in the tasting of the fruit and the process of making the dark, rich, end product that we got to flavor ourselves. Great experience for all ages and of course we bought bars and nibs for future enjoyment. A must stop then enjoyed a rural walk into "town" for lunch. Definitely a highlight of our trip!
