Cocoa Press started in 2014 as our founder’s vision from an engineering project during his senior year of high school and grew through his time at the University of Pennsylvania.
In 2019 Cocoa Press was selected for the Pennovation Accelerator to develop the product and business. After the accelerator, Cocoa Press chose to permanently set up shop at the Pennovation Center to begin its journey.
As Cocoa Press developed, the team began to realize the vision of creating personalized 3D printed chocolate for everyone. Going further, Cocoa Press hopes to inspire confectionery innovation, enhance chocolate experiences, and spark creativity in everyone.
