Twenty-Four Blackbirds Chocolate

“What started in my kitchen with a pound of cocoa beans, a juicer, and a toaster oven, has now turned into a small-scale artisan chocolate company…”
– Mike Orlando, Founder of Twenty-Four Blackbirds

A small-batch chocolate company unlike any other. The team behind Twenty-Four Blackbirds is serious about chocolate making. They pride themselves on handcrafted confections made from the highest quality ingredients. With an in-house factory and tropical nursery, they are equipped to oversee the entire process from hand-sorting raw cocoa beans to developing delicate roast profiles. Mike Orlando, the company’s founder, is a jack-of-all-trades and his handiwork goes beyond the artisanal chocolates to include the incredible fixtures they are displayed on. Pop by the factory and store around the corner from us and a take a tour to see for yourself.
