Rose started making chocolates professionally in January 2010. In those early days she would host tasting parties, inviting neighbors and friends to critique my creation. It was a valuable part of the process to discern what people liked and how they reacted to each chocolate. From there she developed some classics still offer today.
Rose’s first space was in a professional kitchen, which was rented from a local caterer. There was no store front so Rose sold either at the local food co-op or by setting up 1-2 day pop-ups, selling candies in business store fronts that were willing to let her sell there for a day or two.
Our first first retail store opened in July 2014. Rose started with just selling chocolate candies. But with demands from customers for pastries she partnered with Mary Jo Waltman, to offer fine pastries. We then expanded our offerings to include pastries and cakes.
We quickly out grew that space and moved to our current location. We now offer espresso drinks along with our chocolates and pastries. We have an open kitchen that allows the customer to view the production in action. We enjoy answering questions and demonstrating our processes.
We strive for excellence and quality in all our menu offerings. We hope you come in and enjoy the best in chocolate, pastries and coffees. joy in Chocolate!!
