Simón Coll has a rich company spanning back to 1840. The founder Simón Mestres was born to a family of wine-makers from Sant Sadurní d’Anoia. While his brother dedicated himself to wine, Simón established a new business a few doors from the family house. There he opened a shop selling “overseas” products such as cocoa and coffee. Daily contact with cocoa led him to chocolate-making.  By hand, he created various chocolate formulas which would soon become the most sought-after products for clients of Casa Simón. From 1840 to the present, six family generations have contributed in making Simón Coll what it is today. Simón Coll have remained t in Sant Sadurní d’Anoia, Barcelona, from where we continue to write their history.
