Our Story


 

Arcay Chocolates is a family-owned chocolate business in Washington D.C. We started making chocolates in our native country Venezuela in a small corner of our home’s kitchen in 2006. Our master chocolatier, Anabella Arcay, quickly grew the business and gained international notoriety after receiving 42 medals at the International Chocolate Awards. In 2017, we uprooted our company to the United States with the dream of sharing our mouthwatering creations with the rest of the world. As Hispanic entrepreneurs, it’s our pride and joy to represent Venezuela through our confections. 

With more than 15 years of experience, we offer an exquisite selection of colorful chocolate bonbons filled with exotic flavors such as passion fruit, lemon basil, and blackberry cardamom. All chocolate bonbons are handcrafted in small batches using all-natural ingredients. We have an expansive line of chocolate confections that includes chocolate truffle boxes, chocolate bars, hot chocolate bombs, ganache spreads, chocolate-covered dried fruits, and baked goods. We also offer mouthwatering desserts for catering in the Washington Metropolitan area. Our goal is for our customers to “experience the art of chocolate.”

Family Tradition

Arcay Chocolates is at its core a family effort. While Anabella is making chocolates, her husband Dario Berti is behind the scenes running operations, delivering orders, and greeting clients. Their daughter Bella is the head of marketing and social media. Meanwhile their son Tomas helps assemble chocolate boxes and organizes workshops.
