Fresco Chocolate

Founder: Rob Anderson
Location: Lynden, WA
Sources of cacao: All over the world
Characteristic: Rob's chocolate is a 'lesson in a bar', helping us compare bars with slight differences.

Rob brings an educational approach to his chocolate making, helping us understand how changing the variables of conching or roasting fundamentally alters taste. We loved this Peru 225 Recipe, for its surprising cooked banana notes!
