Tours, Tastings & Classes

We offer chocolate tours in both Dexter, Michigan and Mindo, Ecuador.  We invite anyone to become a part of the chocolate-making process.  Our journey begins with the Theobroma cacao tree and finishes with a beautiful, one-of-a-kind craft chocolate bar, confection, or beverage.

We hold a number of events at our cozy chocolate factory nestled in the quaint woods of small-town Dexter, Michigan.  From informative classes to interactive tours, from truffle-making to tasting, we have so many wonderful opportunities for a fun day out with family and friends!  All ages welcome.
