Our Chocolate Tasting Course offers you a window into the world of rare, exclusive and small-batch chocolate. Every month we will send you four bite-sized pieces of the world’s finest artisan chocolate, along with information about each bar and guidance on how to truly appreciate fine chocolate. That’s a continuous supply of world-class chocolate for less than $4 a week! Plus you’ll receive a free copy of Luke’s Chocolate Tasting Notebook with your first box.

The Chocolate Tasting Course works on a subscription basis, so you’ll pay $12.50 every month, and you can pause or cancel any time at the click of a button.

For your first six months you’ll also receive a ‘lesson’ with each box. These lessons will teach you all kinds of things about chocolate and cacao, as well as providing activities that you can enjoy with loved ones or in your own private bliss. After six months, you’re welcome to stay signed up to the Tasting Course, or you might want to upgrade to our main subscription service. The choice is yours, but please note that you will stay subscribed unless you cancel or switch to another subscription service.

  • Experience the world’s finest and most ethical small-batch chocolate
  • Taste a selection of incredible bars each month, curated by an expert who has years of experience and direct relationships with the chocolate makers
  • Discover chocolate that would otherwise be very difficult to get hold of in New Zealand
  • Receive Luke’s Chocolate Tasting Notebook for free when you subscribe (usually $12)
  • Be the first to try limited releases and new additions to our chocolate library

Boxes are sent out in the first week of each month. If you order on or before the 20th of the month you will receive that month’s box straight away. If you order after the 20th of the month then the first box you receive will be the following month. You’ll have complete control over your subscription and it's super easy to change any of your details, such as delivery address, delivery schedule or your payment details. After the first payment, payments will be processed on the first of the month.

If you would prefer to make a one-off payment, you might want to consider a Pre-paid Tasting Course or our Chocolate Snob Tasting Box instead.

If you are sending the Tasting Course as a gift, please put your name above the billing address and the recipient's name above the shipping address at the checkout.
