This Valentine’s Day, get your loved one’s attention with chocolate from Georgia!
Cacao Atlanta Chocolate Co., Atlanta
Nationally known for their creation of exquisite origin-driven chocolate and confections, Cacao Atlanta partners with scientists and local growers to achieve extraordinary quality and upholds hand production methods throughout the entire chocolate-making process. With several locations to choose from, you can enjoy your treats to go or relax and enjoy them at the Cacao Café.
ChocoLaté Coffee, Decatur
Looking for your chocolate fix in liquid form? This independently owned and operated coffee and dessert shop is for you! They expertly roast their beans on site, giving each cup of specialty chocolate drinks a robust, but smooth, finish. Free Wi-Fi, leather chairs, comfy couches and a LONG list of drinks, homemade desserts and pastries is a welcoming change from the usual grab-and-go coffee chains.
Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate. Atlanta
Their small batch chocolate is made from cacao that is sustainably and ethically grown. Once imported to their Atlanta store, it is turned into beautiful chocolate liquor. Using only two ingredients — cacao and organic cane sugar — what you’re left with is the true flavor of the chocolate from the different regions. By sticking with just those two ingredients, the end result is delicious, vegan, soy AND gluten free.
Maison Robert Chocolates, Atlanta
As a third generation pâtissier-confiseur-glacier, Robert Reeb opened Maison Robert in Georgia in 1977. They have the reputation of using only the finest ingredients available, and all of their chocolates are still made by hand. You can choose to enjoy your confections there, have them beautifully packed to go, and even make your own in one of their custom classes!
diAmano Chocolate, Atlanta
Say, “I Love You,” and then eat it! This family-owned business specializes in 1,000+ different shapes, edible logos and pictures, and custom messages ALL written in chocolate. They also offer flavors and combinations — several of which change throughout the year — and the option of custom flavors. So, come in (or order online) and make your Valentine Day’s message extra sweet!
