Learn the ins and outs of chocolate production at this friendly Mitte bio-chocolate factory. At Atelier, you can learn to make a bar of chocolate – in workshops of 1-12 people – and decorate them to your desire (€8.50 for one hour). Write messages in white chocolate or use ingredients like rose petals and dried lavender to liven up your DIY dessert.
Atelier was started three years ago by friends Nina Engel and Katharina Kraft, who both have a background in culinary arts and a tooth for chocolate. They only sell their own products (€4.50/100g, €5.50/100g with writing), made from just two chocolates, one dark (70 percent cocoa) and one whole milk (41 percent) from an organic co-op in Peru.
Atelier chocolate can also be found in a few select bio stores and restaurants around Berlin, so you can satisfy your choco-longings when you’re out on the town.
