Employee Spotlight: Anna Daniell
Today we celebrate Anna Daniell who has been with Chocolopolis for almost six years. Anna has become an indispensible part of our team. While she's done almost every job we have at some point, she recently chose to take a less visible role, focusing on bookkeeping and merchandising/operations. She works with us part-time while going to school to get a degree (her second) in bookkeeping. Read about Anna in our blog post, and then join us for happy hour to taste some of Anna's favorite chocolate bars.

Book a Chocolate Tasting Experience
A Chocolopolis Chocolate Tasting is an experience to be shared with colleagues, friends and family in a fun, hands-on environment. Anyone who loves chocolate or appreciates fine wines, coffees, spirits or other craft foods will enjoy a chocolate tasting experience.
Our private chocolate tasting events are a great way to boost team morale or to thank clients. They are also a fantastic way to gather family and friends for milestone occasions such as birthdays and bridal showers, and they are popular as university alumni gatherings.
Chocolate tastings give you and your guests the opportunity to taste and compare chocolate made with cacao from different parts of the world while learning about craft chocolate and cacao farming and production. Appropriate for all ages and occasions, your guests will try a range of chocolate made by small, artisan chocolate makers who specialize in the craft of turning fine, flavor cacao beans into silky, smooth and scrumptious chocolate.
During a one-hour guided tasting you will learn to use all five senses to enjoy and discover the flavor profiles of chocolate from 5 different cacao-growing regions, and to compare them with a childhood favorite. We will explore the rise of the artisan bean-to-bar and craft chocolate movements, and how cacao varietal, fermentation and production techniques influence the quality of chocolate. Our tasting ends with fun, sweet treats.
Class participants receive a 10% discount on purchases made during onsite events, and participants in offsite events receive a coupon for a 10% discount on their next purchase.
Tastings for groups of 10-30 people will be held in one of our community lounges at our store location at the Interbay WorkLofts. You're welcome to book an onsite tasting for fewer than ten people, but the fee will be based on our ten-person minimum.
We offer offsite guided chocolate tasting classes for larger groups and company events. These have proven to be very popular as morale-building events for employees, and as thank-you events for clients. We have done offsite tastings for groups ranging from 10 people to 1,000 people. If you would like to host a chocolate tasting for a large group, please contact us to discuss format and pricing. You can reach us at (206) 282-0776 or email@example.com.
|Group Size||Onsite Prices|
|Up to 10 people||$300|
|Up to 30 people||$550|

If you are located more than 5 miles from our location, or if there is no access to free parking at your venue, we will apply an additional $15 transportation charge.
WINE & SPIRIT PAIRINGS:
We welcome wine and spirit pairings with our guided chocolate tastings. While brown liquors such as scotch, whiskey and bourbon pair well with chocolate, choosing the appropriate wines to pair with chocolate can be more of a challenge. Please contact us for information about scheduling a wine/spirit and chocolate pairing. Pairing events must comply with all regulations of the Washington State Liquor Control Board. Event planner must present a valid Banquet License two weeks in advance of the event.
We’re also happy to work with you to create customized tasting events tailored to meet your particular needs. Customers have booked chocolate tastings for employee morale events, dinner parties, professional receptions, bridal showers, bachelor parties, birthday parties, and other celebrations. We can also design a chocolate tasting that complements a particular theme or interest.
For example, tastings could spotlight:
Chocolate containing cacao from certain countries or regions (e.g. Mexico, Africa, Southeast Asia)
Chocolate makers from particular countries (e.g. France, Italy)
Chocolate makers focused on fair trade and sustainability
Chocolate with particular flavor profiles (e.g. fruity, earthy, floral)
All dark, milk or white chocolate
All kosher chocolate
The possibilities are endless!
Please call 206-282-0776 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a tasting or to discuss specifics of the event you would like to hold.
