Our Story

Delicious homemade goodness

nib chocolates is owned and operated by chocolatier Stephen Smith (sometimes with a little help from his friends!).  He is a graduate of the famous Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Paris, France.  Stephen also worked at Michelin-starred restaurants Taillevent, in Paris, and Mugaritz, a molecular gastronomy restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain.  After Europe, he went to Kansas City to work with chocolatier Christopher Elbow at his namesake chocolate shop.  This is where Stephen discovered his passion and love for chocolate.  

We use no preservatives in our chocolates.  Because of this, they are best consumed within 15 days of the purchase date.  Only the freshest ingredients are included.  Our Fresh Lime is made with fresh lime juice and lime zest.  Our Mint is made with fresh mint leaves.  We grind our own spices for the Oaxacan Spice.  Trust us, it makes a world of difference.
