183 Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Makers In the United States

Carol Wiley

Bean-to-bar chocolate makers take cacao beans, make chocolate, and create the chocolate bars and products you and I know and love. That’s different from a chocolatier who takes already-made chocolate and turns it into delicious confections.

Here’s a list of bean-to-bar chocolate makers located in the United States. I visited the website of every company listed here and pulled some basic information. Some websites had more details than others; that’s why some of the descriptions are sparse. Many of the companies are small artisan and craft chocolate makers, but I also included some larger companies not necessarily considered artisan.

February 2019: An updated list is now available on Kindle as 209 U.S. Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Makers: A State-By-State Guide.
