New Community Creative Collaborations!

Coquette values sustainability & is committed to sourcing ingredients locally whenever possible. Additionally, Coquette makes charitable contributions to several non-profit organizations in Northern New Mexico addressing food insecurity & making an overall positive impact on the unique & diverse communities here.
Coquette is grateful to Kakawa Chocolate House: https://kakawachocolates.com & Sassella Authentic Italian Deli: https://sassellasantafe.com for providing high quality chocolate truffles, cured meats, specialty cheeses & oils respectively for the new charcuterie boards available starting in May at Ahmyo River Gallery: https://www.ahmyorivergallery.com Vivác Winery will provide wines to be paired with these Coquette charcuterie boards & exclusive artisanal layered cakes in decorated jars.
https://vivacwinery.com
It is rewarding to see the interesting ways that Coquette has grown & expanded as a business since its inception in 2019. When visiting Northern New Mexico, I invite you to stop by one of the five locations to sample the artisanal cakes & charcuterie boards.
Thank you for your steadfast support of this burgeoning boutique bakery. This level of growth would not be possible without your faith in the vision for the future of Coquette. We are grateful for your generosity & demonstrated confidence in our work. Coquette looks forward to exploring new opportunities for community partnerships & further expansion.

Easter Bunny visits with Salem Food Tours are back for 2021! The Easter Bunny will be hopping to homes around the North Shore from early March to early April delivering delicious chocolates from tour partners, Harbor Sweets Handmade Chocolates, Kakawa Chocolate House, and Ye Olde Pepper Companie Salem MA. Book online at salemfoodtours.com.
You guys are the best. When my order was lost by the postal service in the pre-Christmas craziness, you replaced it so that our family could still enjoy the world's best hot chocolate together. And you did this with such good spirit and kindness. You not only make such incredible chocolate, you make the world a better place. Your elixirs make the perfect winter hot cocktail--my daughter taught me this! Add some amaretto to Tzul or Jeffersonian and...ahhhhh! We hope we can travel again before too long and visit you in person. THANK YOU!
The creative ways our communities have come together hold a special place in our hearts. Recently, The Food Depot received a special donation from artist Catherine Wygant, along with Kakawa Chocolate House owners Bonnie and Tony Bennett.

Catherine made 300 masks that were sold at Kakawa Chocolate House and 100 percent of the proceeds were donated to The Food Depot. The donation is the equivalent of 14,400 meals for northern New Mexicans in need.

Thank you, Catherine, Tony, Bonnie and all who supported this unique community fundraiser!

💕 Santa Fe is for Chocolate Lovers! 👉 https://tinyurl.com/ybfyq63q
Santa Fe winters are prime time for indulging in chocolate. Colder temperatures mean we can eat chocolate without it melting on our fingers, not that it’s ever stopped us before. Santa Fe residents and visitors can enjoy hand-crafted chocolate candies and drinking chocolates, also known as elixirs, crafted by artisanal chocolate makers. Five of them are stops on the Santa Fe Chocolate Trail. Didn’t know we had one of those? Look it up!

[07/18/20]   To clarify and respond to any misunderstanding around the Let us serve campaign, we would like to add our comments. This is a serious and frightening time for us all right now. We are saddened and hurt by the some of the feedback we have received. Our goal was to support our struggling industry; standing with friends and colleagues to show there are faces, families and stories behind each and every individual and small food establishment that is struggling mightily right now to survive not just physically but with their chosen profession and business intact. Our hope was to remind all that we need a dialog that includes everyone, and every side. We need each other, we are stronger together to find solutions and talk about both what could work and what does not. Finger pointing, name calling and divisive or politicized dialog will not make us stronger or move us forward.
At Kakawa we take the COVID-19 crisis very seriously. Our first focus has been, is, and will always be the health and safety of our employees and guests. We have required and supplied masks to protect our employees and guests from before it was a mandate. We conduct temperature checks and health screening for all employees every day. We also utilize Plexiglas barriers, social distancing, and extreme sanitizing measures. We follow all CDC and state guidelines; in fact exceeding the requirements for our New Mexico Safe Certification, which we have received. We will continue to follow the science and guidelines, adapting to changes as they are given but every day is a struggle against the most devastating economic fallout, and that is part of the reality that also has to be discussed.
Perhaps the serving campaign was premature, partially misguided or poorly articulated, for that we are disappointed but our original hope stands. We love and believe in our community. We want to see Santa Fe and New Mexico work together, listening to each other- hearing all of our challenges and hopefully together we can get creative and find solutions that will allow us to come out the other side of this crisis with our health first and foremost but also with the businesses of Santa Fe that make us the “City Different”, unique, special and a community where people want to live and visit.

Never mind honey and lemon, the best cure for a cough is CHOCOLATE

Well, we have said it seems like chocolate cures of whole lot of evils... more evidence to that fact!

dailymail.co.uk EXC: Professor Alyn Morice, founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, believes cocoa forms a coating which protects nerve endings in the throat which trigger the urge.
