    What to Expect
    Starts at El Quetzal de Mindo in Mindo, Ecuador 

    Welcome to our popular chocolate tour. We see more than 2,000 people come to our tours per month. We began making chocolate in 2008 and sell chocolate bars in Mindo and in the US.

    First we will congregate at El Quetzal, a well-known restaurant-cafe in Mindo we have where a small chocolate factory where we make small batches of chocolate by hand. We also have cocoa trees and you will taste fresh fruit and see the entire processing of cocoa beans from fermentation, drying, roasting, winnowing, grinding, and making batches of chocolate to finished and wrapped bars. You will finish with a tasting of a sampling of chocolate bars made at El Quetzal.

    We learned a lot about the process and whats important to know about the quality of chocolate. Our tour guide was very friendly and had an answer to all our questions. It was really interesting and especially the tasting of the different types of chocolate and the other products

    The tour was good. Sergio explained with details all about cacao plants, and chocolate process. Their trees are organic and the process is artisan. But all this is was killed when they present the chocolate with one use plastic spoons and cups. Even worst when you buy a glass

    Yesterday, I did the chocolate tour. After reading the few bad reviews here, I suppose they improved. The tour is informative enough, with a small walk around the garden to see cacao trees, hierba luisa, stevia.. then the fermenting and drying process and everything from there
