Founded by Dylan Butterbaugh in 2010, Mānoa Chocolate has been crafting delicious high quality bean to bar chocolate here on the island of O'ahu. All the cacao beans are ethnically sourced from not just Hawai'i but also all around the world. Mānoa Chocolate buys cacao direct from the farmers and by cutting out the middleman, the farmers are able to receive an higher price that they deserve. Dylan Butterbaugh was born and raised in Kailua, Hawai'i. He wanted to start a chocolate factory close to home where he could ride his bike to and from work. He has a facility up in Kapa'a Quarry as well as a shop on Uluniu Street in Kailua for you to visit.
