CoCoa Press, based out of Philadelphia Pennsylvania, has announced the availability of their much anticipated 3D printer capable of making things out of chocolate. Reservations begin today with delivery expected to happen this fall.
We’ve been watching the CoCoa Press evolve over time and we’ve been really impressed. After this delightful interview at Midwest RepRap Fest last year (above), they have made even more improvements. The results they are showing online are a step above what we’ve seen in the past from anyone doing chocolate on a standard desktop platform.

- Food-safe materials and easy-to-clean design, with all parts that touch food
- removable without tools and washable in the sink
- 0.8mm nozzle for precise chocolate extrusion
- 70g chocolate capacity per cartridge
- 140mm x 150mm x 150mm build volume
- Works with open-source slicers like PrusaSlicer
- Capable of printing complex designs, such as print-in-place gears and an
- articulating fish
- “No print failures” – any mistakes can be simply eaten as a snack!
