Our beans are so fresh… You'll want to slap them!

Appalachian Chocolate Co.

Exquisite chocolate made from only the highest-quality ingredients.

Appalachian Chocolate Company was founded in August 2015 as a small, one-man shop producing about 10 bars a week. The chocolate was made from “Nacional” beans grown in the Arriba zone of Ecuador. This area of Ecuador is known for producing a very special, fragrant profile. Slowly, selecting the best beans, a few other regions were added to the selection, while keeping each bar single origin. The beans are Rainforest Alliance certified and fairly traded. The carefully selected beans are roasted, ground, and poured with love to become the smoothest, most delectable chocolates. Appalachian Chocolate Company quickly grew into a local business, producing a variety of products ranging from classic dark and milk chocolate to local coffee-infused bars.

In September 2020 the original founder, Jack, sold the company, along with all of his wonderful chocolate secrets, to The Black Dog Coffee Company. We have since added the chocolate roastery to our coffee roastery and have the most dedicated staff continuing to roast and carefully produce chocolates in small batches to ensure the best possible quality.
