Tasting & Tour: Small Batch Chocolate

with The St. Regis San Francisco and Dandelion Chocolate

For a truly indulgent experience, The St. Regis San Francisco is pleased to welcome its guests to a guided tour and tasting at the award winning, privately owned bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the Mission District, Dandelion Chocolate. They are one a few that source cocoa beans directly and make finished chocolate from the bean, rather than molding with already finished chocolate. During this half-day appointment, one of the team members at Dandelion Chocolate will guide guests through an in-depth tasting of the current single origin chocolate bars. After tasting the finished product, guests will be guided through the factory space and witness the production process whilst tasting the cacao and chocolate at each step. After the tour, guests need to save some room for dessert as a private tasting experience waits—a hot chocolate and pastry from the café will be served in the mezzanine. Upon return to the hotel, guests will enjoy restful nights and awaken to breakfast each morning.

From $780 per night plus taxes and assessments totaling 16.6% includes 2-nights accommodations for 2 guests, daily breakfast, and a tour and tasting at Dandelion’s factory.

Chocolate Making & Tasting

with The St. Regis San Francisco and Dandelion Chocolate

The St. Regis San Francisco looks forward to welcoming its guests to a chocolate making and tasting experience at the award winning, privately owned bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the Mission District, Dandelion Chocolate. They are one a few that source cocoa beans directly and make finished chocolate from the bean, rather than molding with already finished chocolate. Guests will arrive at the critically acclaimed Dandelion small batch chocolate factory where they will have the opportunity to make their own batch of chocolate in a private session. The experience starts by tasting a variety of roasted nibs, and then guests will explore the techniques for flavor development and production. This will allow them to formulate their very own single-origin or blended dark chocolate. Following this, guests will see the process of turning raw beans into roasted nibs first hand and leave with finished but un-tempered chocolate, which is great for nibbling on or for baking with. Halfway through the class, they will also get to enjoy some professionally made treats from Dandelion’s café.

What's included?

From $1,230 per night plus taxes and assessments totaling 16.6% includes 2-nights accommodations for 2 guests, daily breakfast, and the chocolate making class and tasting at Dandelion factory.

Transfers are not included. Must be booked at least 14 days prior, but last minute bookings can be accommodated, subject to availability. Cancellations less than 7 days prior will incur 100% cancellation fee. Available times for experience: Monday to Thursday – 6pm to 8pm; Saturday – 6pm to 9pm; and Sunday – all day
