LetterPress Chocolates story starts in high school, where founders David and Corey met. Their first experience with cacao was in 2011 when they traveled to St. Lucia on vacation and happened to stop at a cacao plantation where they got to taste the pulp from cacao pods for the first time.
Two years later the couple began a chocolate blog called Little Brown Squares which exclusively featured reviews of bean to bar chocolate bars.
David began purchasing small quantities of cacao beans from chocolate makers and brokers and started making his own batches. Eventually making chocolate that tasted good enough to start selling to fellow employees. Today LetterPress Chocolate has its very own factory where you can visit and even complete a tour with tastings.
This bar is a collaboration bar between LetterPress Chocolate and Alibi Coffee. Using LetterPress' award-winning 70% Ashanti Ghana Chocolate and Alibi's Mugshot Espresso Blend, this amazing combination makes for the perfect coffee chocolate bar.
