There is a lot to geek out about in the Bayview kitchen of Feve Artisan Chocolatier. An enrobing machine to cover truffles or candied ginger in chocolate. A panning machine that looks like a cement mixer but smells like cacao. A ventilation booth for airbrushing confectionary.
Feve's owner, Shawn Williams, worked under the nationally known Ewald Notter before starting Au Coeur des Chocolats, and then flew under the radar for five years. Last year, new investors and a Kiva loan helped him rebrand and invest in equipment and packaging.
Now Feve's sleek black boxes are appearing in stores such as Faletti Foods and Bryan's, and he's opening his studio for retail sales on Wednesdays from 3 to 5 p.m.
