International award winning micro-batch chocolatier founded by lawyer-turned-chocolatier, Syovata Edari. Winner of 30 Academy of Chocolate Awards, CocoVaa creates unique fine chocolates using mindfully sourced ingredients that honor the world’s diverse cultures. Serving a diverse global community, CocoVaa is committed to “decolonizing” spaces of joy, using fine chocolate and creative desserts as the medium. As part of its mission to contribute to the global community in a positive way, CocoVaa is committed to growing its “raise trade” model for its sourcing protocol, by working with suppliers of fine couverture who are based in the countries of origin and where the means of production are owned by the people of that origin.
