Amsterdam Chocolate Tasting

Explore the world of cacao and Single Origin chocolates with Salomé Trip at Cacao & Spice, located in the heart of Amsterdam's historic city center. We have a background in the non-profit sector, my husband and I bring a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to ethical sourcing practices to our boutique chocolate shop.

Cacao & Spice is located in a historical location, at the oldest canal of Amsterdam, in the neighborhood where the first cacao and spices arrived in the Netherlands.

We offer more than just a chocolate tasting — we're storytellers. With a wealth of knowledge and a network of connections to cacao farmers and chocolatemakers around the globe, we delight in sharing the beautiful stories behind each chocolate. From the lush rainforests of Ecuador to the oldest national park of Africa in Congo, our Single Origin chocolates showcase the diverse terroir and craftsmanship of dedicated farmers and chocolate makers.

During our chocolate tastings, you'll savor Award-winning chocolates carefully curated from the finest small-batch producers. Guided by our expertise, you'll discover the nuances of different tasing notes that make each origin truly unique. As you indulge your senses, we will tell you the stories of cacao, chocolate, and the connection of Amsterdam with cacao and spices.
