  • The garden is tiny but the explanations provided about the process of chocolate are very hooking and the presenter was passionated  more »
  • I did not visit the cocoa House exhibition, but I however bought several chocolates and got very clear explanations on each. And my choice did not disappoint. I have not everything tastes, but 100% cocoa (no sugar) chocolate is top! And the shards of coffee too (even if 70%, so ~ 30% of sugar). Really good. The slightly high prices have quickly been forgotten. Mmmmm!

  • At the end of the real cocoa. Surrounded by trees, there is, we feel, we listen, we learn and taste all the stages of transformation of the cocoa bean. The visit is certainly quick but relevant. Pure cacao is put at the honor, forget too rich in fat and sugar tablets that have nothing to do with the real taste of cocoa.
