David Briggs is the nationally and internationally renowned owner and chocolatier behind Xocolatl de David. David started Xocolatl de Davíd informally, and unintentionally, in 2005 while just “playing around with chocolate.” Over the next four years he honed his skills in chocolate and confections pairing savory and sweet elements with the varying flavor profiles of the chocolates he sources from South and Central America. His single origin chocolate comes from sustainable and fair trade sources and Briggs prefers to use only bittersweet varieties no lower than 68%. Briggs works with local farmers as well as specialty producers from around the world to attain the highest quality ingredients for each product he creates.
