Hi Ancel, Thank You for your interesting class when we were there in February. I still have tiny piece of amaranth/orange chocolate left. (My granddaughter likes it too; so need to make more! I really enjoyed the experience and knowing that there actually is such a thing as 'good' chocolate! Susan

I have taken Ancels chocolate making class 3 times and also a chocolate “treatment” fun day with a group of women! The class has been just a little different every time I’ve taken it and I learn something new! It’s never ever boring and it really because Of Ancel that it is so much fun. She tells great stories and I learned all about the medicinal properties of the actual cacao which was an added bonus in addition to the chocolate making! It’s completely hands on at its best! Great for a group as I have done a couple of times or just a special
Someone that you want to share this delicious magical experience with! Did I mention the chocolate is some of the best I’ve ever had?! It truly is. It’s made with love!

I have taken two workshops with Ancel, chocolate making and natural beauty treatments and both were so much fun and so informative. Ancel is eager to share her extensive knowledge about the healing and beneficial properties of our local plants. We had delicious chocolates at the end of one session and glowing skin at the end of the other. I would highly recommend Ancel's workshops, they would be a great activity to add to a girls' trip or a bridal party. Also the perfect way to spend a rainy Puerto Viejo day.
