Taste The Difference
We make all our confections with the finest, freshest ingredients from family-owned farms and local gardens right here in Maine and nearby New England states. And we love using exotic ingredients from the tiny, far-off corners of the world, scouring from small, family farms so our dollars directly benefit other local communities as often and as much as possible.
We use single-origin chocolates from producers in Latin America who treat the growers, harvesters, and flora and fauna on their lands with respect. Not only do they produce some of the best chocolate in the world, they create alliances with local producers, promote the preservation of innovative techniques, and develop sustainable production practices to last for years to come.
Kate Shaffer, artistic director and founder of Ragged Coast Chocolates, started making exquisite confections in her tiny, home kitchen on Isle Au Haut, Maine eight years ago. From truffles and caramels to cookbooks and baking mixes, Kate and her husband Steve have grown the company far beyond its modest start into an award-winning and nationally-recognized purveyor of the finest chocolates in the world.
BY FAR THE BEST
These are by far the best chocolates I have ever eaten. I also ordered two boxes for a friend and she agrees that they are the best.
Amazing chocolates that always delight the people I want to delight the most!
Excellent service and chocolates. Really can’t go wrong with anything they sell.
