Here is the story, in Sarah’s own words, about how she became a dark chocolate lover and transitioned into a chocolate maker. “I have been a chocolate junkie for many years, but every time I tried dark chocolate I thought it tasted terrible. I wouldn’t touch the stuff. Well…unless there was no other option available and I HAD to have some chocolate. I would go to the “dark side”, but I didn’t really like it. Then came the DARK CHOCOLATE AWAKENING. My brother Mark (Captain Mark) was making his own chocolate and brought some to Wisconsin when he visited. Of course, I didn’t want to hurt his feelings and not eat any of his chocolate, so I HAD to try some. It blew me away how delicious it was. I actually LIKED how it tasted. I would take a bite and let it melt on my tongue and just enjoy all the different flavors. I especially liked the after taste, which to me tasted like raisins, or some kind of sweet fruit. At that point, I became a devotee of Costa Rican dark chocolate. Well, more specifically Captain Mark’s chocolate. Several years ago, Mark began talking about starting a chocolate company. I was all in! Starting a company whose true purpose is to help others fits perfectly with my philosophy of passing forward the blessings I have been given. Being able to use my organizational and humanitarian skills to further Captain’s Chocolate gives me great personal satisfaction. Since the start of Captain’s Chocolate I have become a true chocolate maker. I can now make chocolate that is absolutely the best. I truly hope every bite you take will be a blessing to your taste buds and your health.”
