We spotted this small shop and chocolate source while exploring our neighborhood. It's a gem! The staff is very knowledgeable about all things chocolate and the drinks, ranging from various types of hot chocolate to a chocolate blend beer, are reasonable and delicious. They offer chocolate workshops on Saturdays.

Belyzium imports its own chocolate from Belize and their beans are a winner. I am confident that in a blind taste test I could pick them out. Ït is the "beaniest"/most raw/closest to the original fruit chocolate taste I have ever encountered and I personally like it very much. It may not have the fine subtleties of Domori's best varieties (I consider this Italian brand the best I have ever tasted) but it gives you your high quality chocolate fix - and then some. The menu is quite short. Bars are 5,50 and there are many other chocolate products, as well as roasted beans, which by themselves are delicious. There's hot chocolate shots, very good coffee (according to my mom, the coffee expert), bottled fruit smoothies, etc. They had (?) ice cream over the warmer months (1.80 per scoop) and I considered their chocolate version the best I have ever had. They always present fruity flavors as well (some with choco nibs) and flavors you will never encounter anywhere else. They also offer chocolate making classes. Seating is rather limited as it's a small but lovely corner place.

I'm wearing a blue hair net and shoe covers in an immaculate food preparation room and it's the moment of truth. I push a button on a dispenser resembling a prop from Dr Who and out pours a flow of chocolate that began life as a humble tray of cacao a short while earlier. My iPhone-sized plastic tray is the end of the road for a crop harvested by farmers in the jungles of Belize and shipped 6,000 miles to Belyzium's corner shop in Berlin. While I might be a little too long in the tooth for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory analogies, I'll confess to a feeling of, 'I made this' at a workshop I took part in. The artisans have a 'tree to bar' philosophy, making only dark chocolate using one type of cacao grown, fermented and dried by farmers paid above Fairtrade rates. In an introductory video founder Andrei Shibkov looks like a kind of genteel India Jones, stood casually on a motor boat somewhere in Belize. I can imagine him trekking through the undergrowth, the natural riches of mythical cacao being his personal Holy Grail. Andre found his prize - a blend of two wild native beans - in a jungle to the south of the country. And this from a Russian-born entrepreneur living in California with a boutique shop in Berlin. Food of the Gods, the promotional material promises us. Well, with such a back story comes high expectations. On arrival we were presented with samples of Belyzium's chocolate-based products, including fine, subtle ice cream, pale hot chocolate and even a bottle of beer, and played the videos on an overhead screen. We then shuffled through to the food prep area where giant white sacks of imported cacao rest next to shiny metal surfaces and table-top machinery. A member of staff demonstrated each stage of the process, allowing us to sample or peruse the different ingredients along the way. Cacao, even without sugar, isn't too bad, we found. The industrial methods used by larger mainstream chocolate brands became apparent during the workshop and I'll never look at certain high street names again. At the end of the session we were invited over to the choco-droid with our trays, before adding ingredients such as nuts or chilli. Another member of my multi-lingual group made a bar which will surely bestow the power of fire-breathing on whoever is brave enough to take a bite. Our creations were put in the fridge to cool down and were ready in pristine Belyzium-branded packaging by the time it came for us to leave. I waited until after my return to England to see if the 'food of the Gods' could visit wonders on earth. Despite having been shoved in my fridge for several days, the bar had a rich, well-rounded taste from the gentle roasting and a hint of spicy warmth. It also retained the tangy flavour of the original cacao. The chocolate was worthy of five stars and the workshop came close. I will be back, if not just to buy some more bars made the experts.

Dear YunziesTravels, Thank you very much for taking your time to leave the review and your appreciation of our products. We strive to make sure that all of our customers have only 5-star experience and would really appreciate it if you could tell us what we could do different in your case. You mentioned that your workshop experience came close to 5 stars, but it was not clear in which areas you thought we fell short. Thank you in advance, Andrei
