Zak's Chocolate

Zak's Chocolate is a local, award-winning, small-batch craft chocolate maker (we make 100% of our own chocolate from cocoa beans) and an artisan chocolatier. We love chocolate and the story & amazing flavors of fine cacao varieties. We have been making chocolate as a hobby for years and are excited to share our passion with you.


At Zak's we roast cocoa beans ethically sourced from different regions and make our own single origin and house blend chocolate to use in bars, truffles and other yummy confections.  Everything is done by hand, from sorting cocoa beans to wrapping our bars.


Like coffee and wine, each cocoa bean comes from a unique terroir that impacts its flavor. At our factory in Scottsdale you can see (and learn) how chocolate is made from the bean. 


We hope to see you soon for a unique chocolate experience!
