Founded in 2009, I Should Coco is a unique little chocolate boutique overlooking the harbour in St Ives, Cornwall.
This beautifully light and airy shop has a fascinating glass wall to the workshop, where customers watch the chocolatiers at work. The smell in the shop is wonderful, and there are always tasters of the work in progress. All the products are hand made on site by a team of artisan chocolatiers, headed up by founders Andrea and Kevin Parsons.
Fresh cream truffles – a treat very difficult to find – are a speciality and the team make full use of the wonderful ingredients available on their doorstep to make these sublime creations, including Cornish Cream; Honey; Strawberries; Raspberries; Elderflowers and even Cornish Seasalt.

Other exciting original products include a range of single origin chocolates from Peru; Mexico; Madagascar and many other exotic locations and award winning infused chocolates such as Nutmeg and Vanilla and Habanero chilli pepper.
Bespoke chocolate creations can be undertaken on commission for birthdays, weddings and other special occasions and these can range from a personal message to a picture hand painted in chocolate.
Its a very creative atmosphere but just to help things along, original works by local artists have been used on the wrappers and boxes and adorn the walls of the shop. Not surprisingly this unique enterprise has garnered many awards including most recently 4 Gold Awards from the Taste of the West, with undoubtedly many more to follow.

I Should Coco specialises in fine Hand Made Fresh Chocolates using local Cornish Cream and Fruit and as many other Local Ingredients as possible!
