Living in Arequipa as a dark chocolate lover, dark chocolate was a staple in my luggage coming back from trips to the US. Until now! Finally, we have dark chocolate here! And, amazing dark chocolate at that - creamy, delicious, and with great add-ins like red quinoa! My husband is a white chocolate fan and says their white chocolate is like nothing he's ever tasted before - he is addicted. I just took their new chocolate making workshop with friends and it was a blast - really interesting facts I never knew about chocolate, and we made our own bars with the add-ins we wanted. They make all of their bars from the bean with nothing but cacao, cacao butter and panela (pure, unprocessed sugar). Yum.

Whenever I fee like excellent coffees or a craft beer this is the only place I go, plus the food and chocolates are DELICIOUS. Insided and outside (away from the smog) seating....... I highly recommend it for locals and tourists alike.

Me and my girlfriend had a vegan brownie that was so dry and hard that we had difficulties eating it. We had to leave most of the brownie left.

Benjamin,

We are so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience in our store. We pride ourselves on good desserts, so it is obvious that the product you purchased was not up to our normal standards. We will be reviewing our quality standards with our staff and speaking to our baker to assure that we are not serving products that our customers do not enjoy.
Again, we sincerely apologize for your bad experience. If you are still in Arequipa and wish to be reimbursed for your purchase we would be happy to do so.

Thank you for your time,

Carrie Anderson
