Camino Verde is a privately owned fermentary located in Duran, just minutes outside Guayaquil, Ecuador. Owner Vicente Norero sources the organic beans on a nearby 381-hectare cocoa estate which he previously owned and managed. He puts his background in microbiology to use with his innovative approach to fermentation, using enzymes and inoculants to achieve unique and exceptional flavors in his beans.
The moment you tear open the bag, you’ll inhale the deep floral aroma of this bar. The texture is fudgy and rich, giving way to deep, earthy flavors like roasted nuts and a lingering, malty finish.

Crow & Moss
Like many businesses do, Crow & Moss began in a basement.
One day, driving home from work, owner Mike Davies was overcome by the desire to learn how to make craft chocolate. It was a sudden and all encompassing feeling, a life changing moment -- and one he knew he couldn't ignore. Over the next few months, he put together his initial set up (a small coffee roaster, a Champion juicer for cracking and pre-refining, a Diamond melanger, a small tempering machine and a neon pink hair dryer for winnowing that he stole from his wife) and got to work. It was a rabbit hole he never crawled back out of (his wife has since had to get a new hair dryer).
Now, Crow & Moss is making artisan chocolate in one hundred pound batches in our 2000 square foot factory in Petoskey, trying to bring out unique and true-to-bean flavor experiences to share with chocolate lovers through the midwest.
