CALLING ALL CHOCOLATE LOVERS!
Ever wondered about ChocolaTree's amazing, raw, organic chocolate making process? Now is your divine opportunity! This January 2023, join long time chocolatier Jeffrey Botticelli, for many amazing offerings, in our very own Chocolate Factory!
Tempering Chocolate is the process of taking the chocolate from a de-stabilized state and re-stabilizing the fat crystals, Adjusting the characteristics. My back round as a farrier and blacksmith provided the foundation for tempering chocolate through the tempering process with steel. Tempering is a process of heat treating, which is used to increase the toughness of iron-based alloys. My transition from this work into chocolate making translated fairly easy, and as a result I am a self taught chocolatier.

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE
Our chocolate shop is in constant production for ChocolaTree and distribution worldwide, creating the largest selection of handmade, artisan-crafted raw chocolates. Mirroring the integrity of our eatery, our chocolate shop uses only organic, stone-ground, fair-trade ingredients, and we are so blessed to house both establishments under the same roof for so many reasons: the friends, the community, the laughter, the intoxicating aroma of cacao wafting through our premises and, of course, the chocolates!
We partner directly with small-scale cacao growers to preserve their traditional way of farming, thereby safeguarding the biodiversity of cacao in Ecuador. We undertake a number of sustainability programs for the benefit of the cacao-growing communities with which we work. The sustainability of cacao as a living tree is sacred to us here, and working with others that value cacao in similar ways is of the utmost importance. As a result, we are rewarded with absolutely orgasmic delights that come in so many forms to be shared with you as part of our extended family at ChocolaTree Organic Oasis.
It all begins with trees growing with ripening fruit 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 alchemists hands where Chocolatier, Kelly Johnson adds sweeteners like maple syrup or honey and sprouted nuts, berries & dried fruits to create each unique Truffle, Magic Bars and L.O.V.E cup (Live Organic Vegan Euphoria)
Some may know, others just feel that chocolate in its raw state brings out a sense of euphoria, due to a few 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 it ~ Raw Chocolate is GOOD FOR YOU !!
The grander vision involves a pristine Earth growing with Cacao Trees in bio diverse areas around the world. As it is known Cacao is a medicine, superfood, and delicious treat. Continue to reforest the earth, Eat Delicious Chocolate and improve your health Now!
