Spinnaker Chocolate first opened its doors in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood in the fall of 2021. Focusing on quality chocolate, from sourcing to production, Spinnaker Chocolate is on the way to becoming a household name. Owner Kelly Van Arsdale is living out his passion to create delicious, smooth and flavorful chocolate for all to enjoy.
Beginning at the sourcing stage, all cacao pods are brought in from different regions to provide a variety in Spinnaker Chocolate products. These locations include Belize, Uganda, Colombia and Trinidad, to name a few. Once the pods have arrived, Van Arsdale diligently sorts through them using machinery designed and created by himself and his brother. During the chocolate-making process, a key step truly sets the brand apart from other chocolate products: roasting the nibs instead of the whole cacao pod, ensuring maximum flavor while maintaining the natural state of cacao.
