Cacao & Spice
Stimulate all your senses in this private chocolate tasting! Our chocolate & spice shop Cacao & Spice is located in the old harbour of Amsterdam, the Red Light District.
From the 17th century the United Dutch East India Company (VOC) had a monopoly position on the trade in spices, that made Amsterdam a rich and powerful city. Nowadays Amsterdam has the biggest cacao harbour in the world!
In the chocolate tasting you will try all different chocolates, from white to 100%, from different parts of the world, single origin chocolate, chocolates with spices, and you can even try a raw cacao bean.
In this tasting we will also smell, learn about and taste some delicous spices from the famous Spice Islands, a former Dutch colony. We also make bonbons ourselves, we have sweet bonbons, bonbons without dairy, with nuts, spices etc. Ofcourse you will try some of our home made bonbons during the chocolate tasting.
Enjoy a tasty and delicious program!
