Hey look Cacao is on the Buzzfeed list of 27 best hot chocolates in the world!
Thanks to everyone who came to our anniversary party!! We had an amazing time. So many wonderful people came out to support us. It really was touching to see. We value the community of producers and consumers around us so much and think of each of you with much gratitude.
Special thanks to our very special guests came so far to share their chocolate-
Seneca Klaussen of Lonohana Chocolate
Sunita De Toureill of The Chocolate Garage
Colin Gasko (And Viva and Sabine!) of Rogue Chocolate
The chocolate was delicious and enjoyed by all!
Summer is holding on a little bit longer and we are now serving
Arbequina Olive Oil ice cream from Salt & Straw at our 13th Ave location. It is a truly remarkable ice cream and one of the best we have ever tasted.
We are proud to be the first establishment in Portland to scoop Salt & Straw outside of their stores!
The olive oil pairs perfectly with all of our drinking chocolates to make a decadent drinking chocolate pour-over.
The warm, rich chocolate combining with the cool, fruity, lightly salted olive oil is transcendent.
Olive Oil ice cream paired with Caffé Vita espresso to make a mean affogato.
We haven’t made many changes to our menu since we opened almost 8 years ago as we only add something when we feel it is an exceptional addition. Allison Jones wrote a great bit about it in Portland Monthly Magazine here PORTLAND MONTHLY.
Come try this delicious late summer treat.
Stop by and try our drinking chocolate ice cream pour over topped with Craque.
Local chocolate wizard Sebastian Cisneros at Cocanú introduces Craque; a simple yet genius and totally addicting new treat in the form of candied cacao nibs. The satisfying crunch and perfect level of sweetness make for ideal snack or as a topping for ice cream, salads, roasted veggies, or really anything you can think of. As a customer said today when tasting “It’s the bacon of chocolate. I don’t really even like chocolate that much and I can’t stop eating these.”
I think we may have a problem on our hands.
Rogue Balao is back! This is another strong example of Rogue’s control and careful craftsmanship.
Limited availability as always…
