"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 by one of our founders, Samuel. Come 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, is hosted in English and includes transportation and some chocolate you made to take home.
We have several rooms available here at our factory in beautiful Medellin. Located in Barrio Conquistadores, this true local neighborhood is full of restaurants and entertainment, and central to all the city has to offer. Surprisingly quiet and full of nature, it is a tranquil place to stay, in such a bustling city.
