East Bay bean-to-bar chocolate maker, Bisou Chocolate, was started in 2006 in Berkeley. Currently they are headquartered in Oakland.

Bisou Wrapper
Bisou’s wrappers aren’t just pretty. They are educational too. That’s a cacao flower in that Art Nouveau-esque design.

Bisou makes single-origin bars from locations across the equator in cacao strengths from 50% (mixed with organic coconut) to 100% (ground nibs only). Their ingredient lists are small, and they don’t use dairy or soy products in their chocolate.

They have expanded their line to include vegan truffles, caramels, and dragées all made with their chocolate. They also offer drinking chocolate in different cacao percentages, and chocolate dipped fruit. Some of their chocolate is vegan, including a white chocolate bar.

You can find their bars and other confections online, and at some retail stores and farmers markets. Check their website for locations. They also offer curbside pickup their West Oakland workshop.
