The B2B Market for . . . Chocolate!

Join us on Thursday, July 29th for the best kind of and enjoy a really Happy Hour at Chocolate Covered for a members-only discussion of B2B -- Bean-to-Bar -- chocolates where we will, of course, sample a wide variety of B2B chocolates!

Over the past few years, more and more high-end chocolate manufacturers have been introducing their own bean-to-bar chocolates -- they start with the cocoa bean and take it all the way to the finished product. (For a great explanation of the bean-to-bar process, click here.)

Join us after work on Thursday, July 29th in the heart of Noe Valley along with your fellow Wharton alumni for a special Wharton Club members-only Bean-to-Bar chocolate tasting! Our host and the owner of Chocolate Covered, Jack Epstein will lay out for us an a wide variety of samples that will include:

  • High cocoa content
  • Single origins
  • Exotic spices
  • High quality milk chocolate
  • Micro roasteries

At the same time, we'll also have the opportunity to try virtually any other chocolate in the shop . . . and Chocolate Covered has by far the largest selection of chocolates from all over the world that you will find anywhere in San Francisco. (Talk about being a kid in a candy shop!) So if there's something that catches our eye on the shelves, we'll be doing some tasting and exploring there, too.
