Dandelion Chocolate is a bean-to-bar chocolate factory in the Mission District of San Francisco. In our factory, we roast, crack, sort, winnow, grind, conch, and temper small batches of beans and then mold and package each bar by hand. By sourcing high-quality beans and carefully crafting tiny batches, we try to bring out the individual flavors and nuances of each bean.
