Episode 1: Todd Masonis of Dandelion Chocolate
The story of Dandelion Chocolate with co-founder Todd Masonis:
Todd Masonis is the co-founder and CEO of Dandelion Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolate factory located in San Francisco, CA.
Chocolate is one of my all-time favorite treats, but before conducting this interview (and tasting some of their chocolate) I really hadn’t understood the unique flavor different beans bring to a chocolate bar. Because Dandelion Chocolate is only made with cacao beans and organic cane sugar, the true chocolate flavors are the stars of the show. Due to this, the bars are incredibly delicious and completely different than any chocolate I’ve ever had before.
In the episode we discuss:
A typical workday at the Dandelion Chocolate cafe (aka Willy Wonka factory/candyland for grown ups)
Where and why Todd started making chocolate
How Dandelion sources their beans
