Q&A with the Operations Manager
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
We offer a variety of fine flavored cacao bean hot chocolate and sipping chocolate, the later really highlighting the uniqueness of each bean origin. We have a fabulous selection of locally baked goods that vary from gluten free to vegan and even have homemade marshmallows. If you aren't in the mood for something rich we have a light brewed cacao as well as a cacao fruit smoothie.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We are the first and only sipping chocolate house in Santa Cruz.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Adam Armstrong is the founder of Mutari and was motivated by his time in the Peace Corps in Panama by their use of the cacao bean. He helped set up a profitable business there based on creating chocolate and came back to the states to refine the process and create an amazing hot chocolate product like no other.
