Celebrate Cacao! is a chocolate education and events company based in Exeter, Devon, England. Founded in 2012 by Nicola Knight, Celebrate Cacao! offers a range of chocolate workshops, tastings, and events for schools, businesses, and the general public.
Nicola's passion for chocolate began in 2009 when she visited a chocolate factory in Belgium. She was fascinated by the process of making chocolate and the different types of chocolate that were available. After returning home, Nicola began to research chocolate and soon became a certified chocolate taster with the International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Tasting.
In 2012, Nicola founded Celebrate Cacao! with the goal of sharing her passion for chocolate with others. She began by offering chocolate tastings and workshops to friends and family. The response was so positive that Nicola decided to turn Celebrate Cacao! into a full-time business.
Today, Celebrate Cacao! offers a range of chocolate workshops, tastings, and events for schools, businesses, and the general public. Nicola's workshops are designed to be fun, interactive, and educational. She covers a wide range of topics, including the history of chocolate, the different types of chocolate, and the chocolate-making process. Nicola also offers chocolate tastings, where participants can sample a variety of fine chocolates from around the world.
In addition to her workshops and tastings, Nicola also organizes chocolate events. In 2015, she founded the Exeter Chocolate Festival, which is now one of the largest chocolate festivals in the UK. The festival features a wide range of activities, including chocolate tastings, workshops, demonstrations, and live music.
Nicola is passionate about chocolate and its positive impact on the world. She believes that chocolate can be used to educate, entertain, and bring people together. Celebrate Cacao! is her way of sharing her love of chocolate with others.
Celebrate Cacao! is committed to using sustainable and ethical practices in the production and sourcing of its chocolate. Nicola works with a network of small-scale chocolate producers who use traditional methods and sustainable practices. She also supports Fairtrade and Rainforest Alliance certified chocolate.
