IS COCOABEANS REALLY 100% GLUTEN - FREE ?
YES! We really are! I know it's hard to believe but we do not bring in any wheat, rye or barley at all! We carefully select all of our ingredients to be sure of no cross contamination. Making everything from scratch guarantees that we know what's in our food. It also is why our food tastes so great - because we use high quality ingredients.
WIll COCOBEANS MAKE A SPECIAL RECIPE IF I BRING IT IN?
No. We only make the products that we’ve spent the necessary time and care to develop, ensuring the highest standards are met at all times.
DO YOU MAKE SUGAR FREE CAKES FOR DIABETICS?
Yes - We can bake your cake with Xylitol instead of refined sugar. Instead of frosting we put an unsweetened fruit compote between the layers and on top. Your cake will contain natural sugars via the fruit and the starches in the flour mix that will turn to sugar eventually. So your cake will be sugar-free - but it will be up to each person to assess whether it is safe for a diabetic diet.
CAN YOU MODIFY YOUR PRODUCTS FOR MY SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS?
No - sorry. Cocoabeans popularity is based on its consistency and quality. Modifying our products by request would not be a fair representation of the time and care that has gone into each and every item we offer.
DO YOU DELIVER?
We do offer delivery for special event orders that are $200 and up. There is a delivery charge based on time, set-up and delivery.
CAN I RETURN ANY BAKED GOODS IF I DON'T LIKE IT?
Please check your order before leaving the store as provincial health rules do not allow us to accept returns on baking.
DOES COCOABEANS MAKE EVERY PRODUCT EVERYDAY?
We bake bread everyday! But it would be impossible to bake everything every day. We do our best to keep the shelves well stocked.
HOW MUCH NOTICE DO I NEED TO GIVE WHEN ORDERING A CAKE?
48 hours notice is all that is required for our standard celebration cakes. If you are ordering a non-standard cake (multi-tiered, special design elements) we would appreciate 1 week notice.
CAN I RESERVE PRODUCTS BY PHONE?
Yes, however we ask that you have a credit card available for payment. We do not reserve product without payment. If you're looking for large amounts of a specific product we would greatly appreciate 48 hrs notice.
ARE COCOABEANS PRODUCTS NUT-FREE?
NO. We use walnuts, peacns, almonds almond flour and peanut butter in our bakery. Our cakes do not contain nuts but we do have nuts in our kitchen.
