What is a Certified Chocolate Analyst and Sommelier?
We are certified through the Chocolate Alliance as Chocolate Analysts- this means we have been trained to taste subtle flavor nuances within chocolate and can often describe what may contribute to the flavor profile of a specific chocolate. We’ve spent well over 100 hours each tasting, rating, describing, and judging craft chocolate. (It’s a hard job, we know!)
Where do you ship?
We have the ability to ship all over the US, Puerto Rico, Canada, Europe, and parts of Asia. Shipping rates outside of the contiguous United States vary. Use our contact form for more specific details.

What equipment is required for hands on workshops?
For our In-Person Workshops we can provide portable gas burners for venues that allow this type of equipment to be utilized. Our Bean to Bar Class requires us bring a Roaster (must be placed on suitable table for heat safety), food processor, and hairdryer (yes, a hairdryer!). We also provide all bowls, spatulas, and various tools. We prefer if attendees bring a tupperware to bring home their chocolate creations as it helps us reduce waste!
For Virtual Workshops attendees will need a stovetop (preferred) or microwave. Small tools needed include a pot, bowl, spatula, and spoons. A full detailed list is provided upon request or upon booking.
Will you come to my home to facilitate a tasting or workshop?
Yes, we require two chocolatiers on hand for in-home experiences and an additional fee is added for this labor.
