Great experience, very knowledgeable and courteous guide. She explained everything for us in English and was very personable. I was on crutches when visiting and she brought me a chair for the presentation. Yes, you must pay for the demonstration but the tastings along the entire process is more than what you pay. Please look at the pictures posted, you taste everything pictured plus additional many exceptional chocolates/cocoa and rum!! We thoroughly enjoyed this visit!
Interesting talk but only in French. The English talk was also mostly in French, with the audience translating, sorry to the presenter who did try her best. Lots of tasting samples and a well stocked shop to sell the full sized products. Not much more that that, just a garden growing a few cacao trees. Guadeloupe does not produce any cacao quantities worth mentioning so i assume most of the produce sold is imported. Still very informative and tasty, we enjoyed our visit
