Soma Chocolate Maker

Soma 


Soma has not yet begun selling to wholesale customers again. We're waiting to place a new order.

The year was 2003 and the idea of creating a small, funky chocolate factory was born in the minds of David Castellan and Cynthia Leung. The concept: finding new ways to create and enjoy chocolate.

On making our first batches of chocolate, it was immediately apparent that we had stumbled upon something magical and that our future would be tied to it. In cacao beans, nature has made the perfect “Soma”, a mystical substance mentioned in the Rig Veda and later by Aldous Huxley in the novel Brave New World. It was time to start exploring this new frontier.

Our first space was a in tiny corner of a former whisky distillery. We started off roasting and winnowing cacao beans, refining and conching our own chocolate, spinning gelato, baking cookies, making hot chocolates, and producing a line of truffles. (whew!) A small retail portion would fold out during the day, and like a transformer, fold back in at night. It was here that we started meeting a community of very interesting folks with a healthy appetite for great chocolate.

Fast forward to the future, with the loyal support of our chocolate-obsessed customers (thank-you!) we’ve grown to 2 stores, a small chocolate factory, a network of wholesalers, and a small team of wonderfully kooky and talented people we are proud to work along side with.

The love and curiosity of all things chocolate propels us on as we continue to seek out great cacao beans, explore more ingredients, and have nice chats with our regulars and newcomers.
