Based in Orem, Utah, Amano are pioneers of the bean-to-bar movement in the United States.
"Chocolate is our love and our passion. Located high in Utah’s Wasatch Mountain range in the heart of the Rockies, Amano is dedicated to creating some of the world’s most exquisite chocolate through traditional techniques. Amano means “by hand” and “they love” in Italian, and that describes the care and perfection that Amano brings to chocolate and in turn to the people who savor it.
Through working with small, carefully controlled batches and lots of love and attention, we seek not to be the largest chocolate company, simply to make the very best chocolate humanly — or heavenly — possible.
We source only the world’s very best beans and ingredients. We visit the plantations, buy from the growers, and when necessary work with them to improve their skill in properly growing, fermenting and drying the cacao beans to meet our exacting standards."
