Chocolate Factory - WHERE IT ALL BEGAN!
100% Organic, Stone-Ground, Fairly Traded, Live, Heirloom Cacao
It all begins with cacao trees, whose fruits ripen year-round. We hand-harvest the cacao pods and peel each bean individually on our small cacao farms. The beans are then stone ground in their raw, organic, fully nutritious, live state. Bitter they may be, until they reach the alchemist’s hands.
Master Chocolatiers, Kelly Johnson and Jeffrey Botticelli do their magic; adding organic sweeteners, like maple syrup or honey, and sprouted nuts, berries & dried fruits to create each unique Truffle, Magic Bar and Chocolate Cup. Some may know, others simply feel that chocolate in its raw state brings out a sense of euphoria, due to a few nutritional components including anandamide and tryptophan. The care, integrity and love for chocolate is obvious when you taste, feel, and experience “the best chocolate ever.” And that’s not all... ~ Raw Chocolate is GOOD FOR YOU !!! ~
Kelly Johnson, founder of The Chocolate Shop, the conductor that has developed his own methods of live, low-heat processing techniques to preserve the delicate nutrients and beneficial compounds in cacao. His dedication to the finest quality cacao production is apparent in the experience of enjoying any of his delectable treats!
The sustainability of cacao as a living tree is sacred to us at ChocolaTree, and working with others that value cacao in a similar way is of the utmost importance. To say that we have strict sourcing procedures and exceptional integral practices would only skim the surface to what is really going on behind the scenes. We would not want it any other way, as what we are rewarded with is the absolutely orgasmic delight that comes in so many forms that can also be consumed by you, our valued friends of ChocolaTree Organic Oasis.
We are so blessed with our very own in house chocolate shop. The first ever raw chocolate factory in Sedona, Arizona.
