Hello, Mark and thank you for your quick reply. Neck deep in chocolate, how sad for you!
I will tell you that I am just embarking on the study of artisan chocolate making and as much as I would truly love to place an order with you immediately -- alas I am not able to. I am currently researching suppliers of product and your name came up quite a bit as the go-to guy.
I am still in quite a learning curve about product but I love Valrhona and would be interested in working with it once I get more into production. I cannot honestly tell you which flavoring I am interested in. Would you be willing to provide me a list of what you offer by Valrhona and an idea of pricing and availability. I live in lovely, humid Florida and although Salt Lake is not so close I would like to establish a relationship with a supplier I can depend on and work with. I am hoping this would work for you, too.
Thank you sincerely for taking the time to educate a newbie -- and you are ever in the Orlando area - let me know - I can steer you to the best restaurants (unfortunately you won't find much quality chocolate in our little metropolis ;( )
Take care and thank you again!

Hi Matt,

I'm just now replying to your comment about my chocolate reviews at Choco Files. No, I haven't tasted Domori's Javablond. I assume that you like it. To be honest, other than their porcelana all the other Domori that I've tried has been of below average enjoyment at a high price. Because of that I'm not a very big Domori fan, but I'll try the Javablond because I respect your recommendation of it.

Do you ship chocolate to other parts of the U.S.?

Hi Matt,

Thanks for posting the article on how you are cultivating a population of fine chocolate lovers. I was told that you might be carrying chocolate from artisan du chocolat. What variety are you carrying? I am in L.A. I would love to get some chocolate from you if the shipping is not too expensive. Are you carrying Hotel Chocolat's Haicenda Iara 90% and Domori's Guasare. Both seem very interesting. Thanks. Hope to chat more on Chocolate tasting...

Hi Matt,
To discuss the possibilities of carrying Sacred Chocolate, please contact Mike Zwiebach at 415-456-3311 x 118 M-F from 10am to 4pm PST. Or, you may email him directly at MikeZ@SacredChocolate.com
Thanks!
Steve

Okay, Matt, I am going to try the ones you have suggested. However, I might have some trouble finding them here in Fort Worth. Godiva is about as exotic as it gets here in Cowtown. I will do my very best to search out your selection. If anyone in this area knows where the good stuff is hiding, let me know. Matt, I shall get back to you after I reward myself with your suggestions.

Hi Matt,

We have some info about our company up on our site (http://mindochocolate.com), but we are working on a new site and should have it up this week. We are just finishing fine tuning it. We only sell wholesale in the U.S., but In Mindo, Ecuador we have a restaurant and we sell chocolate there retail. We don't have a shopping cart to purchase online yet but if you email me I can ship chocolate. I am mostly focusing on local businesses so far as we are just getting started. We got our license in November, 2009.

Mindo Chocolate Makers is the name of my chocolate business in Dexter, Michigan. Mindo is the name of the town in Ecuador where we ferment, dry and roast the beans before shipping them (to ourselves) in Michigan.
