Workshop to make bean to bar chocolate from roasting to tempering, with professional facilitators and in a great ambience!
70 pupils from three 5th grade classes of the ASKO primary school enjoyed a chocolate painting workshop in the Cacaomuseum, and an excursion to know the rich cacao history of our neighborhood.
On Easter Monday, the Cacaomuseum organized together with El Sauco and Ralph Hagen Patisserie CHOCOLATE HEAVEN in the Augustijner Church, Maastricht. The event consisted of a Easter happening for children, a delicatessen market focussed on bean to bar chocolate, with side activities such as opera and pairings, and a five course chocolate dinner.
Th Cacaomuseum participated at Chocoa 2018 with a stand, three Bean-to-Bar workshops, and a presentation on Taza chocolate!
The first Friday of each month, the Cacaomuseum organizes a tasting! Our most recent tastings were on chocolate from some pacific islands, and on chocolate from Ecuador.
The Cacaomuseum co-organizes the Origin Chocolate Event. The Origin Chocolate Event takes place in seven halls of the beautiful Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam. You can experience, taste and learn about all aspects of chocolate and cacao, with a special focus on arts, trade and sustainability. There are a lot of stands, concerts, tastings, talks, expositions, workshops, kids activities and other attractions. A wonderful experience for chocolate lovers of all ages!!
