Frequently Asked Questions about us and our chocolates

At Garcia Nevett Chocolatier de Miami we are focused on being open about our small business practices, so we have made a list of questions that come up often whether at the store, at events or online. We hope this is helpful!

Where is your chocolate from?

We mostly use chocolate made entirely in Venezuela from Venezuelan cacao. We also use some Peruvian, Ecuadorian and French chocolate. Learn about chocolate in one of our classes.

Do you make your own chocolate?

We are not bean-to-bar chocolate makers, but rather fine chocolatiers. As chocolatiers, we source the best premium chocolate available usually made with fine quality and rare cacaos.

Are your chocolates gluten-free?

Most of our dark chocolate products are gluten-free. Most fine dark chocolate is naturally gluten-free. Ask in store for more details about specific products.

Are your chocolates vegan?

Some of the chocolate we use for our confections is vegan, however we use dairy in most of our bonbons.

Do you have any sugar-free chocolate?

Unfortunately no. 

Where did you learn about chocolate?

Susana and Isabel, our master chocolatiers, have trained in Paris, Chicago and online. They are also active members of the Fine Chocolate Industry Association. Susana is a certified chocolate taster from the International Chocolate and Cacao Tasting Institute. Read about our award-winning chocolates here.

How long have you been in business?

Susana and Isabel have been in the chocolate business for over a decade, first in Venezuela and then in Miami. They started Cacao Art in Miami in 2012 and opened Garcia Nevett Chocolatier de Miami in 2018. This year we were named Best Chocolate Shop in Miami by the Miami New Times.

Why only next day shipping?

Because Miami is hot and chocolate melts so easily. We want your chocolates to arrive in the best condition possible, so we always encourage next day shipping during the summer months and can go up to 2 day shipping during colder months.

Do you ship nationally?

YES. We ship to the continental USA only.
