Quito: Art & Chocolate

3 Hours
On request
  • Include a chocolate tasting as part of your Ecuador vacation

For the ultimate chocolate experience, we are offering guests the chance to take an exclusive journey through 5,000 years of culture and awaken their senses with the finest chocolate and art that Ecuador has to offer. We have partnered with To'ak Chocolate and Fundacion Guayasamin to offer the 'Chocolate and Art Experience,' a one-of-a-kind journey in Quito that celebrates the rich history, art and chocolate of Ecuador. To'ak uses the oldest and rarest cacao variety on earth to make extremely limited editions of single-origin Ecuadorian dark chocolate. Visitors then get to taste the extraordinary results while guided by a chocolate specialist in a top-level experience akin to a fine wine or aged whiskey tasting.

The tasting is held in a private wine cellar in one of the most unique and fascinating art museums in the world. Some of the 20th century's most notable people such as Fidel Castro, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and the King of Spain were entertained in the wine cellar. Guests are guided through a comprehensive tasting of raw and roasted cacao beans, as well as four different editions of To'ak Chocolate while learning about different cacao varieties, terroir, fermentation methods, barrel-aging and how they influence the expression of chocolate.
