I am the owner and chocolate maker of Raphio Chocolate, a company in Fresno California, that makes chocolate from scratch - from cocoa beans. My chocolate bars have won several prestigious national and international awards. They are pure and real chocolate made without food additives, fillers or preservatives. It is the chocolate that I feel comfortable feeding to my own children., hence the company name Raphio Chocolate, which is the combination of my sons' name, Raphael and Rio.

Where you'll be

We will visit every part of the chocolate factory all the way from the very back where we sort the beans and roast them. The "hot room" is where you will see where the magic happens, where the big stone grinders turn the cocoa beans into chocolate. The "cold room" is next where you will see the chocolate is tempered and molded into chocolate bars. Lastly, we will go back to the shop to taste all the single origin and flavored chocolate.
