Traveling the world through flavor
No matter what you already know about chocolate, Maya will lead you through a private tasting adventure to unwrap the depths and delicacies of chocolate.
Travel the world through chocolate as you learn the subtle notes of various terroir and why they taste so different. After this, distinguishing high quality chocolate – and why it's important– will become second-nature. 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 $25.00 per person, with a two person minimum. Sessions last between 40 to 60 minutes depending on questions. Additional beverage pairings are available upon request.
