Flavor Brainstorm: Make It Rain

 Sometimes early morning R&D ingredient questing gets funny looks at the checkout stand.

We draw on our experiences and taste memories from all over the world. Our chocolatier, Melissa Santos, has lived in the Pacific Northwest, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, and northern California. These places come through in flavors like St. George Terroir Gin and Thai tea, but she also draws on a wealth of experiences that are not bound by geographical origin. Themes arise like Nuts & Seeds, Cocktail Hour, and Summer Sessions, but we like to let the flavors develop without being beholden to anything and allow box sets coalesce over time.

We also like talking to people about flavors they love and memories that are tied to them. We don't drink a lot of mojitos, but found that people that eat our chocolates like them and associate the refreshing beverage with summer time. They spoke, we listened, and Mojito founds its way into our Summer Sessions set.
