August 17, 2018Open hours Saturday 9 am - 1pm. Dear Chocolate loving folk, Here we are, another Friday, another end of the week. My second last weekly newsletter, after an 8 year stretch! The picture above is our first trip that we did, to Nicaragua, with all of us piled into Giff’s truck at La Dahlia farm. What a great trip that way. So much has changed in Nicaragua since then… Momotombo needs our help moving all the inventory they sent us for safe keeping. The more we can move tomorrow, the more money we can send them, and not have to send it back when we close. MOMOTOMBO Those of you who ..read more

August 3, 2018 Open tomorrow (Saturday) from 9am until 1pm. Hi there! This one is going to be an unusually short one, as I am savoring the last drops of summer coming to a close, school starts in about ten days, and I plan to squeeze out every bit of yumminess before it is time to pack lunches and get breakfast happening on schedule. So, as the title suggests, we have some new bars in, Bonnat Kaori, Los Colorados, El Rosario… Sibu is back (cardamom and coffee, chai and more) Pralus has a new Barre Infernale Nougat, and we also have the Praline and hazelnuts bar (my favorite!).

July 27, 2018Currently open Saturdays only, from 9 am - 1pm.  This afternoon I want to share what is on my mind and heart as of late. And reflect on some moments of the past 8+ years of running The Chocolate Garage. Note: If you would like to scroll swiftly down to the bars we are featuring and a short update on our donor campaign status, feel free to zip down to the bottom! Sometimes we lose sight of what we do, and we lose sight of how others receive what we do. As I got bogged down over the years working like a mad (Silicon Valley) woman, I lost sight and even lost the pleasure of the wo ..read more

July 20, 2018Aloha and another Happy Friday to you all! I posted the above image on Instagram this week, because even though I am out of town and taking a long vacation (and writing very short newsletters), this is a bar I was really excited to bring into The Chocolate Garage. The beans are from Uganda, hardly a famous origin for specialty cacao, and yet a bar that really surprised me, in a very positive way. Jeff Steinberg is the driver behind the bar, not only is he the one who works to bring together these beans from the Semuliki Forest area, but he also decided to try to turn these beans ..read more
