Our Chocolatiers

Kakawa's chocolatiers are dedicated to sharing their passion for chocolate. They balance the traditional with the cutting edge, creating unique and exquisitely bold creations from fresh, seasonal ingredients. Their one-of-a-kind creations include truffles, chocolate elixirs, agave caramels, solid dark chocolates, alternative baked goods, and delicious homemade ice cream. Working exclusively in small batches, our staff ensures that each piece of chocolate looks as exquisite as it tastes.

Our Mission
Our mission is to re-introduce you to chocolate. We draw on the chocolates long history, re-creating original MesoAmerican and Colonial chocolate recipes, and using them to inspire our new and exciting creations. We have a startling variety of contemporary flavors (including sugar and dairy-free confections), such as Pomegranate, Chile, Hibiscus flower, and Mescal. Kakawa also offers classic European-style truffles such as Rose Orange, Earl Grey, Espresso, and Macha.

Our delightful staff are as passionate about the history and anthropology of chocolate as the chocolatiers themselves, delivering a rich experience to everyone who comes through our doors.

In everything we do, we support sustainability, fair trade, local farming, and culinary daring.
