Chocolate Experience

March 14, 2020

The old Simón Coll workshop, with its genuine antique machines, will start up to show you how the process of making chocolate has changed from its origins until today. Using a visual montage, these machines will come to life and interact with master chocolatiers, who will show us how they worked more than 100 years ago in this factory.

 

Chocolate tasting

Put your senses to the test. You will be able to taste chocolate exactly as it comes out of our production line and we will show you the best way to sample it. This is something that you will only be able to experience if you come to the Simón Coll factory.

Cava, calçots & music

The trip begins on Sunday morning at Plaça Letamendi. We’ll have a bus waiting for taking us to Sant Sadurni d’Anoia- the capital of cava- seated right by the beautiful Montserrat Mountain (about 45 min from Barcelona).

For lunch, we’ll stop at Canals y Domingo, a small handmade cava producer.  Now, properly hungry, we’ll enjoy a very tradicional Catalan lunch “Calçotada” (vegetarian options available). Delicious food, cava in abundance and, for desert, live blues.

.A bus will take us back to Barcelona.
