“Named after the French Broad River, which runs through Asheville, French Broad Chocolates has been shaped in many ways by the charming mountain town.” – Forbes, 2018
French Broad Chocolate Maker
In our small factory in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, we roast, crack, winnow, grind, conche and temper chocolate in small batches. By directly importing fine flavor cacao from small farmers, we create a deeper connection to the source. We summon the food geek within to elicit the best flavors each bean has to offer. We do all of this because we seek a closer relationship with our food, and we want to share it with you.
Every chocolate-maker’s process is slightly different: grinding media, air exposure, times, temperatures, aging… there are so many variables to tweak! Our small-batch process is unique to our company, and continues to evolve as we learn and grow as chocolate-makers. Suffice it to say, we are driven by our principles to make the best chocolate we can, with intention and integrity at every step.
