FOR BAKING (AND NIBBLING)

We like to look at every aspect of craft chocolate with a critical eye. In this case we re-designed the chocolate chip shape: square and faceted, with the edges tapered as thin as possible, perfect for our enormous own “Very Best Chocolate Chip Cookies,” famous in our cafés. You can find this recipe and more in our book, Making Chocolate: from Bean to Bar to S’more.

Each chip is made from the same chocolate in our single-origin bars, each origin with its own individual nuances and tasting notes. View more

Single-Origin &
Two Ingredients

We travel to origin to develop relationships with the farmers and producers who grow and process fine cacao. In San Francisco, we craft chocolate from just two ingredients: cocoa beans and sugar (no soy lecithin, no vanilla, and no additional cocoa butter). Any flavor notes you taste can be attributed to the bean and how it was grown, fermented, sorted, refined, and roasted.

In the Kitchen

The large facet size provides "chocolate pools" in oversized chocolate chip cookies, thumbprint cookies, or s'mores. Placed in the oven, the chocolate melts just enough to retain its shape without losing its glossy appearance.

About the Shape

Our friend Remy Labesque, senior industrial designer at Tesla Inc., designed these molds and unique faceted chips for us. The traditional chocolate chip shape is optimized for the industrial manufacturing process, not necessarily for baking. Our chocolate facets feature a flat, pyramidal shape that allows the chocolate to melt on your tongue, the recommended technique for tasting chocolate. The end result is a faceted chip that is ideal for both baking and nibbling.   

“When heated, they shine like glass but keep a recognizable shape and enviable texture.”
