Our Chocolate Museum
In 1966 Encarna Comes and Pedro Melero get a house in C/ Sant Josep 29, which is to be a living place and a chocolate oven. Later, in 1995 another place is acquired in C/ Nou 26 which communicates with the living place mentioned before, managing to extend the little oven. In 2000, everything is demolished and a new construction is built to house all our little familiar company (Factory, oven, store, cold room and Musem).
Our Chocolate Museum was born on the 25th April2002, after a huge effort of our previous generation Pedro Melero and Encarna Comes, who after having kept a great legacy of machines and tools used by their ancestors and after having been around the whole Spain getting plenty of items and tools related to the chocolate world, decided to make the chocolate history known in this unique building.
In 2005 adjoining property is acquired and a little extension of our facilities was made that resulted in what you can visit today.
The visit is guided and lasts about an hour. The museum consists of a ground floor where there is a TV to project videos and documentaries, as well as the set of equipment needed to ellaborate chocolate: the metate, the emulsifying machine, the cocoa roaster, the cocoa shelling machine, etc…
Also, in this floor, there is the little shop where all our products are sold.
In the upper floor, there is a vast collection of tools: chocolate machines, grinders, trembleuses, different weight tools, scales, etc… as well as an extensive collection of books about the history of chocolate, uses and traditions.
In the upper floor, there is also a scale model of a falla dedicated to the fascinating world of chocolate, a vast sticker collection, posters, metal boxes and others, used as advertising.
On the first floor, there is also the chocolate oven, where we can look at our traditional way of ellaborating this heavenly delicacy. Here you can also see “Josefina”, this is how we call our mixer-emulsifying machine, the bar-making machine, our cold room, our cocoa grinder and our powder filling machine. And lastly, after learning a little bit about the fascinating world of cocoa and chocolate, you will be able to try our freshly-made stone chocolate.
After having shown you some curiosities, leaving a good taste in your mouth and hopefully having spread a litlle bit more the knowledge of cocoa and chocolate, we will have concluded the visit to the Chocolate Factory-Museum.
