Creo Chocolate is the passion of Tim, Janet and Kevin Straub. Creo Chocolate is a small batch bean to bar chocolate factory and tasting room in the Lloyd district of Portland, Oregon. The Straubs opened their chocolate workshop based on a lifetime enjoyment of learning how things are made. For several years they experimented with roasting beans and then using the chocolate in every recipe they could imagine all the while eating their way through chocolate shops in North America and visiting cacao farms in Ecuador. In their facility, the Straubs roast, crack, winnow, grind, couch and temper small batches of cacao beans and then mold and package each bar by hand. Their beans are sourced directly from the farmers and crafted to bring out the unique flavors of the bean. Creo’s bars include whiskey milk, dark milk with fleur de sel, dark orange, nibs and sea salt and dark toasted coconut. They also offer truffles, malt balls, sipping chocolate and roasted cacao beans.
