ChocoSol Traders is about “community, social enterprise, and traditional methods.”
On Wednesday we were invited to spend the day wrapping chocolates at and learning about the sustainable and slow philosophy.
The proprietor Michael first learned about the qualities of various native cacao beans and traditional processes of grinding and preparation while in Mexico. ChocoSol uses those same methods, including stone-grinding its fair trade beans and also harnessing pedal-power.
ChocoSol’s chocolate bars and hot chocolate are available to purchase direct from their kitchen, from local farmer’s markets and on Dec 8-11th at our L O C O for L O C A L (holiday pop up shop) at Naco Gallery.
The team at ChocoSol tries to be as environmentally friendly as possible, all of their packaging is 100% biodegradable and they are striving to create the greenest kitchen in the city. They are attempting to create a zero-waste kitchen which also produces other products such as tortillas and other baked goods.
