What you'll do

We will meet in the garden headquarters of Europe's smallest and most alternative bean-to-bar chocolate factory. You'll begin your learning experience by tasting and crushing your own raw cocoa beans, combining ingredients, and making chocolate in your mouth. Learn what is involved in the full bean-to-bar chocolate-making process, and taste the wild and wonderful range of healthier, alternative chocolate that we make. From cocoa husk tea, to cooking chocolate, to coated cocoa beans, we have experimented with most combinations. I've been working with chocolate for over 20 years and love nothing more than chatting about anything cocoa—from origins, to ethics, to ingredients—so bring your curiosity.

Where you'll be

We are located in Clonakilty town, a 5 min walk from the main street. You will be given detailed directions upon booking. Our garden chocolate factory is located on our property at the rear of our home and as such, it's not accessible by the general public. When you arrive, please walk up the front steps and around past the greenhouse to the side entrance.
