Angi discovered her love for chocolate in 2016, after moving from Germany to Seattle. In Germany she used to work as a Chemical Engineer for paints. During a Chocolate Factory Tour she realized that chocolate and paint coatings are made with very similar machines, that blew her away! That experience was the first time she thought about working in chocolate. A couple of weeks later she stumbled into her first job as a chocolate maker. She learned how to make chocolate from the cacao bean, created fun and interesting truffle combinations and met many inspirational people in the process. After 2 years and a lot of work later, she decided to start her own chocolate company and that is how ChocolateSpiel began.
