Private Fine Chocolate Tasting Class (Online With Tasting Box)


Learn to be a fine chocolate connoisseur with a Cocoa Encounters online tasting session and discovery box.  This is a private, online tasting session for one of two people.


Learn the art of sensorial tasting and take a journey around the fine chocolate globe with a tasting of white, milk, dark and flavoured chocolate from different cacao growing regions.  The session includes a Tasting Box with either with-dairy or vegan chocolate tasting samples. You can choose your dietary preference when you book.   

This is a private session for one or two people sharing the same screen. If there are two people attending, ordering an additional tasting sample set is recommended.  This session is suitable for complete beginners or for those who have already been introduced to craft chocolate but want to explore a particular aspect of either Taste, Transparency or Craftsmanship alongside their tasting. Please indicate any past experience or particular interest when you book.

I host and deliver all the sessions myself. I use the chocolate to introduce you to some of my favourite makers, including bars from Barebones (Glasgow), Dormouse (Manchester), Duffy’s (Lincolnshire), Luisa’s Vegan Chocolates (Nottingham), Original Beans (Amsterdam), Pump Street (Suffolk) and Solkiki (Dorset). You will also meet other makers and retailers along the way.

Your Cocoa Encounters Discovery Box contains 7 tasting samples of fine chocolate, an industrially made chocolate to compare, cocoa beans, sample information cards, a taste experience guide, tasting notes and a set of three postcards.

The tasting pack can be posted out to a UK address.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

1. Tell the fine from the fashionable – judge the quality of a chocolate bar using the quality criteria of Taste, Transparency & Craftsmanship.
2. Practice the art of sensorial tasting – use each of the five senses to appreciate the taste experience of fine chocolate.
3. Recognise the origins – identify the growing regions and taste profiles of fine cacao.
4. Impress your friends – show off your knowledge with some fine chocolate facts and figures.
5. Talk like a taster – have the confidence and vocabulary to participate in further tastings.
