Bean to bar chocolate made in Los Angeles
Letterpress Chocolate handcrafts single origin chocolate in small batches, starting with the best cacao beans we can find. We carefully sort and roast to bring out the fullest potential of the flavor profile. We grind in stone melangeurs for at least 48 hours before pouring into storage to age for at least a month. We do all this in our tiny factory in Los Angeles, California.
We pay premium prices for our cacao, working with sustainable agroforestry and biodiverse ecosystems so that we can have a brighter future. In many cases, the farms and co-ops we work with are Organic certified.
Our unrefined cane sugar is always organic certified & our bars are vegan, with no soy, wheat, or dairy.
We travel to meet farmers in person at the source – Peru, Guatemala, Belize, Dominican Republic, and beyond. We’re always looking for new ways to help farmers and small co-ops out, and with us, you can help too! We pay a premium to the farmers to encourage them to keep growing fantastic, lower-yielding and delicate cacao, rather than tearing out and planting bulk over-productive commodity cacao or other crops.
