Who Is This For: Anyone who wants to get started making their own bean to bar chocolate, or for those who just want to learn and experience how chocolate is made from scratch. No experience necessary! Open to all.  We've had pastry school graduates and those who don't have a clue.  If you are willing to learn, we're happy to have you! All techniques used will be something you can repeat at home with minimal specialized equipment, other than the wet grinder.

Take Away: About 1.5 lbs of cacao beans (2 origins), 1.5 lbs of fresh bean to bar chocolate, bean to bar making literature & resources, and a coupon for a free 1-hour of live video chat with Geoseph

Your Instructor: Geoseph Domenichiello, master chocolatier, chocolate sommelier, bean to bar maker, and educator working in the industry for over a decade.

Class will cover:

Day 1
