indi chocolate

Who we are

indi chocolate sources cacao beans directly from farmers and cooperatives to make small batch, single origin, dark chocolate. We make a wide range of cacao based products including teas, spice rubs, and body care products made from cocoa butter.




We are not only passionate about chocolate we also love coffee! We are proud to serve specialty coffee drinks in our cafe in addition to single origin drinking chocolate. Hint: Ask our baristas for their favorite drink! Don't forget to check out our classes and events. We have chocolate making classes, truffle making classes and more!

indi chocolate works directly with cacao farmers around the world to provide a higher income to farmers. Cacao farmers at the country of origin grow cacao interspersed with hardwood trees, medicinal plants and crops that provide food for the families.  Plants on their farms include plantains, corn, pineapple, guava, yucca and so much more. The biodiversity of the farms provide nutrient rich soil that contribute to the flavor of the cacao itself and provides a sustainable method of growing cacao. 




The origin of indi chocolate

Erin Andrews, founder of indi chocolate has been making chocolate for over 8 years. She started making chocolate because her daughters asked her where chocolate comes from. After taking them to Belize to show them that cacao grows on trees, she fell in love with the world of chocolate. Erin has been very creative in the ways she uses the cacao bean, she started indi chocolate with her amazing cacoa butter lotions. People come back to Pike Place Market every year for her all natural, luxurious lotions and she loves to see how chocolate makes people smile!

When Erin started making chocolate, small batch chocolate machines were not robust enough and would often break down, she spent as much time fixing machines as she did making chocolate. The Chocolate Refiner has been updated specifically for chocolate making and is built to last.  If you want to learn how to make chocolate check out our bean to bar chocolate classes!

indi chocolate started in 2010 and opened up in Pike Place Market in 2013. Starting out as a small business is hard work, in order to be able to afford the equipment to make chocolate Erin Andrews started making body care to earn enough to buy chocolate making equipment. Hidden deep within the Market indi chocolate started to get a great reputation for its variety of wonderful products, fun after hour classes and our friendly staff.
