Designed by {cocoa} | Country: United States

“{cocoa}, the San Francisco based boutique chocolate company announces today the release of its debut chocolate collection entitled absolute. Born to innovator and purest Jewel Zimmer, she defines herself with a botanical edge in todayʼs chocolate world, honoring cocoa as an object of beauty.

An inquisitive, she is continuously inspired by the “blurring of boundaries” between beauty, health and food. By adding cocoa extract to rare, single origin chocolate, she brings forth their symbiotic relationship allowing cocoa to reclaim its botanical purpose.

This concentrated extraction from the cocoa bean intensifies the important nutritive, physiological and polyphenol antioxidant effects that naturally occur. By adding this to all of her chocolate, she is able to keep the integrity of these properties that can often be compromised and or modified during the manufacturing process of chocolate.

Jewel Zimmer selects her single origin chocolate from artisan chocolate makers all over the world and uses only current cocoa bean vintages to insure the freshest and vibrant product possible.  Going beyond sustainable, fair trade and organic, she collaborates with small chocolate producers that source “cult” or rare and even wild beans, giving her an opportunity to create something exclusive and unique. Using specific blending techniques she is able to intensify each chocolates distinctive flavors creating refined and perfumed chocolate like no other.

Cocoa has defined itself timelessly through ancient and modern civilizations across the world in the form of chocolate. Nobility and famous artists alike have praised the medicinal, stimulating and seductive benefits cocoa has offered for over 4000 years. It is believed Casanova gave up champagne for cocoa as he found it more effective in seducing the ladies.

These individual chocolates are perfectly tempered into thin squares with curved edges, exposing a now signature art deco motif on their smooth flat surface. The collection resembles perfectly, polished paves, delicate in size and precise in shape. Packaged in a sleek and sexy locally made black box, that has a reflective and clean visual on the inside with defined graphics, representing boutique luxury on the outside. Vinyl is used to separate 4 layers of 8 delicate squares totaling 32 individual pieces, which explains the abbreviation IND/32 on the box. The logos brackets directly symbolize cocoa as an {object of beauty} while absolute represents all that embodies it.”
