At DAR CHOCOLATE we handcraft real chocolate. Using 2 ingredients only (cacao beans and sugar), we sort, winnow and grind the beans, then refine and temper our chocolate into luscious bars.


After spending 1.5 years touring and learning in Costa Rica, we opened a small artisanal chocolate factory in Denver. 

Combining our creative backgrounds and sensitive palettes, we are bringing fine, handcrafted chocolate to Colorado. 

Hope to do some tasting with you!
