Aloha chocolate lovers!  

Welcome to the Art of Chocolate/Cacao Santa Fe!

We are New Mexico's first and Santa Fe's only authentic NM Certified True Bean- to -Bar chocolate maker. Small batch means big flavor!

Owners Derek Lanter and Melanie Boudar have been making chocolate and growing cacao in Hawaii since 2007. We moved to Santa Fe in 2016. 

We source organic cacao beans direct from small farms and cooperatives in Latin America and Hawaii whose post harvest practices meet our high quality standards. We work with only the best fine flavor beans from sources we know reinvest in their community and people . 

We make a variety chocolates that go into our bars, chocolate drinking elixirs, baked goods and award winning truffles.
