The Gist


Chocolate Maker

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.  He handcrafts small batches of craft chocolate with care to coax the chocoalte into telling its own story.



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 in our retail stores, and tasting experiences you can gift and share with coworkers, friends, and family.
