We won Six sofi™ Awards and Swept the Dark Chocolate Category!

We’re thrilled to announce we won six 2019 sofi™ Awards!

The Specialty Food Association’s sofi™ Awards have been honoring the best and most innovative specialty food products for 47 years. These are the most respected awards in the food industry and we not only brought home six but our bars swept the dark chocolate category! In a first for any chocolate maker we won gold, silver and bronze all in the same year!

Also, in the Chocolate Candy category our Special Reserve with Putnam Rye Whiskey bar won both Silver and Best New Product – the only chocolate bar to win two sofi™ awards this year. And, last but certainly not least our Almendra Blanca single origin Hot Cocoa mix won Silver in the Hot Beverage category.

We’re incredibly proud that our chocolate has received such prestigious honors. We put an incredible amount of time, effort and care into all aspects of our chocolate making – from personally sourcing our beans to pressing our own single origin cocoa butter – and it’s gratifying when the results of all that dedication are recognized by such a respected organization.

Thanks for supporting fine flavor, single origin craft chocolate!
