We opened our workshop out of a lifetime enjoyment of learning how things are made. For several years we experimented with roasting beans, using our chocolate in every recipe we could imagine, eating our way through chocolate shops in North America and visiting cacao farms in Ecuador.

When we found out that chocolate was grown in the tropics largely by rural, small multi-generational family farmers, our hearts were drawn to the common pride of growing something, by our common heritage of farming.

We were compelled to work with the farmer. So in 2014, we sold our small family farm with a desire to share this real craft chocolate with our family, friends, and community. The result: the best bean to bar chocolate Portland has to offer...and maybe the world!

We Believe in Creating:_

Real Chocolate

This is a handcrafted bar. We roast, crack, winnow, grind, conche, temper, mold, and package small batches of chocolate in our factory and tasting room. Our cacao beans are sourced directly from the farmer and crafted to bring out their interesting flavors.

Real Relationships

Direct relationships with the farmers who grow our ingredients, customers who become part of the Creo family and our community.

Real Change

We give back to our community to help make a difference in people’s lives.
