Providing meals to neighbors in need with every bar sold.
Since its first bar sold, jcoco has harnessed the power of chocolate to feed our hungry neighbors in need. With every purchase of jcoco, 10% of net profits go to Americans affected by food insecurity through incredible food bank partners like Northwest Harvest, Food Bank for New York City, and San Francisco Marin Food Bank.

Chocolate crafted as food. Giving back with every bar. Bold yet balanced flavors. And a healthy dose of color. When CEO Jean Thompson founded jcoco (pronounced jay-koko), the ultra-premium sister brand to Seattle Chocolate in 2012, her mission was twofold: elevate the way people experience chocolate and turn an everyday indulgence into an opportunity to make a difference. Today, jcoco is a cult-favorite among epicureans and has donated more than 3.5 million servings to organizations working to combat hunger.
Chocolate is food
High-quality cacao can transcend our expectations of chocolate. We think of artisanal chocolate as its own food group, and we serve jcoco as dessert, in tasting flights and food and wine pairings, and alongside—or in place of—sweet and savory courses. Our signature 1oz. mini bars are just the right size for experiencing the bright, bold, complex, and nuanced flavors of jcoco. Some people break bread at the table; we believe in breaking chocolate.
Meet our founder
Jean Thompson, jcoco’s founder and the “j” in jcoco, is an unstoppable force for change. Her vision for the future includes chocolate as its own course at the table, a food celebrated as both delicious and nutritious, and appreciated for its rich layers of flavor and nuance based on terroir, fermentation, and roasting.
She built jcoco as a brand that respects its farmers, its supply chain, and its revered product: chocolate. And because an indulgence can always be an opportunity to make a difference, jcoco was founded to give back to hungry neighbors in need with every bar.
