Award-Winning Single Origin Craft Chocolate

Discover True Cacao Flavor

Our mission is simple:  make exquisitely flavorful chocolate from ethically sourced cacao beans.
Most chocolate is made using cheap additives and poor quality cacao.  We handcraft ours using only the highest quality beans sourced directly from farms we’ve visited, and never use any additives.    We even take the extraordinary step of freshly pressing our own cocoa butter, making our chocolate exceptionally smooth and intensely flavorful.  Try it for yourself to discover why Food & Wine included us on their list of The Best Chocolate in America!

  • Direct Trade vs. Fair Trade

    You’ve probably seen the term Fair Trade a lot on product packaging.  When you see that label you probably assume that people all along the supply chain, from farmers on up, are receiving a higher price for their product than they would otherwise.  But, that’s not always the case.  For example, with cacao it’s possible…
