Chocolate is about chasing the moments that last a lifetime.
We're continually amazed that the seed of a fruit, growing in the tropics halfway 'round the world, has the potential to stop you in your tracks through the pure shock of a flavor you can’t quite put your finger on, or whisk you away—if only for a moment—to a place and time that you haven’t remembered in years.
Those moments happen to us all. Like the first time you had your grandma's famous cookies, or that time you ate a Sour Patch Kid and your face turned from puckery-disgust to a smile of sweet content. Those moments remind us of something special, exciting, nostalgic, and comforting.
We love chasing those moments and sharing them with others. In our past lives, we did this through playing shows as professional musicians, roasting coffee for world-famous brands, and pouring wine at award-winning restaurants. In 2007, on the streets of Baltimore*, our founder, RC, tasted a chocolate bar that stopped him in his tracks, and he realized he could have that same experience with chocolate that he had discovered in coffee back in the '90's. So, in 2017, we dropped everything and jumped headfirst into helping make those moments with chocolate happen for others.
At Seahorse, we're on a mission to find the tastiest cocoa in the world and share it with you. We’re not here to tell you what you're about to taste, or who to enjoy it with, but we'd be lying if we didn't hope you had an experience that will last a lifetime.
