Online Chocolate Tastings

A virtual chocolate tasting is a delicious & inclusive way to thank your colleagues for their hard work and your clients for their business; it’s also a fun way to bond with distant family & friends. Whether you want to celebrate the completion of a project with a small team or host a holiday party for your whole company, I’ll create an online event that will have attendees still raving about the next day.

To schedule a private online chocolate tasting, please fill out this form and I’ll get back to you within 48 hours. Alternatively, you can drop me a line at estelle@37chocolates.com or call me at ‪(610) 306-2350 between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern Time to plan an event within a week or less within the US and Canada. Packages start at US $100 per person.

Finding the right experience provider for your event can be tricky, so let me help you by sharing what sets my chocolate tastings apart.

I’m a chocolate connoisseur, not a choco-snob // White chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate: I eat them all. Whether you feel the same or swear by the dark stuff, you’ll feel welcome at my events. Your tasting kit will include at least two single origin dark chocolate bars and one with a sweet inclusion (think cherries or potato chips), to satisfy a wide range of tastes. Good to know: the bars I curate are all made with transparently traded cacao beans.

International attendees are welcome // As you’ll guess from my accent, I’m originally from France: while I lead the majority of my events in English, you can trust me to host successful tastings in French. Oh, and does your group include international attendees? Fantastic, we’ll leverage my international network of chocolate partners to have kits shipped to multiple countries, including (but not limited to!) Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, France, India, New Zealand, the UK, and more.

Details matter // I believe your chocolate tasting starts when you open your chocolate package, which is why I hand wrap all chocolate bars in tissue paper and include a personalized handwritten note in each shipment. Sure, these details take extra time, but they are the difference between a good and great chocolate tasting experience.

I can create wine & chocolate pairings // Pre-COVID, I used to lead wine and chocolate pairing events at private clubs and wineries in the Philadelphia area. I’ve been lucky to learn about wine from award-winning winemakers, passionate sommeliers, and natural wine distributors, and I want to pass that knowledge on to you. You can learn about my approach to pairings here and, if you’re intrigued, fill out this form so we can plan an event.

You can call me // Does your event have a tight turnaround time? Will it include international attendees? If so, forget about email – we should talk to craft the right event for your team. You can reach me at (610) 306-2350.

Estelle was wonderful in assisting me to surprise a colleague for a job well done! She was super responsive and helped make the surprise chocolate gift a great hit with the company which in turn led to other colleagues paying it forward! Thanks again Estelle and 37 Chocalates!

I really enjoyed how you interacted with the whole group, and the lightness… it felt like I was sitting in an actual room with people… I was really happy to feel the ‘humanity’ during the session, which was unexpected for a virtual event.

I’ve been wanting to learn more about craft chocolate and had researched a few different options for virtual tastings. I am so glad I chose Estelle’s. She is not only a wonderful teacher with a wealth of knowledge and tips, but she creates such an inclusive and welcoming environment in which absolutely anyone can learn and share. I loved the unexpected paths our tasting discussion went down. We weren’t sitting there solemnly “rating” chocolate or cataloguing tasting notes. Estelle instead elicited a joyful discussion, which is what chocolate is all about. I can’t wait for the next one. Very glad to have found this chocolate-loving community. Thank you Estelle for bringing us together and sharing your wisdom. Now off to eat delicious leftover chocolate for breakfast 🙂

A chocolate experience to remember! At each tasting session (i’ve been lucky to participate in several!), Estelle performs her magic, and creates a community that is warm, welcoming & approachable. A space to not only learn about chocolate, but to taste some of the most unusual chocolates available from all corners of the world. Especially impressive is Estelle’s behind the scenes wizardry to insure your chocolate boxes arrive safely & intact before the tasting even begins. It’s obvious that Estelle cares about not only the ultimate consumer (you & me), but she is obsessed with giving credit to each hand that ultimately is responsible for creating a single bar of chocolate–from the farmer close to the equator who grows the chocolate & handpicks every single cacao pod, to the chocolate maker who creates an unforgettable bar from a burlap bag of cacao beans.

37 Chocolates has a rare special touch that invites you to learn, ponder & peek inside the world of chocolate in a way that will change your perspective about something (chocolate) that we tend to take for granted.

“Just want to say thanks you for being so professional and what a pleasure it is working with you… People still singing your praises about the event : )” – Kristine

“I had such a wonderful time at your chocolate tasting this evening—thank you for an event that was as delicious as it was fascinating! Such an incredible group of participants, too! I loved hearing about the single origin … chocolate bars, and they are some of the best chocolate I’ve had. It reminded me of a family trip to Ecuador a few years back, where we visited a cacao plantation and got to see their whole growing, roasting and chocolate-making operation. 
I’m so glad I got to participate, and I look forward to future events.” – Trudy, California 

Thank you so much for today’s tasting. We had a lot of fun. It was so nice to see Maxime and Elfi again today. Their chocolates are so good! My kids also really like all the chocolates. We have attended so many tastings and it’s always fun but having a good host is so important. We can’t wait for your next event. Thank you!Jacqueline
