Cold brew COFFEE. bean-to-bar chocolate. Simple, essential, daily pleasures.
Why cold brew coffee?
We're big fans of black coffee. But we had a problem — we couldn't find a cold brew on the market that we could drink without milk. So we made one ourselves! Made with our small batch roasted coffee and brewed for 19-22 hours — we (and our fans) think it's the best cold brew you can get. Creamy, chocolatey and oh so smooth. Drink it black or serve it with milk — that’s a damn fine cup of coffee, if we do say so ourselves.
Why Bean to Bar chocolate?
Chocolate is the perfect marriage of pleasurable and healthful. And it's also a highly mismanaged commodity. We aim to bring the best out in our precious, highly curated cacao beans because we want people to know what real chocolate tastes like — in all of its natural glory. For too long cacao has been dutch processed and marginalized as a hyper-sweet sugary treat. We think that disrespects cacao's potential and history. We're here to help change how people view and eat chocolate, one bar at a time. We respect the chocolate by taking our sweet time with the process. Each micro-batch of our dark chocolate bars takes 7-14 days to make, and we only make a few hundred at a time.
