We’re keeping incredibly busy these days. We’ve had a few events that have connected us to San Francisco chocolate lovers with great palettes. And, there are more coming up soon!
Tuesday night, Adam of Fog City News hosted a tasting event in his space. He brought in customers who have tasted as many as 200 different bars of chocolate. We introduced them to our bars from Tanzania, Costa Rica, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and Madagascar. We also asked for their help tasting different roasting profiles for a new batch of beans we have from the Dominican Republic. We were happy to have honest feedback from people who have tried a lot of chocolate and know what they look for in an excellent bar. They offered their opinions of our bars, our concept, and our packaging. It was a great opportunity for us.
Next, we’ll be at the Mission Community Market as usual today from 4-8 PM out on Bartlett Street. Last week we sold out of bars from Madagascar before 5 PM, but we promise to have more this afternoon.
Then, on Sunday, we’ll be at Pot + Pantry in the Mission for a great event hosted by FARMcurious. You can read more about the event here. We’ll be participating with Punk Domestics and Karen Solomon, author of Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It. It should be a great morning- you’ll be able to learn to make cheese and cocktail infusions, taste some chocolate, and walk away with a signed copy of Karen’s book. We’ll be there from 11 AM – 3 PM. Hope you can come by!
Last but not least, we finished putting together our wholesaling package. You can now find us on the dessert menu at Mission Cheese. Hopefully, in the next few weeks you’ll be able to pick up our bars at a few other shops in the area. We’ll let you know where, but keep your eyes out!
