• Chocolate San Jose Minneapolis


Chocolate San Jose Minneapolis is a Latino women owned business that offers the best chocolate in the USA. We aim to elevate the perception of chocolate from negative indulgence to a guilt-free, low sugar, sustainable and socially responsible choice.

  • Farm-to-Bar Transparency: My family in Ecuador grows cacao (since 1930), selects the best cacao, and turns it into chocolate.
  • Low sugar and delicious: We have perfected a unique fermentation process that produces a delicious chocolate that doesn’t have the astringency and acidity found in most high % chocolates, therefore, we add less sugar than other brands.
  • Sustainably grown: Our farming practices have been endorsed by UTZ Certification and the Rainforest Alliance. As of 2014, UTZ Certified is the largest program for sustainable farming of coffee and cocoa in the world. Rainforest Alliance Certified farms comply with 10 standards set in place by the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) including ecosystem conservation, wildlife protection, and fair treatment and good working conditions for workers.
  • Social responsibility: Every farm worker receives free healthcare, education, and a percentage of the annual profits.
  • Direct and Fair Trade: Our family business imports its chocolate from Ecuador to Minnesota, one part of the family to another, creating a beneficial link between the two.

With this unique connection, we are able to bring our single farm, sustainably certified, premium Chocolate Hacienda San José, at a convenient price for all families in America while providing fair pay to the families that cultivate the cocoa as livelihood.
