It’s family business, a woman tells a history about the carob and full factory process. They provide the products from carob, very delicious and good for presents
Worth to visit
Carob is the gold of Cyprus
I visit the museum today. I learned a lot about carobs.
I also bought some sweets and a sort of granulats which you can use for everything where you normally take kakao. I will test with a cappuccino.
They even produce carob liqueur.
This charming tiny museum is staffed by authentic locals who have been making carob products for generations and so, can talk visitors through the process end to end, peppered with fascinating facts. However, I would be lying if I didn't point out that the best...More

Visited this museum and workshop as part of a tour (Troodos Hidden Charms)

The staff explain how the seeds were processed to make a healthy alternative to sugar.
The staff then show how the...More

As previously answered by Maria, It is a great little visit which takes about 20 minutes from start to finish. Anogyra is a bit off the beaten track so I would check with the bus station at the harbour or at Karavella. Best to hire a car and make a day of it. Go down the highway towards Limassol , come off and go to Anogyra then after that visit head on to Omodos. Also agree with Maria about the sweets and syrup.
Hope this is of help!
