Cape Town’s much-loved bean-to-bar and ethic chocolate-making company, Honest Artisanal Chocolate, is offering virtual chocolate tastings and IRL (in real life) workshops.
At Honest Chocolate, with its café in the CBD, they believe in keeping things handcrafted, using old-school methods, using quality organically produced ingredients, and making pure dark chocolate.
Chocolate lovers can now partake in virtual chocolate tastings at home. Honest Chocolate delivers a parcel of various dark chocolates to people’s doors. Thereafter they meet participants online for a remote tour of their chocolate factory in Woodstock, Cape Town (VR headsets not included . . . yet).
They then share a story of where cocoa beans come from and guide an interactive tasting from the tasting pack included in the delivery. The tasting pack comes with flavour wheels, maps, and polls.
A minimum of 12 people is required. No maximum. This form can be filled in to make a booking.
Soon, Honest Chocolate will also be offering workshops at their new factory. IRL bonbon and tasting workshops include a full tasting and introduction to how cacao beans are farmed and processed, as well as a demonstration of how chocolate is made. Guests are then taught to dip, decorate and wrap their own set of four bonbons to take home.
