Meet the Artisan – Maverick Chocolate

Maverick Chocolate is a family owned and operated bean-to-bar craft chocolate company.

Owner, Paul, traveled around the world as an engineer for many years; always returning home to his wife Marlene with new and interesting chocolate. The more chocolate they tried, the more interested they became in how chocolate was grown and made.

When Paul’s travel stopped early 2013, Marlene and Paul soon finished their supply of chocolate. They were sitting at the kitchen island when the idea struck–’let’s make our own world-class chocolate right here in Cincinnati.’

After transforming their kitchen into a chocolate factory, they invited their friends over for a number of chocolate tastings.

Everyone was impressed and the demand for their chocolate grew.

Now they are the proud owners of Maverick Chocolate Company. Using only ethically sourced cacao beans, they hand craft their chocolate in small batches from bean to the finished bar. Customers are encouraged to watch and smell the chocolate being made and to taste the final products.

You can find several of Maverick’s chocolate bar flavors, which may vary seasonally, at We Olive Cincy!
