Founded in 2016 by husband-and-wife pioneering farm-to-table chefs Jeff and Susan Mall, Volo Chocolate makes Mexican style, flavored bean-to-bar chocolate, in Windsor, CA.
Their chocolate is less sweet, but generally saltier than other chocolate makers’ bars. All of their bars contain sea salt and cinnamon, and their beans are roasted darker than most other makers’ bars.
As chefs, they also market their single origin chocolate as large, 1-lb. wheels for chefs and home cooks to use in the kitchen.
With their beautiful wrappers of quilt art by Katherine Shannahan, Volo bars would make a good gift for knowledgeable chocolate enthusiasts who might not have tried flavored single-origins before.
