Owners Jessica Diebel and Tucker Juan are planning a soft opening this week.

While craft beer and coffee already have taken off in Northeast Florida, Jessica Diebel and Tucker Juan are hoping to make bar-to-bean craft chocolate a new trend.

They will make the chocolate in-house from cacao beans sourced from Belize and other countries.
