All chocolate started in the Actez/Mayan empires. Belize is right in the center of the beginnings. Chocolate is still cultivated in the old ways in most of Belize, small independent farms.
Run by Chris, an English ex-pat. He's been in Belize for 20 years. Started making chocolate 10 years ago and opened up his store 5 years ago.
The chocolate itself is topnotch. Good selection. They also do hot chocolate and shakes. Too hot for hot chocolate. I thought the milkshakes were not thick enough to be considered a milkshake. More of a cold drink.
You must do the chocolate making class. $15Bz per person. 30-40 minute session. Small ~10 people, on the back patio. 5 minute quick video then a hand on session on how chocolate is made. Get to taste the everything. Fresh cacao pulp. Fermented vinegar, roasted cacao beans, nibs, ground up dark and milk chocolate crunch (before liquid.) You get to try grinding on a Mayan stone mortar. It was fantastic. Chris is friendly, informative, and helpful.
I would highly recommend the chocolate making class.
