Live the Simón Coll experience
We’ve been making our chocolate since 1840, working from the cocoa bean to the final product, taking care of every stage of the process. At Espai Xocolata you will live an incredible experience where you will learn about cocoa and chocolate’s history and culture, and how Simón Coll chocolate is produced today. Come with us and live with all five senses the Simón Coll experience. During the visit you will be able to enjoy:
The 180º audiovisual area
Have you ever wondered what a cocoa tree is like? Using an audiovisual montage on spectacular panoramic screens, we will transport you to a cocoa plantation so that you can discover the process of making the raw material, find out how the cocoa pods and beans get to the factory and learn how we then turn them into chocolate.
The traditional workshop
The old Simón Coll workshop, with its genuine antique machines, will start up to show you how the process of making chocolate has changed from its origins until today. Using a visual montage, these machines will come to life and interact with master chocolatiers, who will show us how they worked more than 100 years ago in this factory.
The production line
Chocolates are one of our specialities. Do you want to see how we make them? Through glass, you will see a part of our current factory where we make our products every day. It is one of the Simón Coll production lines, as well as the experimental line, where we make new products and experiments with textures and flavours. For reasons of hygiene and safety, you are not allowed to enter the production area but you will be able to see this line at work from Monday to Saturday (this schedule can be altered according to factory production needs).
Put your senses to the test. You will be able to taste chocolate exactly as it comes out of our production line and we will show you the best way to sample it. This is something that you will only be able to experience if you come to the Simón Coll factory.
Do you know how many cocoa beans you need to make a bar of chocolate? Our guides will answer this and many other questions, making sure the visit is full of fun for people of all ages.
