Cocoa chemistry.

If tasting is believing, then Beta5 may be your newfound oracle. Founders Adam Chandler and Jess Rosinski of the Vancouver-based confectionary company have rooted their creations in chemistry—the name is based upon the form-5 beta crystal structure, a stable form of cocoa butter crystallization that is created when chocolate is properly tempered—and specialize in handcrafted chocolates, pastries, preserves, and other sweet objets d’art. Culinary design at Beta5 draws from organic forms and the natural world, like the Polygon Bar, an undulating work of art meant to mirror the mountains of British Columbia. So, box up some favourites for a sweet-toothed friend, or give the ultimate gift: membership into the official Beta5 Chocolate Union, which includes a monthly box of surprise selections.
