We've mentioned here/there/everywhere: we're so excited to help launch the Made in DC Program! A partnership between local economy advocates Think Local First and the DC Department of Small and Local Business, it's in place to promote and support DC makers of A L L S T R I P E S (from food to furniture, and everything in between), and enrollment is OPEN and FREE for all DC biz creating a product in the city! The depth + breadth of the DC maker community is blowing our minds, daily.
We found ourselves at Union Kitchen: Ivy City a few weeks ago, and were glad to have camera in hand for a little walk-through of the Undone Chocolate space. One of the 40+ Made in DC-enrolled businesses so far, Undone is bean-to-bar in the truest sense of the word (a highlight of our visit: getting to taste the cacao beans at every. single. stage of becoming a chocolate bar), and all of their chocolate products – be it the aforementioned bars, drinking chocolate, and even an organic cocoa shell tea – are handcrafted from organic and direct trade cacao sourced from small producers.
