Compartés Handmade in LA since 1950
Compartés is the nation’s hippest and most trendsetting chocolate shop. Founded in 1950 and recently reinvigorated by chocolate prodigy Jonathan Grahm, Compartés gourmet chocolates are made from scratch by hand every day by a small team of chocolatiers and chocolate artists, using fresh natural ingredients from local farmer’s markets, in their Los Angeles chocolate kitchens and shop. Known for fusing chocolate with art, style, design and fashion, Compartés is a unique chocolate brand unlike any other, creating chocolates that are just as delicious as the stunning visuals they are wrapped up in.
Releasing new chocolates seasonally in the vein of the greatest fashion houses, with boutiques in Brentwood and Melrose Place, Compartés has given new meaning to the phrase “haut chocolat”. Internationally renowned as one of the best tasting chocolate companies, sourcing the world’s best cocoa and ingredients, their new vibrant line of chocolate bars have since garnered awards and accolades for being the most beautiful and distinct packaging on any food worldwide.
Compartes Chocolatier uses only the world's best chocolate, soured from South America combined with the freshest locally sourced ingredients including California farmers market fruits and spices or nuts that we roast in our own kitchen. Each of their handcrafted chocolate confections is guaranteed to please the palate of the most discriminating chocolate connoisseur. The philosophy is simple: delicious artisan chocolate confections, chocolate truffles and gourmet chocolate bars are handmade using the fresh and most delicious ingredients.
