Cocova: This Time, With Company

Yesterday was an outstanding day. Sure, I got to bike AND run in the morning, which always makes me happy, even in oppressive DC humidity. But even better, I got to meet this special lady.

Hannah! Here all the way from Australia. When I found out she was going to be in DC, I pestered her for an in-person meet up, and bribed her with a visit to Cocova with all its delightful chocolate offerings from the U.S. and around the globe.
Evidently, many European chocolates are harder to come by in Australia, so she and I both admired the Cluizel and Pralus, and I even sent her away with one of my favorite bars - the Virginia-made Potomac Chocolate Upala 82% cacao bar.

Come back soon, Hannah. We have more Vosges bars to dissect.


  1. Oh you met Hannah!!! :)


    It was truly, truly lovely to meet you (finally!) in person, dear Victoria. I am still mindboggled by your athletic prowess, and delighted by the chocolates we sampled and bought together. I'm saving the Potomac to break up the boredom on the Bolt Bus on Sunday. :)

    P.S. I'll be back. I'll definitely be back.

  3. That chocolate place looks amazing!
