Travel the world through flavor
Come for a private tasting with Maya to learn more about the surprising intricacies of chocolate.
Travel the world through chocolate as you learn to distinguish the flavor profiles of various terroir and manufacturing processes, and why they taste so different. No prior qualification is needed, only a love for chocolate.
You'll taste four bars of different origins from the best bean-to-bar makers we carry, and/or four different Chocolate Maya bonbons produced right there in our Santa Barbara kitchen. For palate cleansing, we offer tea and water between chocolates, but it is essential to come with a reasonably clean palate (i.e. no garlic, onions or coffee before the tasting)!
Private tastings cost $30.00 per person, with a four person minimum. Sessions last between 40 to 60 minutes depending on your questions. Additional beverage pairings are available upon request.
