The purpose of this showroom is to direct you towards amazing cacao and chocolate related products and services that exist around the world.
Chocolate With Geoseph Products
Available At Pacific Arts Market in Vancouver
CWG In Collaboration with Dirtspindle
+ Chocolate Lanterns
Emma at Dirtspindle designs incredible pottery inspired by the human body. It only made sense to design a chocolate melting lantern with her, since enjoying fine chocolate emphasises using our body and our senses, not just chomping it down.
These lanterns are about 4" tall, and are perfect for one or two people to enjoy your bean to bar in liquid form!
They are available at Pacific Arts Market at Granville and Broadway in Vancouver along with my curated selection of bean to bar chocolate.

+ Hand Carved Cacao Pods
Beltran cacao maker carves out beautiful life-like cacao pods from apamate wood in his native Venezuela. They are a very realistic representation a fresh cacao pod, and make perfect gifts for cacao lovers or as props for displays and education purposes.

+ Cacao Fruit Juice
Repurposed Pod offers you 100% fresh cold-pressed cacao juice. This is the essence of the fruit of the cacao pod. For thousands of years before chocolate was invented in South America, humans were consuming the fruit of the cacao.
Because the fruit is difficult to obtain outside of where it is grown, this cacao juice is the next best thing to opening up a fresh pod on a farm in beautiful Ecuador. The flavour is sweet, tart, floral, and with notes of tropical fruit. Click the image to locate a retailer near you.
