Sam Ratto
Co-CEO; Chocolate Maker

From the moment Sam sunk his hands into his first bag of cocoa beans, he knew he was destined to make chocolate. Born and raised in California with farmer Grandparents on both sides of the family, approaches the agricultural side of chocolate making with integrity and passion. Sam has spent the last four years studying everything he can about his personal liquid gold, and plans to keep learning every day. When he is not dreaming of roast profiles and winnowed cocoa beans, he’s playing ball with his son Salem, or riding his bike through the trees in Raleigh.
