We had a great time at the Caribeans Coffee & Chocolate. True genuine experience including in depth knowledgeable tour guiding of fruits, forests, reptils and, of course, chocolate and chocolate production. Tasting took place on a beautiful platform with excellent sea view, and included various kinds of chocolates, herbs and a chocolate drink. The entire visit felt personal and caring.

You will not be disappointed by the chocolate and coffee they sell here. We did not do the tour, but stopped in to the coffee tasting room and were able to sample several varieties. One cool thing about the chocolate is that in addition to having different flavors (herb, spices, etc), they also have bars that you can buy based on chocolate from different farms.

The coffee we brought home and gave to family and friends - everyone has really enjoyed it. We plan on ordering online and shipping to the US.

I have to say that I wasn't really sure what we were getting into when my daughter suggested Paul's chocolate tour, but it was a really entertaining and educational afternoon. Do be prepared to hike and dress appropriately as you will climb up to the "farm". Paul's knowledge of cacao and the processing. of chocolate is amazing and his inventions made us smile. I have done wine-tastings many times, but never a chocolate tasting. That was a lot of fun and very tasty! The panoramic view from the top of the farm was well worth the little walk uphill.

We met the owner Paul on the Carribeans chocolateplantation and "factory" tour. The tour was fabulous and we came back the next morning when it was raining to spend the morning over coffee. Very relaxed and nice atmosphere. Paul and his staff are great.

Needing a Chocolate Fix I whipped off to Caribeans Coffee & Chocolate cafe...
Ah, the perfect brownie, perched on a big dollop of vanilla ice cream, topped with a decent chunk of pure chocolate.
What's perfect about the Brownie: Moist, fudge-like with little nuggets of chocolate: A 1st Class Brownie.
For me, they can leave the chocolate sauce out... the rest more than satisfies.
Coffee is of course brilliant too...But don't forget to take a step into their air-conditioned chocolate tasting booth and give your taste buds a treat. I'm not sure it's possible to leave without buying some of what you've tasted.... unless your will is iron-clad. My favourite is the Three Kings chocolate bar, with fascinating flavours. But then there's the plain chocolate bars, sourced from surrounding fincas. If you like chocolate or coffee, this is a must!
Lovely to take home for friends and family too.
