Wonderful Coca shop!
You are greeted with a cup of coca shell tea and given an introduction to the layout of the shop. Information on the history, displays on the production and hands on demonstrations. Be sure to time your visit for one of these at 10, 12, and 2pm. (Double check times before your visit)
The prices in the cafe are some of the highest in Cusco but still cheaper than the states. My recommendation is to order the cold chocolate drink to go.Recommended for:History Buffs

Take a deep breath because you are going to love how this place smells! Located only a block off of the main plaza, the ChocoMuseo is a lovely little shop where you can take a class in how to make chocolate from the cacao beans to a finished chocolate bar. You have to sign up for the class in advance, but if you don't get in make sure you stop by and take a look at their little museum and then enjoy a cup of tea created from the cocoa husks. If you are really a chocolate fanatic, you can arrange to go on a tour where you can visit a plantation and meet the farmers. Truly a unique store and a unique experience during your trip to Peru.
