Attended: Bean-to-bar Chocolate
This was an intense, informative and fun introduction to the process of making chocolate by an enthusiastic and interesting presenter. Though one might think from the course name that you were going to crush, clean, grind, melt, temper and mold your own chocolate bars, more accurately you will learn how the first 5 steps, along with wrapping each bar, evolved at Raaka from drudgingly doing them by hand to the (often unique) mechanized systems they now have in place. Along the way, you do get to mold and flavor 3 of your very own Raaka Chocolate bar creations and end with a tasting of many of Raaka's chocolate flavors. You will leave with a deeper appreciation of one of life's little, complex pleasures!

Highly recommended! If you go to Raaka's official website, a tour is $10 and a class (including the tour) is $50, although sometimes its $75 on Coursehorse! The tour lasted for 1 hour and 20 mins and the actual 'chocolate making' lasted 10 mins for the group of 12, and is only a 2 to 3 MINUTE LONG PROCESS for each person - it consisted of catching ready-made chocolate in a mold, spreading it out/tempering using a vibrating machine, and then sprinkling toppings on (the chocolate cools and hardens super fast so u need to get the toppings on fast if you want them to stick), then refrigerate for 30 mins while the tour goes on. You get to keep 3 bars that you make (you can buy 3 bars of raaka chocolate for $15 at the factory). I'm giving it 4 stars because we had a blast - the tour guide was great, it was informative and fun, learned a lot about the bean to bar process, got to taste beans and chocolate at different stages, and it was fun to make our own bars. But keep in mind it might not be the best value since for a tour (which is already awesome in itself!) and 3 bars of professionally-made raaka chocolate it would cost only 25$.
