Coracao Confections

Wow what a ride it has been the last few months! Thank you for choosing to pick up Coracao chocolates online, for coming out to the Farmer’s Markets, for spreading the word about Coracao on your social networks and for all the positive ideas & words you've shared with us. I feel so blessed and grateful for all the love and support Coracao has received. 

After I sent out the last blog post I got an unexpected call from OBDC small business finance in Oakland. They gave Coracao a loan back in 2008 to help purchase our enrobing machine (which is basically an automatic truffle dipper). They called & wanted to support and are giving Coracao a loan! So rare for a lender or bank to help a business out when they need it most. What an amazing organization that really cares. They support many businesses around the bay, if you're looking for funding for your own business or know someone who is, they are a wonderful organization to reach out to. 

Coracao is here to stay! We'll be bringing you even more delicious & nutritious creations to nourish your body & delight your taste buds. 

Cooking, creating and sharing delicious food is my true love & my art. It's been almost four and a half years, but I'm back in the kitchen creating new flavors & items for you. I'm having a blast and am inspired & grateful to be able to continue serving you. Keep your eye out and your taste buds ready for some really fun, new items that will be debuting in the coming months... 

With love,
