Andrea Maldonado, who is a Mexico City native, opened Chokolatta with her husband Oscar. Andrea started by making chocolate covered strawberries and her passion grew from there. According to the owners of Chokolatta, chocolate is meant to soothe the soul and was not meant to just be a candy. It is an art that has delighted palates for thousands of years. As a family-owned business, one of their top priorities is to make everyone feel at home when they are inside.
Chokolatta has all kinds of delicious treats for different tastes. They don’t only offer sugary sweets, they also offer sugar-free, gluten-free, and vegan desserts with all natural ingredients and no preservatives. We had a chance to talk to Andrea’s husband Oscar Maldonado. The questions we asked are below:
