Shipping Policy

·         Cocoa Ingredients: During the summer months we do use insulation totes or thermal protection liners to guarantee chocolate and heat sensitive items that are shipped don’t melt. For heat-sensitive products (i.e chocolate chips, cocoa butter), we may ship Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday only to ensure freshness of product.  We avoid the risk of our product sitting in the post office over the weekend, especially in the summertime.

o   Most of our orders are processed within 1-3 business days of the day of purchase.

o   We use United States Postal Service (2-4 days shipping Services)

o   Shipping may be delayed protecting your products. If necessary, we will hold your order in to avoid additional transit time over the weekend.

o   Please contact us with questions before your purchase to ensure satisfaction.
