Lauren Adler

Chief Chocophile
Greater Seattle Area
Lauren Adler founded Chocolopolis to satisfy a craving for more than just chocolate. She has a passion for sharing the story of fine cacao, from its origins as a revered Aztec drink to the varied flavor profiles of cacao grown in different regions of the equatorial belt. Lauren opened Chocolopolis in 2008 just as the craft chocolate movement was beginning in the US. She is a pioneer and a thought-leader in the craft chocolate movement who has used her skills as an educator to create a loyal and engaged chocolate community through her curation of one of the largest collections of craft chocolate bars in the country. She has over 10 years of experience in tasting chocolate made with fine flavor cacao, and she has become a sought-after taster and media commentator on the craft chocolate market.
