A Family Affair

Father and Son. Chocolatiers and Innovators.

Dedicated to the masterful art of chocolate making, we hand-craft confections that are distinctly superior in quality and taste. Two generations of culinary artists have traveled the world, mastering the craft of global cuisine to create the finest chocolate and gourmet fares. The Debbas family is committed to crafting products distinctly superior in quality, taste, and creativity, which is why we use only the finest cacao beans in our chocolates, roasted exactly to our specifications. After the roasting process, we conche our chocolate for over 100 hours in order to create a silky smooth couverture. We take pride in using premium ingredients and care in all of our products—from our family to yours.
