French Broad Chocolates Go From Bean to Bar
At French Broad Chocolates in Asheville, owners Dan and Jael Rattigan are committed to making delectable chocolate treats from bean to bar.
After spending time in Costa Rica learning about cacao and how to make chocolate, they relocated to Asheville and opened French Broad Chocolates. They started out of their home kitchen, selling online and at local farmers markets before eventually opening the French Broad Chocolate Factory & Tasting Room, where they handle every step of the process from roasting to wrapping. They also still own a cacao farm in Costa Rica.
French Broad offers sweet truffles, chocolate bars, brownies, chocolate drops and more, including a collection of truffles featuring ingredients grown and produced in the region. Learn more about how to order at frenchbroadchocolates.com.
