Frequently Asked Questions
Why are there sometimes variations in the chocolate's taste, texture, appearance, etc?
The simple answer is that we handcraft our chocolates in small batches. Many variables can influence how chocolate will behave. Variations between batches can be caused by temperature and humidity. Sometimes difference are a result of natural variations in the ingredients. For instance, sometimes the coffee we use may vary slightly in roast, or the fresh fruits and vegetables vary in sweetness or heat.
While we strive to make our chocolates consistent from one batch to next, the nature of hand crafted chocolates is the occurrence of subtle variations. We think that these variations make life just a little more interesting.
