Chocolate Tastings

Book your private or corporate chocolate tasting experience

Get together with friends or colleagues and discover the world of fine-flavour craft chocolate. If you’re a business looking for something different and engaging for your group, sessions can be adapted to make a unique and memorable team building or reward experience. A fine chocolate tasting or pairing also makes a stylish and innovative way to celebrate that special occasion.

All Cocoa Encounters events are curated and delivered by certified chocolate taster Kathryn Laverack.
