Joshua Needleman and the Story of Chocolate Springs

Joshua Needleman, creator and chocolatier of Chocolate Springs Café, has been fascinated with chocolate all of his life. Joshua is a native of Lebanon Springs, New York: a town that was named for its year-round natural hot water spring that was believed to have therapeutic healing powers by the Native Americans. Ulysses S. Grant and Marquis Lafayette are among the many notable historical figures that made pilgrimages to the Lebanon Springs. The name Chocolate Springs Café pays homage to Joshua’s hometown and provides its own modern-day therapeutic escape.

Since opening, Chocolate Springs Café has become a special destination for locals and tourists alike. The serious hot chocolate and velvety mousse cakes have become local favorites. The Champagne Cognac Truffles were featured in the August 2005 edition of Time Magazine. Other articles have appeared in Sante Magazine, Berkshire Living, Travel and Leisure Magazine, The New York Times and the Berkshire Eagle. Chocolate Springs was recognized in the March 2006 issue of SAVEUR magazine as one of their TOP 10 star chocolate makers in the United States.
