Immerse yourself in a world of artisanal chocolate

If you’re a chocolate fanatic with an hour to spare in San Francisco, Tcho might change your life.  At the very least, these high-tech chocolate artisans will give you delicious reasons to part with some cash. Take your taste buds for a wild ride on this factory’s twice-daily (and free!) tour, where you’ll have in-depth guided tastings of their distinctive, fairly sourced chocolate and see how it’s made from scratch (most U.S. chocolate companies simply melt chocolate made overseas). Slap on a hairnet, get a chocolate history lesson from employees obsessed with the entire bean-to-bar process, and see if you can leave without cleaning out the Tcho store.  We dare you to find a sweeter excuse to buy American.
