2020 Collection Box

Dandelion Chocolate

When we think about our year in terms of chocolate bars, we see a ribbon that spans 10 countries, numerous partnerships with producers and importers, and 30-plus months of roast tests and flavor-profile development. It's an entire calendar of countless kilos of beans, molds filled and released en masse, and thousands of bars passing through our hands.

Paul's team has been squirreling away chocolate to keep this assortment of bars well-rounded and complete, and we can't wait for you to hold the collection in your hands. The strapped, fabric-covered accordion box, designed in collaboration with acclaimed SF artist, designer, and builder Yvonne Mouser, is a time capsule of a year of chocolate-factory passion and production.

These 10 chocolate bars—some of which we'll never make again, and others which are dwindling in number—are presented in a handsome, gift-ready box that is one of our product maker's most time-consuming labors of love. Ten panels inside each collection box are glued into place by hand at our San Francisco factory. Each bar insert follows, and then all ten bars are nested into place. The accordion is carefully closed, and hand-tied to keep it snug.

Our 2020 Collection features a thoughtfully curated selection of ten 70% chocolate bars that best represent our year:

  • Piura Blanco, Peru 2015 Harvest
  • Mantuano, Venezuela 2016 Harvest
  • Zorzal Estate, Dominican Republic 2016 Harvest

  • Gola Rainforest, Sierra Leone 2017 Harvest

  • Maya Mountain, Belize 2018 Harvest
