Founded in 2004 by husband and wife team Zsolt Szabad and Katalin Csiszar, Rozsavolgyi Csokolade bars combine local Hungarian ingredients with lightly roasted cacao beans to create unique and beguiling flavors. They create their chocolates in an old converted mill building in Budapest. They source their beans directly from growers in Madagascar and Venezuela, helping to maintain rare varieties and continue sustainable practices. Katalin, a graduate in graphic design, has created award-winning packaging to complement these exceptional chocolates. They are as beautiful inside as out, with each bar molded to look like a traditional Hungarian fireplace tile.
