Shipping and FAQ

Chocolate is a delightful indulgence… that can be very temperamental to ship! It is important to us that your confections arrive in the best possible condition, no matter how far they need to travel. That's why we take lots of precautions when it comes to packaging and sending out your order.

We ship via the U.S. Post Office or FedEx, depending on destination and time of year. You will receive an email with tracking information once your order has shipped. If you have trouble tracking your package, please contact us at

Once we ship your package, we are not responsible for delays caused by USPS or FedEx due to weather or mechanical errors and will not be able to offer refunds for those reasons.

We strongly recommend shipping to an address where someone will be able to receive the order, such as a place of business, and notifying the recipient of the expected delivery.

If the forecast shows that your order will experience temperatures over 72° during its journey, we will add insulation and cold packs as a courtesy.

Undeliverable Packages
Please double-check addresses before completing your order. Ococoa will not be responsible for orders delayed or returned as a result of an incorrect address. If an order is returned to us, you may incur additional shipping or product replacement fees.

Your delivery will not require a signature upon delivery. If shipping to a residential address, please ensure someone will be available to receive the package. Ococoa is not responsible for packages damaged at or taken from a destination where no person is available to receive it. We strongly recommend shipping to a business location when possible.

Please note:
● We cannot ship to a P.O. box
● We do not ship internationally
● To ship to Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, an additional $10 charge will apply.

Please note that your order must be placed in advance and no additions or substitutions will be possible once your order is ready for pickup.


      How should I care for my chocolates once they arrive?
      We recommend storing our chocolate confections in an airtight container placed in a cool, dry place or at room temperature, between 65 – 69° for up to four weeks. If you must store them in the refrigerator, make sure to keep them in an airtight container, preferably in the original box, and bring them to room temperature in order to fully enjoy the flavors and textures.
