Young Andrea, Luciano's second son, was often employed to deliver the coffee to regular customers throughout the area, mainly caffes, pasticcerias, and confectioners. Coffee and chocolate are great companions and it was during this time that Andrea came under the spell of chocolate making.
In 1986 the roasting house moved to a larger space and Andrea's father added a caffe. Extra space allowed Andrea to set up a workspace of his own, for chocolate. Thanks to his passion for the careful selection and roasting of cocoa beans, and his completely homemade production methods, Andrea has gained a worldwide reputation for his chocolate. Andrea Slitti's chocolate making ability has accustomed professionals and chocolate fanciers alike to delicious and beautiful creations. His extra bitter bars are the ultimate chocolate-without-distractions experience.
He also creates chocolate pralines filled with classic and innovative creams using almonds, hazelnuts, coffee, tea and other flavorings. Rectangles, squares, balls, and cups of dark, milks, and white chocolate are the result, each creatively decorated with the likes of contrasting chocolate and even gold leaf.
These are some of the most beautiful and delicious chocolates that we've ever tasted. Wrapped in Andrea's signature cream colored sleeve and brown and gold ribbon, they will make a great gift for the chocolate lover in your life.
