Make (and take home) your own dark chocolate! Sample lots of Zak's Chocolate along the way!

In this 4 hour event you will experience a combination of hands-on and demonstration of what it takes to make craft chocolate from bean to bar. Each participant will take home a containter of liquid chocolate you helped make as well your own hand-made chocolate disks, topped with an assortment of nuts, fruits, spices as you choose.  Participants also receive a 10% discount on purchases the day of the event.

 

There will be opportunities to sample chocolate at its various stages, including freshly roasted cacao nibs, partially stone-ground chocolate, fully ground 100% cacao and lots of finished chocolate.

Zak's Chocolate Making Experience also includes:

- an overview of cacao growing and the critical role cacao farmers play in how cacao is fermented and dried to impact flavor before the beans are exported, including videos of the process.

- a virtual (video) tour of Zak's small batch Chocolate Factory, showing how we sort, roast, crack, winnow, grind, conche, age & temper cocoa beans to create bean-to-bar craft chocolate bars, truffles, brownies and other tasty chocolate creations!

Organizer

Zak's Chocolate

Zak's Chocolate is a local, award-winning, small-batch craft chocolate maker (we make 100% of our own chocolate from cocoa beans) and an artisan chocolatier. We love chocolate and the story & amazing flavors of fine cacao varieties. We have been making chocolate as a hobby for years and are excited to share our passion with you.

 

At Zak's we roast cocoa beans ethically sourced from different regions and make our own single origin and house blend chocolate to use in bars, truffles and other yummy confections.  Everything is done by hand, from sorting cocoa beans to wrapping our bars.

 

Like coffee and wine, each cocoa bean comes from a unique terroir that impacts its flavor. At our factory in Scottsdale you can see (and learn) how chocolate is made from the bean. 

 

We hope to see you soon for a unique chocolate experience!
