What do our students think of the course?

"10/10 would recommend! This was an amazing, informative, thoroughly enjoyable and tasty course! We appreciate the time space and guidance to taste these incredible Firetree bars. We found the emphasis on there being ‘no right or wrong answers’ welcoming and inclusive, which encouraged us to openly compare notes with each other and participate in the comments section. Thank you to Ruby, Lukas and Martyn for collaborating and bringing this course to life!"

"Cacao magazine's chocolate tasting course was educational, fun, and easy to navigate, with a mix of video and narrated slides. They encourage you to take your time through the tastings which brings you on a fascinating exploration of Firetree's collection. I especially enjoyed learning what influences the taste of the chocolate and the mini quizzes at the end of each section to check I was taking it all in! I'd recommend the course to anyone who's new to craft chocolate or simply wanting to brush up on their chocolate knowledge and tasting skills."

Cocoa Nibbler

"With each module/tasting pair, I found myself referring to the guide and thoroughly reading the accompanying notes. I am so impressed by the amount of research that has gone into the many aspects of the course! Learning about the origins, growing, farming, processing, manufacturing, distribution, and environmental aspects of cacao and chocolate, has been enlightening. Working through the tastings with detailed notes on how to get the most out of tasting a bar of chocolate have made me appreciate what I have taken for granted. It was nice to slow down and really appreciate the beautiful flavour of quality chocolate. Thanks very much, Ruby and Lukas!"
