The Tour Begins

The tour kicked off with a friendly guide who was not only knowledgeable but also passionate about all things chocolate. We began with a brief history of cacao in the Dominican Republic, which is fascinating by itself. Did you know that the country is one of the top exporters of organic cacao?

From Bean to Bar

As we moved through the facility, the process of chocolate making unfolded before our eyes. From roasting and grinding the beans to tempering and molding the chocolate, each step was a proof to the craft that goes into making every delicious bite. The best part? Sampling the freshly made chocolate — it was sumptuous!

Hands-On Fun

After watching the experts, it was our turn. The workshop allowed us to try our hand at making our own chocolate bars. Mixing in ingredients like sea salt, marshmallows, or even spicy chili gave a personal touch to our creations, making the experience truly interactive and fun.



Wrapping Up with a Sweet Souvenir

No good chocolate tour would end without a chance to take some goodies home. The Kahkow Experience has a quaint little shop where you can buy beautifully packaged chocolate bars, ice cream, cold and hot drinks, cocoa powder, and other chocolate-infused treats. Perfect for reliving the sweet memories or sharing them with friends and family.
