    Chocolate Maker and Chocolatier

    From farmer to botanist to brewer to baker to chocolate maker, Chef Aaron Barthel's life has been an exploration of fine and simple things.  Starting as a confectioner of ganache for 12 years, he's expanded his passion to now focusing on small batches of craft chocolate from a roasted nib, developing the chocolate's flavor and texture in the mill. This gives him much more control over the tempered chocolate flavor experience.



    At Intrigue we celebrate discovery and encourage the habit of exploration, enrichment, and enjoyment. We want you to feel nurtured, edified, and inspired to share your experiences with others. We hope to provide this to you through tasting experiences you can gift and share with coworkers, friends, and family.

    Over the years we have expanded our passions from solely confection making to include craft chocolate making from a roasted nib. You can see this reflected in our evolution of products.
