CRAFTED WITH JOY

at chuao chocolatier we believe joy is a positive, grateful energy that connects with people and awakens their curiosity towards a higher vibe. in engineering terms, love is equivalent to potential energy while joy is equivalent to kinetic energy. we believe joy is an action and an expression. that is the wonder of joy. we ask all to choose joy with us, and together let's activate change through chocolate to make this world a more unified, joyful, and colorful place.

“joy through the experience of that instant when everything else fades away and only the sense of being one with the chocolate that melts in our mouths is present”
— chef michael

THE JOY OF QUALITY

we are crafters of pleasure through chocolate and delight in engaging your senses with creative flavor combinations and decadent chocolate experiences. we use european chocolate making techniques, crafting our confections with close attention to the quality of each small batch from start to finish. our chocolate is crafted with our proprietary blend of fair trade certified chocolate, offering a truly exquisite flavor profile. we use recipes in a kitchen, not formulas in a lab, and believe that the best ingredients are found in nature and crafted with care. our chocolate reflects a commitment to fresh ingredients, free of artificial preservatives, additives, fat substitutes, colorings, and flavorings.

Sustainable Joy

our ancestors instilled in us a respect for cacao and the people who grow it. therefore, we partner with purveyors who share our interest in quality ingredients, sustainable farming, and ethical business practices. we are working on bringing all aspects of chuao up to sustainable standards through our relationships. by focusing our sourcing on quality, environmentally and socially conscious ingredients, we are seeking to ensure that sustainable joy can be extended to every part of our products and business.
