De­voted en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Vicki Bain’s Cho­coloza beck­ons you from out­side with a cocoa-scented trail and ca­sual café scene. It’s here that Bain’s all­women team crafts the brand’s fa­mous range of ar­ti­sanal choco­lates. Tak­ing the best of Bel­gium and part­ner­ing it with the best of Africa, Bain uses only Bel­gian choco­late with no ar­ti­fi­cial ad­di­tives, and in­cor­po­rates lo­cally, sus­tain­ably farmed in­gre­di­ents like granadilla, ma­cadamia nuts, ber­ries and cof­fee from 44 Stan­ley’s Bean There roast­ery. It’s not sur­pris­ing to learn that Bain lived in Bel­gium for over a decade, qual­i­fy­ing as a choco­latier un­der the guid­ance of the world’s fore­most choco­late ar­ti­sans.
