Nuance Chocolate is one of the only chocolate shops in the country to make its own chocolate, and offers the widest range of single origin chocolates in the world. Let’s dip into the factory making process of Nuance- from bean to bar.

Q&A with Toby Gadd

I sat down with Toby Gadd, co-owner and founder of Nuance Chocolate, a store in Old Town Fort Collins that provides a unique method of making and selling its chocolate locally. Self-classified as a “chocoholic”, Gadd told me about finding and perfecting his passion for making various chocolate types with beans sourced from around the world.

Flight Tasting with Kristin Mastre

I had the opportunity to sit down with Kristin Mastre, a foodcritic from Feasting Fort Collins, to taste a flight of single-origin chocolates from Nuance Chocolate in Old Town Fort Collins. Co-owner and co-founder Toby Gadd guided us along as we tasted and gave our opinions on five different chocolates.
