About Us

custom imagePopping a square of Bonnat Madagascar chocolate into her mouth, Chocolopolis founder Lauren Adler was surprised to find bursts of fruit taking over her senses. Lauren had never tasted chocolate quite like this. It was incredibly fruity and wonderful, not bitter as she had expected, and its complex flavors lasted well after the chocolate had melted. Lauren was intrigued by everything about the chocolate. Its flavor, its geographic origins, its French makers, and its siblings, who lined the shelves with names like Ceylan, Equateur and Puerto Cabello.

Despite her lifelong love of chocolate, Lauren discovered that she had never tasted the best that chocolate had to offer. She'd spent years eating chocolate full of sugar, oils, and other ingredients that masked the true flavor of the beans (and probably for good reason).

Lauren had found her calling. In 2008 Lauren opened Chocolopolis, a retail chocolate store dedicated to educating chocolate lovers about the finer points of bean-to-bar, craft chocolate and artisan chocolate confections.

As Lauren developed her palate further, she and her talented team developed their own chocolate truffles and confections, drawing inspiration from the world's finest chocolatiers and the wonderful traditions of hte world's great cacao-growing regions. Each Chocolopolis chocolate bar and confection is crafted by hand using chocolate made with fine flavor cacao. Our team evaluates the flavor profile of a chocolate before pairing it with other ingredients, ensuring that our chocolate confections are chocolate forward - built with the flavor profile of the chocolate in mind.

We hand craft our chocolates in small batches in Seattle. You can find Chocolopolis chocolates at select specialty food retailers around the Pacific Northwest. We are proud to have won awards for our own hand-crafted confections on an international stage.
