Established in 2006 in Portland Oregon, Cacao featured a curated selection of chocolate from around the world, including the best premium solid chocolate bars from craft producers, selected chocolates from favorite regional chocolatiers and house-made drinking and hot chocolates.
For us, this business has always been about the people. The talented and innovative makers, the loyal and dedicated customers, our tireless and devoted employees. Over the years we have learned and grown along with a vibrant and rich community of people who love chocolate and after nearly 15 years it is time to say goodbye to this chapter in our lives and close our store. It has been our distinct pleasure to occupy this physical space but more importantly, for you to allow us to occupy space in your lives. Your enthusiasm, generosity and kindness has known no bounds and we will remember it always. To our amazing staff, the global chocolate community, the Portland food community, and all of our friends and family, we cannot thank you enough.
As the market has grown and consumers have become more knowledgeable our role has changed. When we opened we helped introduce the world to a new way of thinking about and talking about chocolate, representing the first wave of American craft chocolate makers. The discovery and exploration continue but we are reevaluating where we fit into that and what the future holds.
