The wait is over…our tours are back!!

Take our guided tour and get a behind the scenes look at how our award-winning chocolate is made from raw ingredients to finished products. You’ll learn loads about our chocolate making process, our responsible sourcing methods, our unique production facility, and walk through our bean-to-bar flavor laboratory.

All tours are guided and will operate whether or not we are producing chocolate during the tour. Chocolate is produced daily. However, the schedule can change without advanced notice. Your guide will still talk you through the machinery, processes, and make sure there is plenty of chocolate to eat!

After the tour, you’ll get to nosh on some of our single-origin dark chocolates, pure milk chocolates, and a featured Flavor of the Day in a guided tasting. At the end of the tasting, the TCHO retail store will be open for business. The tour ticket includes $10 off an in-store purchase.
