About
We will visit every part of the chocolate factory all the way from the very back where we sort the beans and roast them. The "hot room" is where you will see where the magic happens, where the big stone grinders turn the cocoa beans into chocolate. The "cold room" is next where you will see the chocolate is tempered and molded into chocolate bars. Lastly, we will go back to the shop to taste all the single origin and flavored chocolate.

Wonderful Tour
Jan 2020
The tour was very interesting. They showed us all about how they make the chocolate, from the description of the cacao beans, to the crushing of them, and to turn the luscious smelling melted chocolate into their products. They were very friendly and hospitable. We were given the tastes of every single type of chocolate they sell. I highly recommend the tour for all chocolate lovers!

Excellent Tour
Jan 2020 • Friends
I learned so much about making chocolate, and the chocolate that they make is so good. It is the best chocolate that I have ever tasted. And it is the only pure/artisan chocolate place around. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My only regret is that I lived in Fresno for a year before finally going. I would recommend making your tour reservations at least a week early because they sell out quickly. In addition to tours, they have a small shop that is great to stop by for a chocolate and/or caffeine fix. I will be back.

The best chocolate I've ever tasted
Jan 2020 • Couples
I can't say enough good things about this place! We did the chocolate tour and we learned so much about the origin and manufacturing of chocolate. We tasted SO MANY different products. Each one was more delicious than the last. The owners are incredibly passionate and kind people. We will be back very soon
