Hi Sandy! The tempering process is discussed during the factory tour portion of the class. However, they do not do an in-depth training on how to temper chocolate at home. Hope this helps!

I received this tour as a gift and it was incredible! You learn so much in the walk-around factory tour and get to do some fun taste-testing along the way. Creating our own three bars was definitely the highlight! Will keep an eye out for their chocolate in stores :)

Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/29/2018
Loved the class! Learned so much information about various types of chocolate making and how Raaka is different. The employees at Raaka are so passionate about what they do and it was wonderful to experience that first hand. The “chocolate making” may have only been a small portion of the class, but the whole experience was wonderful! Would definitely recommend!
