What people are saying about Cusco

A really fun and educational two hours spent with an excellent tutor. We were given an informative briefing on the Cocoa plant and the process to get to a fermented and roasted bean. We then made chocolate drinks and finally some chocolates to take home (1hr later once chilled). Really fun, interesting and very very tasty way to spend two hours, highly recommended.

chocolate makes us happy

chocolate makes us happy especially in the museum. we really enjoyed the lesson which is complete but not boring. Then we had a lot of fun creating our chocolate with imagination among the various spices to add. A beautiful memory from Peru.
