We've been enjoying the chocolates of Joan Coukos from Chocolat Moderne since we opened in 2008. Joan brings incredible passion and attention to quality in her hand crafted chocolates, which include fantastic drinking chocolate (Moderne Oasis, Kama Sutra), filled bars (e.g., La Dolce Grapefruit, Smoked Sea Salt Caramel) and classy confections (The Kimono Collection). Joan is great at creating chocolates that build on classic chocolate foundations, and she knows how to be incredibly creative and modern as well. We'll be sampling some of her popular drinking chocolate, Moderne Oasis, as well as her Sea Salt Toffee bars and other treats.

One of the founding members of the Craft Chocolate Makers of America, Art Pollard brings passion and perfection to his chocolate-making craft. Join us for samples of his latest batches of chocolate, including one of our favorite bars, Dos Rios (Dominican Republic), and a new bar for us, the Ocumare (Venezuela) milk chocolate bar. Dos Rios brings beautiful floral and bergamot notes to the table, and the Ocumare milk offers honey, caramel and marshmallow notes.
Attend a Chocolate Tasting Class
Similar to a wine tasting, a chocolate tasting provides you with the opportunity to taste and compare chocolate made with cacao from different parts of the world while learning about artisan chocolate and cacao farming and production. Class participants taste 5 single-origin chocolate bars made by the finest small batch chocolate makers and compare them with a childhood favorite. After the tasting choose a cup of drinking chocolate from our menu and a Chocolopolis truffle. Our chocolate tasting classes provide an opportunity to discover the best chocolate the world has to offer!
Classes are $30 per person and last about 45 minutes. Class participants receive a 10% discount on all purchases during the class. Give us a call at 206-282-0776 to sign up for a class.

Please call us at (206) 282-0776 to sign up for a class. Classes hold 4-8 people. We need a minimum of 4 people to hold a class.
Frequent Bar Club
Our frequent bar club is for those of you who like to try a lot of chocolate! Here's how it works. For every different bar of chocolate you purchase, we'll mark your frequent bar card with the name of the bar and a stamp. Once you've purchased 10 different bars, you receive a bar of equal or lesser value, free (the value is based on the most expensive bar listed on your card). Each bar must be a different one, so purchasing 10 of one bar counts as 1 stamp, but purchasing 2 different bars counts for 2 stamps. We hope this encourages you to try many different bars of chocolate and expand your palate. Signing up for our club means that you agree to be on our newsletter mailing list and that we sign you up as a frequent customer. This is a great opportunity to journey the world of chocolate!
