Poco Dolce Confections was started by Kathy Wiley in 2002. That was the year she discovered a passion for creating hand-made chocolates with unique and exciting flavors. Having a focus on savory foods, Kathy experimented by finishing a piece of bittersweet chocolate with a sprinkling of Grey Sea Salt. Poco Dolce's Bittersweet Chocolate Tiles were born.
The name - Poco Dolce - literally translates from Italian as "not too sweet" or "just a little sweet." Applying this idea to their products, Poco Dolce's ongoing mission is to stay on the "savory side of sweet."
SIMPLE, FRESH, ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS
After 20 years in their San Francisco kitchen, it was time to head north to Healdsburg. It will stay run by a small team with the utmost attention and care put into crafting each and every product. Poco Dolce's chocolates and confections will continue to feature only the finest, all-natural ingredients.
ENVIRONMENTALLY AND SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS CHOCOLATE
Poco Dolce always uses blends of GMO-Free chocolate from Guittard Chocolate Company. Located just 15 miles south of San Francisco in Burlingame, California, Guittard makes it a point to work directly with their farmers, using cacao beans that are Rainforest Alliance certified and Fair Trade certified.
