This 3-hour guided exploration teaches you the ins and outs of chocolate production, from branch to bar. Your tour begins with a stroll through the picturesque Steelgrass gardens, winding along groves of rare black bamboo, tropical flowers, and exotic fruit trees. After tasting in-season fruit, head to the chocolate orchard, home to chocolate trees at all stages of growth. Take a seat inside the chocolate-tasting tent and watch a demonstration on how to process raw cacao—first into nibs, and then into finished chocolate.|
Next, it's time to put your palate to the test: Participate in an 11-course dark chocolate tasting. Sample rare and delicious single-estate dark chocolate bars from all over the world, including:
Hawaii’s own “Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory”
Chock full of lush scenery, fascinating history, and delicious samples, this tour is sure to delight!
Mainland American producers such as Guittard, Ghirardelli, and Dagoba
The Europeans (Valrhona in France and Felchlin in Switzerland), and “Republica Del Cacao” from Ecuador
