That’s Thad, pulling some bars off the tempering machine. I want to put my mouth underneath that spout.

This is our 23 kilo roaster. It’s a darn fine machine we’re very proud of. Most children agree it bears a striking resemblance to a "choo-choo".

Our Beautiful Video

We hired the fine folks at Fiction Creative to come up with a beautiful video representation of our factory, our process, our overall vibe and approach to making fine chocolate. We think they did a fantastic job. Big thanks to Chase, Matt, Tony and Nick at Fiction. Also more big thanks to Joshua Steadman at Steady Film for shooting the lovely interview footage of Sam and Starr. And extra ultra big thanks to Brad from Megafaun for letting us use their beautiful song to highlight our factory. So much love!

Travel + Leisure

Travel + Leisure called us one of the best new sweet shops! We’re in pretty good company too as they mentioned some folks we’re fans of like Cacao Atlanta and introduced us to some new fantastic looking places like Soma Chocolatemaker in Toronto. Thanks to the fine folks at T+L and all the other chocolate makers and confectioners who top the list. You’re making us hungry!
