We are a real chocolate factory located in the heart of Brussels. A true Belgian artisan certified by Belgian Government. Every day, you can meet Elisabetta, Patricia, Félix, Alexia, our chocolate makers, and handcraft a lot of delicious chocolates with them during +/- 90 minutes. We are not a museum or a toursitic place but a real Belgian chocolate maker. With us you will really make your chocolates and learn a lot of things about Belgian chocolate from our plantations to our store in Brussels!
During the workshop we handcraft chocolates using cacao coming from our organic plantations located in Haiti Grand Anse. Once known as the perl of the Antilles, Haiti was a great exporter of coffee, vanilla, cacao, sugar cane and essential oils. The 1994 trade embargo, war and insecurity reduced the agricultural industry. Our cooperative partners drives change thanks to the focus on quality cacao and farm diversification. Smallholder farmers in Grand Anse grow our cacao organically, and deliver their wet mass to the fermentation centre where a rigorous fermentation and drying is being done, resulting in a flavoursome cacao that you will be able to use during the workshop. Our farmers receive a premium for the quality they deliver. 33,9% of the price we receive from you for this experience is used to pay premiums to our farmers.
During the experience, you will make some mendiants, some truffles and also a personalized bar that you will be able to bring with you at the end of the workshop. It is a nice moment as well to share with our chocolate makers. They will explain you a lot of things about the cacao. You will be able to taste a cacao bean (super bitter!) and also the cacao liquor (the mass we use to make the chocolate). The experience takes place in our both locations depending the day, the time and how busy are our workshops. Both our places are very near to each other (5mns by walking):
1000 Brussels (Sablon)
1000 Brussels (Place Royale)
