Most memorable chocolate experience:
My first fine chocolate was Amedei's Chuao. My wife surprised me with tickets to the Utah Chocolate Expo, and I stumbled first across probably the finest fine chocolate collection in the country.

Then I had a pumpkin Chocolatier Blue filled chocolate with an Amedei Toscano Black shell. I became terminal at that point.
My favorite chocolate is:
If I had to pick one, it would probably be the 9.

Hi Brian,

 

I'm the North American importer for Coppeneur. Our web site is www.coppeneurchocolate.com. There, you can find a link that lists our U.S. wholesale customers and a link to "About Us".

 

We opened the first North American Coppeneur store recently in Calgary, Alberta. The only Coppeneur store in Europe is located in Bonn, Germany.

 

Thank you for your interest.

I'm sad to be missing Monday's Madagascar tasting. Maybe we need to conduct a re-hash :)

Put a picture of yourself and you may get featured. In fact, I would suggest it to Clay.

Thanks,
Matt
