CHOCO MUSEUM IN MIRAFLORES
Bean to bar
Workshop in the Choco-Museum – Design your own chocolates
Choco Museum was designed to share our knowledge to people who show an interest. They like it to be personal with you, with direct interaction between staff and you.
We are often asked if they are a non-profit organization. Well, they are not. But yes, they have things in common, like passion, the spirit of sharing, pride in their work and doing their best.
Learn how to make your own chocolate in a 2-hour workshop at ChocoMuseo in Lima. This is a hands-on activity that starts from the cocoa tree to the finished product at every step of the entire chocolate manufacturing process. Also, discover the history of cocoa and the reasons why Peru is known for its fine chocolates!
That is what you awaits
Learn how to make your own chocolate during this interactive tour through the museum and chocolate workshop. Our professional guides will explain how to make chocolate from bean to bar. Understand the story behind famous cocoa beans and how Peru made some of the best chocolates in the world.
During the workshop, you will get to know the different steps of the chocolate making process and participate in 4 of them: roasting the cocoa beans, removing the cacao pod, grinding the cocoa nibs on a metat with a mano and refining the cocoa mass in a melangeur.
