Wild Kauai Chocolate School
An adventure. A retreat. A career.

Join us for 4 days of hands on fun (9-4pm, Tues-Fri) as you study, taste and MAKE bean to bar chocolate daily in our active chocolate kitchen.

Whether you’re interested in the business, or just simply a Chocoholic, you’ll get the skinny on origins, history, tasting, and practical application.

Just really love chocolate and want to learn as a hobby? That works too. Passion is a prerequisite, but no previous experience is necessary.


$795 per per program cost includes all materials and curriculum (and plenty of chocolate tasting)! Please send an email to Lance at wildkauaichocolate.com with possible dates you would like to attend school and a little information about yourself.


This is live experience in a real chocolate kitchen. Totally hands-on, you’ll receive real time instruction as you learn with time for all of your questions to be answered.

As one of four participants accepted at a time, you’ll learn our entire process, including how to make our delicious raw chocolate treats. You’ll also take home a Chocolate Manual with our exclusive chocolate and chocolate inspired recipes.

You’ll get:

  • exclusive recipes
  • A complete bean-to-bar manual
  • hands-on experience with all aspects of chocolate making
  • origins / history of bean to bar chocolate
  • time saving techniques for inclusions and infusions
  • the amazing nutritional and health benefits of chocolate
  • tips on safety / effectiveness for commercial machinery & tools
  • info on product specifications, inventory control and managing production

  • completion certificate & letter of recommendation (upon request)
