Based in Woodbridge, VA, Potomac Chocolate was founded in 2010, and is the first bean-to-bar chocolate maker in the Washington, DC area.
From my small workshop, I make Potomac’s fine chocolate using a traditional, artisan approach. Hand-crafting every bar, I work to coax out only the best flavors from the cacao bean in every step of the process—from roasting, cracking and winnowing the cacao beans, refining and conching, to tempering and molding the final bars. In order to highlight the beans’ flavor, my chocolate is made from the bare minimum of ingredients: cacao beans and sugar, with no added vanilla, cocoa butter or emulsifier.
