2. Chocolate tasting
Akin to a wine tasting, guests will be guided through a comprehensive tasting of raw and roasted cacao beans and four different editions of To’ak Chocolate. The guide will educate guests about different Ecuadorian cacao varieties, terroir, fermentation methods, barrel-aging and how these production variables influence the flavor and aroma profile of each expression of chocolate.
The second hour is a tasting and pairing of To’ak chocolate, guided by a chocolate specialist from To’ak. The tasting is held in Guayasamin’s private wine cellar, where he entertained some of the 20th century’s most notable people, such as Fidel Castro, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Francois Mitterrand, the Prince of Monaco, and the King of Spain.
The late Oswaldo Guayasamín is the most celebrated artist in the history of Ecuador,
and his eccentric house has since been converted into an art museum. This is where To’ak hosts it’s unique Chocolate & Art Experience.
Perched high above Quito, with sweeping views of the city, the beautifully landscaped grounds and artfully lavish home is a living, breathing testament to art. Inside this home is one of the most unique and fascinating art museums in the world.
It is overflowing with archeological and artistic treasures that Guayasamín himself collected, along with his own great works of art.
