I don't have anything new to add that wasn't already mentioned in the other rave reviews, I just want to add to the chorus of compliments. Jeff gave a wonderful, personal, informative tour and the chocolate tasting at the end was such a treat. We bought $60 worth of chocolate to take home with us!

The tour was well worth it. Not only do you learn about the whole chocolate making process, you get to taste test the different stages. It will not be what you expect. Towards the end you try different estate frown chocolates in a wonderfully beautiful setting. Just the view makes it all worthwhile.

If you have the time this is definitely something you should do when in the area.

The tour was fantastic, very informative and took you through the entire process 1st hand from how the cacao is grown, harvested and put to use to the final product.

Excellent tasting session also from the observation area at the top of the hill which offers a stunning view.

The icing on the cake was we also got to see a sleeping Ant Eater in the tree whilst on the tour.

Make sure you try out the excellent iced coffee in the shop before you go, it's a must.

Jeff, the owner, guided us three hours long through his property. Not only the walk through mango and chocolate trees was pleasant, the view at the top was simply stunning. We learned a lot about old fashioned chocolate production (as opposed to industrial production), I will never ever eat Hershey or Nestlé chocolate. Also interesting how they help locals to get back into chocolate growing.
Highlight was the chocolate tasting including mixture of chocolate, spices and herbs.
I am glad we had this experience.
