Chocolate Tree is a bean to bar chocolate maker working closely with cocoa farmers at origin. A chocolate tasting evening with us will take you on a journey from the cacao farms we have visited through to finished chocolates we make here in Scotland. As well as sampling some of our finest chocolates we will cover a brief history of cocoa origins and chocolate, talk about the environmental and health benefits of cocoa, roast some cacao beans and even make the beginnings of a little chocolate.
Led by the amazing Diana Calthrop, along the way you will discover the secrets of fine flavour chocolate and how to unlock them. We will taste a wide variety of premium chocolate, from organic couverture and bean to bar right through to a finished praline and even chocolate gelato.
Places cost £29.95 per person, and will only go ahead if we have 8 people attending, we keep the tastings to a small group size for maximum enjoyment. Typically they will last around one and a half hours. We provide a complimentary glass of bubbly and of course lots of excellent chocolate to taste as well as an opportunity to learn about real craft chocolate and cacao. We have had fantastic feedback about our tastings.
People with dietary restrictions are welcome, most of the chocolate we try will be dairy, gluten, soy and nut free (although may contain traces). Our tastings are aimed at adults who wish to discover the joys of fine flavour chocolate, although children from the age of 12 are also welcome.
As well as the tasting we hold in our Bruntsfield shop, we offer bespoke private tastings for events and parties. Please contact Diana by selecting ‘Chocolate Tasting’ on our contact form to make an enquiry.
We are one of very few chocolatiers in the UK that actually make chocolate (from bean), and we will be delighted to share our passion for chocolate with you.
