Day of the Dead 2018


In October 2011, I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, to experience the Day of the Dead | Día de los Muertos up close. I immersed myself in the colorful festivities and enjoyed following the spiritual, floral and culinary ritual as it unfolded. The highlight of my trip was working with Zapotec Chef Reyna Mendoza. Together, we made preparations for the celebration including metate-ground chocolate, mole and champurrado. During my visit, I gained a deep appreciation for the cultural richness of the Day of the Dead festival and came away inspired to create a unique collection of chocolate in commemoration.   

Like wine aged in French oak, our chocolate ages for one year in a variety of ingredients including orange peel (Zest 2014), honeycomb (Swarm 2015), coffee beans (Pulse 2016) and Buddha's Hand or citron peel (Embrace 2017).

For 2018, we are pleased to offer Blush, a 73% estate blend dark chocolate aged in rose buds and petals, permitting the floral aroma to delicately infuse the chocolate.
