The person who did the course was knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about chocolate. The value was just not there... The store is about 250 squarefeet. During the history lesson we are expected to be standing in the store like shoppers. It seemed a lot more like an experiment than a "course". I will say this is definitely not something that anyone should be charging for.

For the cost of $40 for two the tasting was ok but nothing impressive because of choices of tasting were minimal . At least give the discount for purchase .

Matt the instructor was nice, wish there was a quick over view of what was going to happen and not just start off the class with no introduction

You learn a lot about the history of chocolate and get to try some interesting kinds. Very small space though.
