Olive and Sinclair Chocolate Co.
Scott Witherow holds out a cylindrical bin full of black and brown bits and invites me to take a whiff. Without thinking, I lean in eyes closed and breathe in the scent, expecting fragrant cocoa. Instead, pungent fumes hit me in the face, sending my head backwards in a reflexive jolt. “Whoa! What is that?” I ask, eyes squinting, straining for the nonchalant. Scott puts the top back on and smiles. I smile back, and peer over all the buckets stacked up around this corner of the shop, wondering what other surprises Scott Witherow has in store.
