The term 'Nunu' is an affectionate nickname for little kids in Africa where I spent my childhood. My mother called me "Nunu" while I was growing up and I've since heard it used as a term of endearment in many different countries and cultures. Based now in Brooklyn, my husband Andy and I started Nunu Chocolates with the belief that the world is a better place when chocolate is involved.
Production happens right at our shop, where people can have a Frozen Hot Chocolate, latte, or glass of wine and watch us making chocolates. We use a single origin Cocoa bean derived from a Trintario and Criollo hybrid which we get from a sustainable and family run farm in eastern Colombia. We seek out the finest ingredients for our truffles and caramels, making Nunu Chocolates a totally natural and individually handmade treat.
