Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates > Company > About Us
Living the Sweet Life
Founded in Wichita, Kansas in 2005, Cocoa Dolce quickly established a reputation for serving beautiful chocolates and confections. Today, under the ownership of the Voegeli family, Cocoa Dolce continues our innovative and creative approach to chocolate-making as a world-class chocolatier and sweet lounge. Our collaborative approach and taste for adventure shines through in our artisanal chocolates, pastries, macarons, and gelato, thoughtfully paired with espresso, wine and spirits. We’re driven by a genuine enjoyment of the art of chocolate-making, and a down-to-earth love of creating daily moments of joy.
Hand-Crafted, Artisan Chocolate
Great chocolate is a combination of high-quality ingredients and time; there are no shortcuts. Every piece of chocolate made at Cocoa Dolce is handcrafted from start to finish. In an age of automation and algorithms, we’re keeping the traditional ways of chocolate-making alive while always exploring the boundaries of our craft.
Chocolate brings together people across all walks of life, and from one corner of the globe to another. We sought and secured a fantastic Belgian chocolate to use in most of our creations, and farmers throughout the cocoa-growing world who are dedicated to practicing fairly-sourced, environmentally friendly farming techniques that result in economic empowerment in their communities.
The People Behind The Chocolate
Cocoa Dolce is a community of creative and passionate people who love making life a little sweeter. Our certified chocolatiers and pastry chefs work closely alongside each department to ensure everything from our chocolates to made-from-scratch pastries is made with a dedication to quality and a dash of playfulness. Our team, with decades of combined experience, has a culture of experimentation, passion and light-hearted fun.
The Chocolate Factory
Our location in the historic Coleman Factory building in downtown Wichita, Kansas, is the headquarters of everything Cocoa Dolce. Here, you’ll be treated to a delicious view of our state-of-the-art production kitchen from the comfort of our relaxing Sweet Lounge. From concept to creation, every one of our chocolates, confections and pastries makes its way through this kitchen. Enjoy a treat and watch the magic happen!
