Turning a cocoa bean into a beautiful chocolate bar is a wonderful, wonderful process. I will tell its story - one of the great stories in the world. I will guide you through this magical transformation, every step of the way. You will sort the cocoa beans and then roast them. We will then crack and winnow them. With a pestle and mortar we will grind them until they are fine. You will taste the chocolate at each stage to see how the flavours of the chocolate changes and develops over time. This journey releases different flavours notes which can be very dramatic.
The next stage is really beautiful - think of a diamond - one of the hardest substances known to man - but transparent. Light shines through it. This is because the carbon structures are completely aligned - it is the same with chocolate, tempering aligns the crystal structures to a similar pattern and uniformity. Once tempered - you will pipe or mould the chocolate into your very own beautiful bar. You will then take your own unique Chocolate bar home with Melt's beautiful packaging and a designer bag. An authentic experience from the Heart of Notting Hill. I will interweave the story of chocolate - so you see how the Aztecs created such beautiful cocoa. We love story telling and we think the story of chocolate is one of the world's greatest stories.

This was a cool experience, the host was very knowledgeable about chocolate and it was interesting to hear about the background of the chocolate industry. We tried LOTS of different types of chocolate and it was fun being hands on with the chocolate production process. In the end we got to use moulds and different fillings to make our own chocolate bars. Only issue was the space is a bit cramped and we were standing for the entirety of the experience

What a fantastic experience. I enjoyed learning about chocolate and process of making great chocolate. This is ideal for those who love chocolate, for me it was too rich for my palate. Space was very tight. Other than that, host was very friendly and accomodating.

It was so much fun and we enjoyed it a lot!! It is highly recommended to have such unique experience in London. We were educated to know how luxurious chocolate is.

This is a wonderful experience that helped to get me out of the flat while I stayed in London for 6 weeks for work and I'm glad that I take the plunge and signed up. You get to learn and taste all sorts of forms of chocolate (and even have some tea from the husks). She had tools and everyone was able to participate in the making processes. They showed videos to compliment the experience, while also sharing why chocolate tastes different depending on where its grown (like on the grounds of a volcano verses mountains - yes you can taste the smokiness from the volcano - really!). You get to taste each of these to see how dark chocolate all the way to milk chocolate (just like wine tasting) changes. I enjoyed my evening out. You husk the pods, grind the cocco, make, form, and wrap your finished bars. Sign up folks, if nothing else you get take home 3 of your own chocolate bars during your time there.

Kate was fantastic! I took 4 of my children - all teenagers - and they had a blast! We all learned a lot about the chocolate making process and had a great time sampling different chocolates!

There were actually 2 hosts for this experience, I believe the other’s name is Julien, and they each take their turns taking you on the chocolate journey. I was the only one who signed up for the time slot so I got to have them all to myself. It was an amazing experience and I am officially a chocolate snob now, I went to Belgium today and tried their chocolate and honestly Melt’s is better. Julien and I connected over the history of chocolate and it’s importance within South America. Kate was very helpful in demonstrating how to grind the beans and tempering chocolate. I wasn’t quite sure about the tour originally as the UK isn’t known for their chocolate, but I am so glad I did! Only thing I’d say to future chocolate snobs is to check the location of the experience that is on the Air B & B posting, as I idiotically went to the wrong location purely because I didn’t confirm that I was going to the correct location (there’s two). Thank you to Kate and esp Julien, I loved geeking out with you about Jared Diamond and Hershey’s sneaky marketing tricks. Gosh I hope his name is Julien or I will be so embarrassed.
