Bar & Cocoa is newly open, but it’s far from brand new.
The company three years ago launched a marketplace for artisan chocolate bars and confections, showcasing producers who buy their beans directly from growers. But customers had to either place online orders or sign up for a subscription service to access Bar & Cocoa’s inventory.
Now, though, co-founders Pashmina Lalchandani and Chris Lacey have opened a retail location, complete with tasting room. Dozens of chocolate brands that meet Bar & Cocoa’s ethical standards for sustainable and non-exploitative agricultural practices will be available for purchase.
Located at 1450 North Point Lane, Bar & Cocoa is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and by appointment. For more information, call 843-258-9013 or visit barandcocoa.com.
