It’s never not a good time for chocolate. Here in Atlanta, local chocolatiers have been producing hand-crafted chocolates since the 1970s. Whether passed down from family generations, or as the dream from a traveling couple, these four shops offer exquisite and unique crafted chocolates to eat today or the other 364 days of the year.
The owners of Xocolatl, Elaine Read & Matt Weyandt, have a love story that couples dream of. The pair lived in Costa Rica and worked with cacao farmers and artisanal chocolatiers, and have taken their experiences to open their own micro-factory “bean-to-bar” chocolate shop. The Krog Street Market shop offers a variety of single-origin dark chocolate bars, where the cacao is sourced from Peru, Madagascar, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. It’s rare to find chocolate without cocoa butter, but their chocolate is made with just cocoa and cane sugar. Each bar offers a different flavor profile that ranges from earthy and nutty to buttery and fruity. Or, try something a little on the cooler side.
