Kimberly Allen Hack is finally putting her money where her mouth is. A lifelong chocolate fanatic, Kim has been dreaming about opening Cocoa + Co. for more than a decade. It took that long for the planets to align (and her risk-averse husband to accept the inevitable).
The concept for Cocoa + Co. was born on a business trip to Europe in 2001 when Kim was in the wine industry. While working with icons like Michel Chapoutier and Angelo Gaja, Kim soaked up the importance of place, varietal and craftsmanship (along with a fair amount of good wine), and quickly recognized the similarities with chocolate. The small-batch bean-to-bar movement was just getting underway here and abroad. But there was no one pulling all those delectable treats and talented artisans together. There was nothing like a wine shop for chocolate, with curated depth and breadth. No place where chocolate lovers could fuel their passion through exploration, tasting and interaction with others similarly obsessed. As a marketer and entrepreneur, Kim couldn’t resist such a delicious unmet need.

    This was such a fun class! The chocolate was incredible and learning more about the history of chocolate and romance was just as sweet. I enjoyed the small setting and my partner enjoyed eating all the chocolate.

    We had such a great time. Learned a lot more than we thought we would and the chocolate was super tasty too.

    Cocoa and co is such a cute shop! The owner leads a fun tasting and gave really interesting backgrounds on the chocolates! She knows what she is talking about! Everything was delicious!

    The Romance of Chocolate tasting/class was a great activity for Valentine's day! Kim was incredibly knowledgable and I learned a lot about where chocolate comes from and where it is made. The chocolate was delicious and it was cool to see her selection from all around the world. I'd love to do another class there - and bring home more chocolate!
