David and Leslie Senk began their chocolate journey in Milipitas, CA before moving to their current factory in Spencer, TN. They have a long roster of chocolates made with cacao from different origins, changing origins often as they find great cacao. For them, that's the fun of making craft chocolate. Their exacting standards for choosing well-fermented cacao beans results in chocolate with complex flavors, bringing out the unique notes of each origin. Truly a craft chocolate maker, a batch of chocolate may only yield 100 bars. We consider Areté Fine Chocolate one of the best craft chocolate makers in the country right now. If you're ever near Spencer, TN, make sure to visit their chocolate factory. They lovingly restored a 1920 brick building in Spencer before moving themselves and their chocolate factory from the Bay Area.
