Casa Chocolates started in our home kitchen in 2014 out of a love for fine chocolate. As we perfected and advanced our process in the pursuit of exciting new flavors, we’ve grown from that kitchen to our new store and factory. We’re excited to be able to welcome you into our shop and share our love of chocolate with you!
We’re a family-run business that’s proud to be part of the San Antonio culinary community.
Buying and Selecting our Beans
We carefully select origin-sourced beans from Vietnam, Uganda, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic
and other regions from small farmers who practice organic growing principles.
It’s important to us that we support the small farmers of these regions and only purchase Fair Trade beans.
Turning Cacao into Chocolate
We roast all our beans in-house to bring out the specific flavors that make these beans unique. Once roasted, the process is simple:
1. The roasted beans are cracked to expose the inner cacao nibs, and the shells are removed.
2. The nibs are ground for over 24 to 72 hours, and organic sugar is added to balance the bitterness of the raw chocolate.
3. To ensure a bar that’s shiny and snaps when you break it, the chocolate is melted to a specific temperature in a process called tempering.
4. See? Simple.
Come say hello!
While we’re busy making chocolate most days of the week, our retail business is open on Saturdays and Sundays for samples, tours, and sales. That said, if you see us in the store, come say hello!
The 2020 Selection
This year, we’re making both Dark and Milk Chocolate bars.
Each of these are available with Texas Pecans, Peppermint, or Cayenne.
We’re proud to introduce our Mexican Hot Chocolate bar, made with milk chocolate, cinnamon, and a touch of cayenne.
