First Bean to Bar Chocolate Factory in Los Angeles @chocovivo
The First Bean to Bar Chocolate Factory

in Los Angeles!

We’ve been on hiatus since the Abbot Kinney shop closed in January.  Six months later we are about to open a bigger and better experience.  It’s always been the goal to give you honest chocolate – from grower to table. From the transparency and awe of seeing the ingredients go into your chocolate, to seeing, smelling, hearing and tasting the purity of cacao is how we should experience chocolate, just as the ancient people in Mesoamerica did thousands of years ago.  This is a new beginning of ChocoVivo, and we hope that you will enjoy the ride.  Thank you to all the customers, from farmers market beginnings to Abbot Kinney shoppers.  It’s been a long journey. And it will only get better.  – Patricia
