WE ARE THE CAPITAL REGION'S

FIRST CRAFT

CHOCOLATE COMPANY

PRIMO = the finest quality ingredients, first nations and run by cousins. For ten years my cousin Jay and I have been working on urban + tropical farms, foraging for medicinal foods, cooking for my community and playing with chocolate. In 2017 I officially became a chocolate maker with a lil help. We named our family-owned business, "Primo," to pay homage to the indigenous Aztec + Mayan cultures our cocoa beans come from and from our desire to make the most potent chocolate on the planet. 

 

Our desire for potency is achieved through using directly traded heirloom cacao beans that have been well-fermented, aged and slow roasted, lightly sweetening it using single origin unrefined sugars like coconut, maple + panela and then infusing our chocolate with therapeutic herbs, spices and fungi. We use exclusively compostable packaging and strive to up-cycle "waste" products whenever possible. Thank you so much for joining us in this eclectic movement.

 

You may visit us at our booth at the Troy Farmer's Market every Saturday from 9-2PM, located by our friends YesFolk, R.S. Taylor Brewery and Cricket Creek Farm. We serve hot and cold chocolate bevs, cacao husk cold brew tea, vegan + gluten-free brownies and the latest collection of our chocolate bars. Our online shop is open 24/7
