Cocoa + Co. is a celebration of talented gourmet chocolate artisans. We select their best work and most exceptional origins, bringing their stories to you. Our mission is to curate a journey of chocolate discovery that is nuanced, beguiling and infinitely delicious. Cocoa + Co. is a dream that’s taken more than ten years to become reality. While working with winemakers like Michel Chapoutier and Angelo Gaja, owner Kim Hack learned the importance of place, varietal and craftsmanship, and recognized the correlation with gourmet chocolate. She began to long for a gathering place where chocolate lovers could fuel their passion through exploration, tasting and interaction in the same way wine lovers do at neighborhood merchants and cafes. Cocoa + Co. is exactly the spot Kim always dreamed of hanging out in.
