"My girlfriend wanted us to take the tour, but I've never been a huge fan of chocolate or tours. I was surprised, it was amazing! Samuel is a cool guy and a great storyteller, and makes it all very interesting. I had no idea where chocolate came from, and got to taste everything they had, found some I really liked. What a fun day.......Brian G. from Chicago"
Founded in 2015, Origen Cacao is Colombia’s only true, small batch, handcrafted, organic bean to bar chocolate factory. Our chocolate comes from a love of the land, and the unique flavors come from the equally unique folks that care for the beans. We take pride in our chocolates, and want to share the love with you.
Origen Cacao offers a weekly factory tour led in English or in Spanish. Come to our beautiful farm to learn the history of chocolate, taste the fruit and all stages of the bean, and sample our unique products. This fun 2 1/2 hour tour is perfect for all ages, includes some chocolate you made to take home, time to tour our EcoResort and swim if you like.
The Origen EcoResort, nestled in the hills of Barbosa, just one hour outside of Medellin is paradise defined. Explore the magic of Colombia, see exotic flowers, beautiful birds, eat fresh fruit, and swim in our beautiful river. Open to the public for event weekends, including chocolate tastings, wood fired pizza parties, and mini yoga retreats. Book a private stay for your group, or host your own retreat here.
