It all started one day years ago, when Michael and Curtis were walking down the street and Michael said "I think, in my next life, I want to do something with chocolate". The following Christmas, Curtis gifted Michael with some of the best books on chocolate and confectionary production and the rest is history. We highly recommend them! | Location : 3352 Grand Ave.
