Bulk Chocolate Purveyor?

Apparently Chocolate Covered in Noe Valley has closed (ensue panic!)

Does anyone know where to get high quality bulk chocolate in the Bay Area? I need *couverture* chocolate specifically.

    1. If you have a tax #
      Pacific Goumet http://www.pacgourmet.com/
      Cheese Works http://www.thecheeseworks.com/
      Or if you can buy in advance direct from Valrhona http://www.valrhona-chocolate.com/val...

      1. I buy online from Chocosphere during the cooler months. I think they're located in Oregon.

        1. Have you tried Sugar and Spice - http://sugarnspicesf.com/Home_Page.html - about two blocks from the Colma BART station or in the East Bay I buy my chocolate for ganache at Spun Sugar - http://spunsugar.com/cart/index.php?m... - in Berkeley at the intersection of University and California.

          1. Gourmet Corner in San Mateo had a selection of commercial-size bags of French chocolate last week.


            1. TCHO sells it online. Perhaps they also sell it at their factory on the Embarcadero?

              1. You can buy it at Spun Sugar in Berkeley.

                1. I own Chocolate Covered and am sitting in a very open store right now. We moved 5 years ago
                  1 block west to a larger space at 4069 24th St. I currently have several Felchlin chocolates
                  and a small amount of Amano. Jack 415 -641-8123

                    WHAT?! Oh my gosh! JACK!!

                    well #1 - thank God! I was very very sad.

                    #2 - where the hell was I the other night?

                    panic subsided.
