Escazu is like Willy Wonka's for a grown-up palate. They directly source fine cacao from small farms, then roast and grind the beans on antique equipment. Visit Escazu to try their handcrafted bars, truffles, confections and more. All of their products are made and sold at their Raleigh workshop, with a continually evolving selection of truffles and confections. Escazu also offers caffeinated bevs (made with Counter Culture coffee), house made ice cream push-ups, and a variety of drinking chocolates, as well as locally made gifts.
Escazu is a Bean to Bar to Confections chocolate maker and chocolatier. Everything is done by hand, from the sorting to the ladling to the wrapping. They utilize Latin American cocoa beans and take a trip down to Costa Rica at least once a year to visit the farm. In addition to chocolates they offer a hot chocolate bar, featuring contemporary and historically inspired chocolate drinks.
