Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives Served Daily


The J in JCoCo stands for Jean Thompson, owner and culinary envelope-pusher who creates chic yet unpretentious chocolate bars. Jean and her team in Seattle source fine chocolates from Belgium and Vanuatu, then throw in interesting combinations of flavors that complement the chocolate’s natural elegance without overwhelming it.

JCoCo partners with organizations like Northwest Harvest, Hopelink, the Food Bank of New York and SF-Marin Food Bank to turn each chocolate purchase into a fresh, healthy meal for someone who would otherwise go without.
