The River of Lost Souls…

The river is where it all started…

La Rio de las Animas Perdidas, The River of Lost Souls, is the foundation and inspiration of ACC, and is truly the lifeblood of Durango and Southwest Colorado.  This documentary tells some of the history, ecology and stories that surround one of the last free flowing rivers in the west.  To truly understand the meanings and nomenclature of our products, is to truly understand the Animas River.  The complete documentary is available for purchase here.

Best Hot Chocolate! Dementors beware!

If you have ever wondered what the hot chocolate from the book the Polar Express actually was or what the chocolate river in Wonka's factory tasted like... as I did... This is it! After a walk through Durango at night, we found this little chocolate shop. Beginning in 1895, the building originally housed a chocolatier for almost a hundred years. After housing a few other shops, the space is once again home to chocolate... truffles, bars, chocolate-covered potato chips, and several hot chocolate concoctions. I chose the Animas blend of chocolate with home-made marshmallows and a cinnamon stick. I've never had anything like it! Although the door says "lose your soul to Chocolate" I don't think I'm losing it They have coffee and honey too. Yes, we're going back before we leave town!

A Real Jewel

This is a small shop that makes all its chocolate in house. The chocolates are as beautiful as they are delicious. Staff was very friendly as well as knowledgeable. We were treated to a complimentary demitasse cup of hot chocolate. We had picked up a coupon at the Durango Welcome Center for one free truffle, espresso, or hot chocolate. Brought home a box of assorted dark chocolates. Will return if I get an opportunity!

Beautiful and delicious chocolate!

I had sampled this delicious chocolate at a festival in Albuquerque, so I had to stop in for a supply when visiting Durango. They offer samples of hot chocolate-yummy-and all the treats on display are beautiful. Our favorite: the River Bottom slabs of flavored chocolate-the dark with chile and the milk with salted toffee. Deliciousness in Durango!

Chocolate in Durango!

This place is classy. It is a chocolate bar, with room to sit and relish your purchase. Comfortable stools, gorgeous tin ceiling, a building to enjoy the old-time Durango feel. There are scrumptious drinks as well as chocolates, but it is the atmosphere that puts this place in a class by itself. Oh, and the best mocha I have ever experienced (this is a continuous quest).

Chocolate lovers

Chocolate lovers put this on your next place to go in Durango Colorado. Chocolate swirling around the walls as you step back into history. The tin ceiling and a large glass doors welcome you to the Animas Chocolate Company in Durango on Main street. Try the hot chocolate kid friendly sizes. As you make your selections remember the building dates back to the 1880s. You are walking in history. Who knows maybe the Sundance kid or the Dalton gang stopped by for a great hot chocolate.
