Cocoa Runners Virtual Tastings

“A combination of history, palate busting flavour, and humour. You will never look – or taste – chocolate the same way again!”

Why Join a Virtual Chocolate Tasting?

Craft Chocolate provides an amazing way to try something that not only tastes better, but is also better for you and better for the planet.  Grab yourself a Craft Chocolate Tasting Kit and (along with our virtual live guided tasting) you’ll be able to experience this across eight different bars.

Craft chocolate provides you with a unique way to understand more about taste, flavour and mouthfeel. It literally helps you to “refine your palate“.

What Will I Learn?

During the tutored tasting session, you’ll discover the ways to understand the difference between taste and flavour, astringency and bitterness, and what causes the different textures in chocolate. You’ll explore and learn to appreciate the way flavour and taste develop like a wave, and the importance of checking the label before you buy.

We’ll take you on a guided tour of how chocolate is grown and crafted (from the cocoa tree to the final bar) – delving into the wacky history and incredible socioeconomic impact of chocolate along the way.

What Do I Need To Join?

Chocolate isn’t essential. But it’s definitely advisable and useful. You can order your Chocolate Tasting Kit here.

Bring along another device (e.g. a smartphone, tablet). During the tasting we’ll be using, so as you taste the bars you can share your impression with everyone on the call.

Remember to bring glasses of water and a coffee bean. And if you fancy, bring some wine, beer or whisky etc. to enjoy with your Craft Chocolate.

Are These Tastings Suitable For Children?
