San Francisco -koffiewinkel verbied 'Hipster -onderwerpe'

San Francisco -koffiewinkel verbied 'Hipster -onderwerpe'

Four Barrel Coffee Shop het 'n bord aangebring wat die wêreld aanstoot gegee het (wel, meestal hipsters)

Four Barrel sit die kabosh op jou hipster shenanigans.

Ons het gedink dat koffiewinkels 'n hipster -toevlugsoord sou wees, nè? Hoekom anders La Colombe sit hulle koue brouwsel in 'n vintage koeldrankmasjien? Dit blyk dat een van die koffiewinkels in San Francisco dit met u hipster -praatjie gehad het.

'N Tipster het SFist gestuur 'n prentjie van Vier Vat se 'n nuwe bord in die agterste venster met koffieruimte, waar reëls vir koffiekonsumente geplaas kan word. Alhoewel die meeste reëls redelik wettig is (kyk uit vir verkeer, respekteer bure se geraasverdraagsaamheid en hou die steeg vry van asblik), lyk daar 'n enkele reël. Soos die laaste reël lui: "Praat nie van irriterende hipster -onderwerpe nie. Of wie jy gisteraand fok het. Jy moet dit in elk geval nie doen nie, maar ons bure kan jou eintlik hoor."

Wel, dit sluit beslis baie gespreksonderwerpe uit. Maar Gawker het 'n lys saamgestel gepaste onderwerpe om te bespreek: kontaklense, driewielers, keper-katoenmengsels, Beyoncé, baard (die afkeuring daarvan) en Paul Ryan. Dit sorg vir 'n bietjie pret! Gaan koffiewinkels te ver deur hipsterpraatjies te verbied - of aan te moedig?


10 Amerikaanse sjokoladeondernemings wat u moet probeer

Lande soos Frankryk en Switserland is moontlik wêreldberoemd vir hul besonderse sjokolade, maar dit is nie die enigste plekke met 'n verskeidenheid fyngemaakte, verwerkte kakao nie. Hierdie Amerikaanse sjokolademaatskappye laat u nie net verder soek as na u eie agterplaas vir die beste van die beste sjokolade nie.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

is bekend vir sy spesialiteitsbars gemaak van organiese kakao wat regverdig is en wat spesifiek verkry word deur eienaars Joe Whinney en Debra Music-voormalige eggenote wat sake-vennote geword het. Sedert 2006 het Theo Chocolate "boontjie-tot-kroeg" sjokolade geskep, wat beteken dat kakaobone op een plek gerooster, gemaal en tot sjokolade-saligheid verander word. Soms word Theo Chocolate so bestook dat dit 24 uur per dag sjokoladestafies vervaardig, soos die klapper donkersjokolade en swart rys quinoa crunch.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Baie klein sjokoladeskeppers soek kwaliteitbestanddele afkomstig van organiese kakaoboerderye om bars van hoë gehalte te produseer. Recchiuti neem sy sjokoladeproduksie nog 'n stap verder deur bars te maak met plaaslike bestanddele, waaronder sjampanje uit die Napa -vallei. Eienaars Michael en Jacky Recchiuti het die kunsmatige sjokolademaatskappy in 1997 geopen en daarop gefokus om klein hoeveelhede sjokolade met kwaliteit bestanddele te vervaardig, wat dikwels vars kruie uit die boeremarkte in die omgewing verkry het. Boonop het Recchiuti vroeër vanjaar met broumeesters van twee brouerye in Kalifornië saamgespan om bier te vervaardig wat nie gekoppel moet word nie: 'n sjokolade -stout met die kenmerkende sjokolade van Recchiuti en gebrande karamelstroop.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // DRIE RIVIERE, MASSACHUSETTE

word bestuur deur een man, bevat twee eenvoudige bestanddele en is gebaseer op Three Rivers, Massachusetts. Die klein boontjie-tot-staaf sjokoladeprodusent, onder leiding van Colin Gasko, fokus daarop om die onderliggende geure van sjokolade uit te lig deur slegs rietsuiker en enkelbronkakao te gebruik. As u 'n aanhanger is van sjokolade-byvoegings en geurmiddels, is Rogue Chocolatier miskien nie u eerste keuse nie, aangesien Gasko meen dat dit 'n vermorsde poging is om regtig goeie sjokolade te maak en dan neute daaroor te gooi. Maar as u 'n suiwer, eersteklas sjokoladestafie wil hê? Selfs Martha Stewart is 'n fan.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Aartappelskyfies, mieliedraaie en toebroodjiekoekies is 'n groot aanvraag, sjokolade-gedoopte versnaperinge wat deur Bedré Fine Chocolates verkoop word. Maar die ongewone kakao-versnaperinge van die onderneming is nie die enigste ding wat hierdie Amerikaanse sjokoladehouer van ander banketbakkers onderskei nie. Dit is ook die enigste Amerikaanse sjokoladefabriek wat in besit is van 'n inheemse Amerikaanse stam. In 2000 het die Chickasaw Nation die onderneming gekoop, wat destyds uit 'n voormalige laerskool in die suid-sentrale Oklahoma bedryf is. Sedertdien het die onderneming plaaslike werkgeleenthede geskep terwyl dit toerisme bevorder het - om nie eens te praat van die vervaardiging van 'n verskeidenheid sjokolade nie, soos die fudge, gevulde "meltaways" en gevulde sjokoladestafies.

5. FRAN SE SJOKOLADE // SEATTLE

As die Withuis meer bokse sjokolade vra, weet u dat hulle iets reg doen. Fran's Chocolates in Seattle het 'n gunsteling geword by nie net die Obamas toe hulle in 2008 op die veldtog was nie, maar ook hul geheime diensagente (ondanks die onwilligheid van president Obama om te deel). Fran's Chocolates is in 1982 geopen onder die toesig van Fran Bigelow, 'n chocolatier geïnspireer deur 'n reis na Parys, en het sedertdien truffels, karamels, sjokoladestafies en gedoopte vrugte en neute van hoë gehalte geskep.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

Miskien moet u 'n elmboog gooi om 'n hap van hierdie Midwestern -lekkergoed te kry. Christopher Elbow Chocolates is bekend vir sy klein hoeveelheid, kunstige sjokolade, sowel as sy lang reeks kliënte wat wag om 'n paar lekkernye te kry. Sjokolade word met die hand geverf soos klein doeke, maar die geure-soos sitruspralien, mango-basiliekruid en whisky okkerneut-is die ware meesterstuk. Maar eienaar Christopher Elbow fokus nie net op die finale voorkoms nie, maar sjokolade word van nuuts af gemaak met vars bestanddele en geen preserveermiddels nie-wat beteken dat hulle 'n kort rakleeftyd het (wat nie 'n probleem vir sjokolade-liefhebbers mag wees nie).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

Die eienaar van Bon Bon Bon is meegedeel dat sy na 'n groot stad moet verhuis sodat haar sjokoladewinkeldrome suksesvol kan wees. Maar die inwoner van Michigan, Alexandra Clark, het gekies om naby die huis te bly en handwerk -truffels en sjokolade in byna 100 geure te deel met Hamtranck (en nabygeleë Detroit) sjokolade -liefhebbers. Sedert 2014 het Bon Bon Bon ongelooflike ondersteuning gekry vir die klein sjokolade -lekkernye, en verkoop hy meer as 2000 sjokolade per dag, soos Goat Honey, Margarita, Sticky Bun en Johnny Cashew. Alhoewel baie geure seisoenaal is, soos Fried Green Tomato en Caprese, neem Bon Bon Bon tyd om sy tuisdorp te vereer met 'n spesiale "Detroit Collection", met geure wat geïnspireer is deur die klassieke kookkuns van die stad.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

As u nie dadelik die naam van hierdie sjokolade -handelsmerk kan uitspreek nie, is dit goed; dit is in elk geval belangriker om te proe. TCHO (uitgespreek "choh") word beskou as 'n tegnologiese onderneming wat aan 'n soort onderneming voldoen, en maak staat op sy eie wolkgebaseerde tegnologie om die beste tyd te bepaal om kakaobone te pluk vir maksimum geur en minimale afkeuring vir boere. Die eindresultaat van hierdie tegnologiese invloed is 'n verskeidenheid sjokolade met 'n boontjie-tot-kroeggeur, soos Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino en Coconut Crisp.

9. GEEN KEUE TOEGELAAT // NEW YORK CITY

U hoef nie Frankryk te besoek om heerlike sjokolade-truffels te vind nie-No Chewing Allowed neem 'n 75-jarige Franse resep en skep swoerd-waardige truffels hier in die Verenigde State. Behalwe die klassieke truffel, kan sjokolade -liefhebbers onder meer geniet van koffiebone, gekonfijte lemoenskil en gesoute toffie -geure. Wat die naam betref? Eienaar Lior Genzel bedoel dit. Die beste manier om 'n truffel te geniet, is om dit stadig op jou tong te laat smelt, anders mis jy die volle sjokolade -ervaring.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Dit is bekend dat sjokolade 'n paar voordele vir die gesondheid inhou, en K'ul Chocolate poog om dit ten beste te benut. Eienaar Peter Kelsey is 'n kankeroorwinnaar met die doel om aan te toon dat kakao van hoë gehalte gesonde antioksidante en glukemiese indeksvlakke bevat. Na bestralingsbehandeling was sjokolade een van slegs drie geure wat Kelsey kon proe (langs koffie en proteïene), en in 2015 het hy K'ul Chocolate begin met die idee om sjokolade as 'n gesondheidskos na sy wortels terug te keer. Sedertdien het die onderneming gefokus op boontjie-tot-staaf sjokolade in Minneapolis, met pampoenpitte, guarana en ander voedingsbestanddele. En met sjokoladestafies wat gemaak is om uithouvermoë te verhoog en elektroliete te herstel, is daar geen rede om skuldig te voel omdat u u smaakpapille geniet nie.

Maar eienaar Christopher Elbow fokus nie net op die finale voorkoms nie, maar sjokolade word van nuuts af gemaak met vars bestanddele en geen preserveermiddels nie-wat beteken dat hulle 'n kort rakleeftyd het (wat nie 'n probleem vir sjokolade-liefhebbers mag wees nie).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

Die eienaar van Bon Bon Bon is meegedeel dat sy na 'n groot stad moet verhuis sodat haar sjokoladewinkeldrome suksesvol kan wees. Maar die inwoner van Michigan, Alexandra Clark, het gekies om naby die huis te bly en handwerklike truffels en sjokolade in byna 100 geure met sjokolade -liefhebbers van Hamtranck (en nabygeleë Detroit) te deel. Sedert 2014 het Bon Bon Bon ongelooflike ondersteuning gekry vir die klein sjokolade -lekkernye, en verkoop hy meer as 2000 sjokolade per dag, soos Goat Honey, Margarita, Sticky Bun en Johnny Cashew. Alhoewel baie geure seisoenaal is, soos Fried Green Tomato en Caprese, neem Bon Bon Bon tyd om sy tuisdorp te vereer met 'n spesiale "Detroit Collection", met geure wat geïnspireer is deur die klassieke kookkuns van die stad.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

As u nie dadelik die naam van hierdie sjokolademerk kan uitspreek nie, is dit in orde - dit is in elk geval belangriker om te proe. TCHO (uitgespreek "choh") word beskou as 'n tegnologiese onderneming wat aan 'n soort onderneming voldoen, en maak staat op sy eie wolkgebaseerde tegnologie om die beste tyd te bepaal om kakaobone te pluk vir maksimum geur en minimale afkeuring vir boere. Die eindresultaat van hierdie tegnologiese invloed is 'n verskeidenheid sjokolade met 'n boontjie-tot-kroeggeur, soos Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino en Coconut Crisp.

9. GEEN KEUE TOEGELAAT // NEW YORK CITY

U hoef nie Frankryk te besoek om heerlike sjokolade-truffels te vind nie-No Chewing Allowed neem 'n 75-jarige Franse resep en skep swoerd-waardige truffels hier in die Verenigde State. Behalwe die klassieke truffel, kan sjokolade -liefhebbers onder meer geniet van koffiebone, gekonfijte lemoenskil en gesoute toffie -geure. Wat die naam betref? Eienaar Lior Genzel bedoel dit. Die beste manier om 'n truffel te geniet, is om dit stadig op jou tong te laat smelt, anders mis jy die volle sjokolade -ervaring.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Dit is bekend dat sjokolade 'n paar voordele vir die gesondheid inhou, en K'ul Chocolate poog om dit ten beste te benut. Eienaar Peter Kelsey is 'n kankeroorwinnaar met die doel om aan te toon dat kakao van hoë gehalte gesonde antioksidante en glukemiese indeksvlakke bevat. Na bestralingsbehandeling was sjokolade een van slegs drie geure wat Kelsey kon proe (langs koffie en proteïene), en in 2015 het hy K'ul Chocolate begin met die idee om sjokolade as 'n gesondheidsvoedsel na sy wortels terug te keer. Sedertdien het die onderneming gefokus op boontjie-tot-staaf sjokolade in Minneapolis, met pampoenpitte, guarana en ander voedingsbestanddele in sy repe. En met sjokoladestafies wat gemaak is om uithouvermoë te verhoog en elektroliete te herstel, is daar geen rede om skuldig te voel omdat u u smaakpapille geniet nie.


10 Amerikaanse sjokoladeondernemings wat u moet probeer

Lande soos Frankryk en Switserland is moontlik wêreldberoemd vir hul besonderse sjokolade, maar dit is nie die enigste plekke met 'n verskeidenheid fyngemaakte, verwerkte kakao nie. Hierdie Amerikaanse sjokolademaatskappye laat u nie net verder soek as na u eie agterplaas vir die beste van die beste sjokolade nie.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

is bekend vir sy spesialiteitsbars gemaak van organiese kakao wat regverdig is en wat spesifiek verkry word deur eienaars Joe Whinney en Debra Music-voormalige eggenote wat sake-vennote geword het. Sedert 2006 het Theo Chocolate 'boontjie-tot-kroeg' sjokolade geskep, wat beteken dat kakaobone op een plek gerooster, gemaal en tot sjokolade-geluk sal word. Soms word Theo Chocolate so geblokkeer vir bestellings dat dit 24 uur per dag sjokoladestafies vervaardig, soos die klapper donkersjokolade en swart rys quinoa crunch.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Baie klein sjokoladeskeppers soek kwaliteitbestanddele afkomstig van organiese kakaoboerderye om bars van hoë gehalte te produseer. Recchiuti neem sy sjokoladeproduksie nog 'n stap verder deur bars te maak met plaaslike bestanddele, waaronder sjampanje uit die Napa -vallei. Eienaars Michael en Jacky Recchiuti het die kunsmatige sjokoladeonderneming in 1997 geopen en daarop gefokus om klein hoeveelhede sjokolade met kwaliteit bestanddele te vervaardig, wat dikwels vars kruie uit die boeremarkte in die omgewing verkry het. Boonop het Recchiuti vroeër vanjaar saamgewerk met broumeesters van twee brouerye in Kalifornië om bier te vervaardig wat nie gekoppel moet word nie: 'n sjokolade -stout met die kenmerkende sjokolade van Recchiuti en gebrande karamelstroop.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // DRIE RIVIERE, MASSACHUSETTE

word bestuur deur een man, bevat twee eenvoudige bestanddele en is gebaseer op Three Rivers, Massachusetts. Die klein boontjie-tot-staaf sjokoladeprodusent, onder leiding van Colin Gasko, fokus daarop om die onderliggende geure van sjokolade uit te lig deur slegs rietsuiker en enkelbronkakao te gebruik. As u 'n aanhanger is van sjokolade-byvoegings en geurmiddels, is Rogue Chocolatier miskien nie u eerste keuse nie, aangesien Gasko meen dat dit 'n vermorsde poging is om regtig goeie sjokolade te maak en dan neute daaroor te gooi. Maar as u 'n suiwer, eersteklas sjokoladestafie wil hê? Selfs Martha Stewart is 'n fan.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Potato chips, corn twists, and sandwich cookies are all high-demand, chocolate-dipped snacks sold by Bedré Fine Chocolates. But the company’s unusual cacao-based snacks aren’t the only thing setting this American chocolatier apart from other confectioners. It’s also the only U.S. chocolate factory owned by a Native American Tribe. In 2000, the Chickasaw Nation purchased the company, at the time operated out of a former elementary school in south-central Oklahoma. Since then, the company has created local jobs while boosting tourism—not to mention producing a variety of fancier chocolates such as its fudge, filled "meltaways," and filled chocolate bars.

5. FRAN'S CHOCOLATES // SEATTLE

If the White House is asking for more boxes of your chocolate, you know they're doing something right. Seattle-based Fran’s Chocolates became a favorite of not only the Obamas when they were on the campaign trail in 2008, but also their Secret Service agents (despite President Obama’s reported unwillingness to share). Fran’s Chocolates opened in 1982 under the charge of Fran Bigelow, a chocolatier inspired by a trip to Paris, and has created high-quality truffles, caramels, chocolate bars, and dipped fruits and nuts since.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

You may have to throw an elbow to get a bite of these Midwestern candies. Christopher Elbow Chocolates is known for its small batch, artful chocolates, as well as its lengthy line of customers waiting to snag a few treats. Chocolates are hand-painted like small canvases, but the flavors—such as citrus praline, mango basil, and whiskey walnut—are the real masterpiece. But owner Christopher Elbow isn't just focused on the final look chocolates are made from scratch featuring fresh ingredients and no preservatives—meaning they have a short shelf-life (which shouldn’t be an issue for chocolate lovers).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

The owner of Bon Bon Bon was told that she’d have to move to a big city for her chocolate shop dreams to be successful. But Michigan native Alexandra Clark chose to stay close to home, sharing artisan truffles and chocolates in nearly 100 flavors with Hamtranck (and nearby Detroit) chocolate lovers. Since 2014, Bon Bon Bon has seen staggering support for the tiny chocolate treats, selling more than 2000 per day of its artisan chocolates such as Goat Honey, Margarita, Sticky Bun, and Johnny Cashew. While many flavors are seasonal, like Fried Green Tomato and Caprese, Bon Bon Bon takes time to honor its hometown with a specialty "Detroit Collection," with flavors inspired by the city’s classic culinary tastes.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

If you can’t easily pronounce this chocolate brand’s name right off, that’s OK—tasting it is more important anyway. Considered a tech start-up meets culinary delights kind of company, TCHO (pronounced "choh") relies on its own cloud-based technology to determine the best time to pick cacao beans for maximum flavor and minimal rejection for farmers. The end result of this technological influence is a variety of bean-to-bar flavored chocolates, such as Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino, and Coconut Crisp.

9. NO CHEWING ALLOWED // NEW YORK CITY

You don’t have to visit France to find mouthwatering chocolate truffles—No Chewing Allowed takes a 75-year-old French recipe and creates swoon-worthy truffles here in the States. Beyond the classic truffle, chocolate lovers can enjoy Coffee Beans, Candied Orange Peels, and Salted Toffee flavors, among others. As for the name? Owner Lior Genzel means it. The best way to savor a truffle is to let it slowly melt on your tongue, otherwise you’ll miss out on the full chocolatey experience.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Chocolate is known to have some health benefits, and K’ul Chocolate aims to make the best use of them. Owner Peter Kelsey is a cancer survivor on a mission to show that high-quality cacao has healthful antioxidants and glycemic index levels. Following radiation treatment, chocolate was one of only three flavors Kelsey could taste (next to coffee and protein), and in 2015, he launched K’ul Chocolate with the idea of returning chocolate to its roots as a health food. Since then, the company has focused on bean-to-bar chocolate in Minneapolis, featuring pumpkin seeds, guarana, and other nutritional ingredients in its bars. And with chocolate bars created to boost endurance and restore electrolytes, there’s no reason to feel guilty for indulging your taste buds.


10 American Chocolate Companies You've Got to Try

Countries like France and Switzerland may be world-famous for their exceptional chocolate, but they’re not the only places that have a variety of finely crafted, processed cacao. These U.S. chocolate companies will have you looking no further than your own backyard for some of the best in artisanal chocolate.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

is known for its specialty bars made from organic, fair-trade cacao specifically sourced by owners Joe Whinney and Debra Music—former spouses-turned-business partners. Since 2006, Theo Chocolate has created "bean-to-bar" chocolate, meaning cacao beans are roasted, ground, and turned to chocolately bliss in one location. At times, Theo Chocolate is so slammed for orders that it manufactures chocolate bars—like its coconut dark chocolate and black rice quinoa crunch—24 hours a day.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Many small-scale chocolate creators look for quality ingredients sourced from organic cacao farms to produce high-quality bars. Recchiuti takes its chocolate production one step further by creating bars with local ingredients, including Napa Valley champagne. Owners Michael and Jacky Recchiuti opened the artisanal chocolate company in 1997 and focused on producing small-batch chocolates featuring quality ingredients, often sourcing fresh herbs from area farmers’ markets. Plus, earlier this year Recchiuti teamed up with brewmasters from two California breweries to craft beer that needs no pairing: a chocolate stout featuring the Recchiuti’s signature chocolate and burnt caramel syrups.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // THREE RIVERS, MASSACHUSETTS

is run by one man, features two simple ingredients, and is based out of Three Rivers, Massachusetts. The small bean-to-bar chocolate producer, lead by Colin Gasko, focuses on highlighting chocolate's underlying flavors by using only cane sugar and single-source cacao. If you’re a fan of chocolate add-ins and flavoring, Rogue Chocolatier may not be your first pick, as Gasko believes "it’s a wasted effort to make really great chocolate and then throw some nuts on it." But when you're craving a pure, premium chocolate bar? Even Martha Stewart is a fan.

If the White House is asking for more boxes of your chocolate, you know they're doing something right. Seattle-based Fran’s Chocolates became a favorite of not only the Obamas when they were on the campaign trail in 2008, but also their Secret Service agents (despite President Obama’s reported unwillingness to share). Fran’s Chocolates opened in 1982 under the charge of Fran Bigelow, a chocolatier inspired by a trip to Paris, and has created high-quality truffles, caramels, chocolate bars, and dipped fruits and nuts since.

6. CHRISTOPHER ELBOW CHOCOLATES // KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

You may have to throw an elbow to get a bite of these Midwestern candies. Christopher Elbow Chocolates is known for its small batch, artful chocolates, as well as its lengthy line of customers waiting to snag a few treats. Chocolates are hand-painted like small canvases, but the flavors—such as citrus praline, mango basil, and whiskey walnut—are the real masterpiece. But owner Christopher Elbow isn't just focused on the final look chocolates are made from scratch featuring fresh ingredients and no preservatives—meaning they have a short shelf-life (which shouldn’t be an issue for chocolate lovers).

7. BON BON BON // HAMTRANCK, MICHIGAN

The owner of Bon Bon Bon was told that she’d have to move to a big city for her chocolate shop dreams to be successful. But Michigan native Alexandra Clark chose to stay close to home, sharing artisan truffles and chocolates in nearly 100 flavors with Hamtranck (and nearby Detroit) chocolate lovers. Since 2014, Bon Bon Bon has seen staggering support for the tiny chocolate treats, selling more than 2000 per day of its artisan chocolates such as Goat Honey, Margarita, Sticky Bun, and Johnny Cashew. While many flavors are seasonal, like Fried Green Tomato and Caprese, Bon Bon Bon takes time to honor its hometown with a specialty "Detroit Collection," with flavors inspired by the city’s classic culinary tastes.

8. TCHO // SAN FRANCISCO

If you can’t easily pronounce this chocolate brand’s name right off, that’s OK—tasting it is more important anyway. Considered a tech start-up meets culinary delights kind of company, TCHO (pronounced "choh") relies on its own cloud-based technology to determine the best time to pick cacao beans for maximum flavor and minimal rejection for farmers. The end result of this technological influence is a variety of bean-to-bar flavored chocolates, such as Mint Chip Gelato, Mokaccino, and Coconut Crisp.

9. NO CHEWING ALLOWED // NEW YORK CITY

You don’t have to visit France to find mouthwatering chocolate truffles—No Chewing Allowed takes a 75-year-old French recipe and creates swoon-worthy truffles here in the States. Beyond the classic truffle, chocolate lovers can enjoy Coffee Beans, Candied Orange Peels, and Salted Toffee flavors, among others. As for the name? Owner Lior Genzel means it. The best way to savor a truffle is to let it slowly melt on your tongue, otherwise you’ll miss out on the full chocolatey experience.

10. K'UL CHOCOLATE // MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA

Chocolate is known to have some health benefits, and K’ul Chocolate aims to make the best use of them. Owner Peter Kelsey is a cancer survivor on a mission to show that high-quality cacao has healthful antioxidants and glycemic index levels. Following radiation treatment, chocolate was one of only three flavors Kelsey could taste (next to coffee and protein), and in 2015, he launched K’ul Chocolate with the idea of returning chocolate to its roots as a health food. Since then, the company has focused on bean-to-bar chocolate in Minneapolis, featuring pumpkin seeds, guarana, and other nutritional ingredients in its bars. And with chocolate bars created to boost endurance and restore electrolytes, there’s no reason to feel guilty for indulging your taste buds.


10 American Chocolate Companies You've Got to Try

Countries like France and Switzerland may be world-famous for their exceptional chocolate, but they’re not the only places that have a variety of finely crafted, processed cacao. These U.S. chocolate companies will have you looking no further than your own backyard for some of the best in artisanal chocolate.

1. THEO CHOCOLATE // SEATTLE

is known for its specialty bars made from organic, fair-trade cacao specifically sourced by owners Joe Whinney and Debra Music—former spouses-turned-business partners. Since 2006, Theo Chocolate has created "bean-to-bar" chocolate, meaning cacao beans are roasted, ground, and turned to chocolately bliss in one location. At times, Theo Chocolate is so slammed for orders that it manufactures chocolate bars—like its coconut dark chocolate and black rice quinoa crunch—24 hours a day.

2. RECCHIUTI // SAN FRANCISCO

Many small-scale chocolate creators look for quality ingredients sourced from organic cacao farms to produce high-quality bars. Recchiuti takes its chocolate production one step further by creating bars with local ingredients, including Napa Valley champagne. Owners Michael and Jacky Recchiuti opened the artisanal chocolate company in 1997 and focused on producing small-batch chocolates featuring quality ingredients, often sourcing fresh herbs from area farmers’ markets. Plus, earlier this year Recchiuti teamed up with brewmasters from two California breweries to craft beer that needs no pairing: a chocolate stout featuring the Recchiuti’s signature chocolate and burnt caramel syrups.

3. ROGUE CHOCOLATIER // THREE RIVERS, MASSACHUSETTS

is run by one man, features two simple ingredients, and is based out of Three Rivers, Massachusetts. The small bean-to-bar chocolate producer, lead by Colin Gasko, focuses on highlighting chocolate's underlying flavors by using only cane sugar and single-source cacao. If you’re a fan of chocolate add-ins and flavoring, Rogue Chocolatier may not be your first pick, as Gasko believes "it’s a wasted effort to make really great chocolate and then throw some nuts on it." But when you're craving a pure, premium chocolate bar? Even Martha Stewart is a fan.

4. BEDRÉ FINE CHOCOLATES // DAVIS, OKLAHOMA

Potato chips, corn twists, and sandwich cookies are all high-demand, chocolate-dipped snacks sold by Bedré Fine Chocolates. But the company’s unusual cacao-based snacks aren’t the only thing setting this American chocolatier apart from other confectioners. It’s also the only U.S. chocolate factory owned by a Native American Tribe. In 2000, the Chickasaw Nation purchased the company, at the time operated out of a former elementary school in south-central Oklahoma. Since then, the company has created local jobs while boosting tourism—not to mention producing a variety of fancier chocolates such as its fudge, filled "meltaways," and filled chocolate bars.
