We are a small, family-owned business with a love for craft chocolate. Our bright green shop is located at the gateway to the quaint, picturesque village of Empire.
Our PEOPLE: Our small staff is part of our family and we are committed to providing wages above industry standards and a fun, supportive work environment. Relationships are important to us and each year we travel to meet with the farmers who grow our chocolate.
Our CRAFT: Like any craftsperson, we spend inordinate amounts of time honing our skill as chocolatiers. Instead of trying to master all ends of our supply chain, we focus on what we do best - making fabulous chocolate confections. This allows us to create consistently high-quality chocolates for you to enjoy! We're proud to work closely with some of the most talented cacao growers and couverture makers in Ecuador and Venezuela to bring you our unique blend of world-class, artisan chocolate.
Our PASSION: Our love for rich, dark chocolate and a passion for local foods inspires our truffle recipes and other chocolate creations. We use fruits, edible flowers and herbs from our garden and we source larger quantities of ingredients from local farms. On occasion we use wild-harvested foods from the rich soils and pristine forests of our Northern Michigan home. Travels and studies of chocolate through Latin American and Europe inspire us and many of our recipes.
Our FUTURE: We strive to minimize our impact on the natural environment. Our chocolates are all-natural and contain many organic and other naturally grown ingredients. We package the chocolates in compostable bags and recyclable/recycled materials when possible.
We hope you will enjoy these handcrafted, artisan chocolates for their quality and uniqueness!
