Creo Chocolate

Creo Ecuadorian chocolate, available online from Chocosphere.

The principals of Creo Chocolate opened their workshop out of a lifetime enjoyment of learning how things are made. For several years they experimented with roasting beans, using their chocolate in every recipe they could imagine, eating their way through chocolate shops in North America and visiting cacao farms in Ecuador.

When they found out that chocolate was grown in the tropics largely by rural, small multi-generational family farmers, their hearts were drawn to the common pride of growing something, by their common heritage of farming.

They were compelled to work with the farmer. So in 2014, they sold their small family farm with a desire to share this real craft chocolate with their family, friends, and community.
