Learn. Tour. Taste. Experience The Journey!

An exclusive tour of Los Angeles' First Bean-to-Bar Factory! Cacao Experts will lead you through a tour of ChocoVivo's home base factory and cafe, and teach you about the origins and history of chocolate. We will share how we stone-grind our single-origin organic cacao and the benefits of eating and drinking chocolate.

Plus, enjoy a tasting of 6 different chocolates from Pure Bars, Blended Bars and Limited Edition Blends, paired with one full size choice chocolate drink (less the Frozen Hot Chocolate).  All drinks are customizable with type of chocolate and dairy and non-dairy milk options. 

The tasting will take place in our cafe/ storefront in beautiful Culver City, a short distance from the beach and beautiful Westside Los Angeles. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and step into the oasis of ChocoVivo to celebrate yourself, cacao and inner peace.

Our Cacao Beans are Different

We use an old technique called the Mayan method where the beans are less acidic and less bitter while maintaining a higher level of antioxidants. Taste the difference.

Minimally Fermented >
Lower Acid >
More antioxidants

Our beans are specially fermented for less than 3 days. This creates less acidity. Research has shown that less days of fermentation means more flavanols are maintained in the chocolate.
