What you should know about BOHO Chocolate:
BOHO Chocolate only sources organic premium cacao using social, economic, and environmental practices throughout the supply chain.
Our standard sized 3oz bars contain up to 45% more chocolate compared to the 1.6 oz - 2.2 oz comparable bean-to bar chocolate bars on the market at no additional price. As a result we naturally need to buy more cacao beans from the small farms and cooperatives who are our suppliers. Not only are we buying a greater quantity of beans for each bar made, but also pay an average of $7500-8000 per metric ton (2022) which is more than three times the current commodity price.** The bigger our bar, the greater the income that flows directly to the growers and small cooperatives creating long-term viability.
You benefit by purchasing award-winning chocolate that supports sustainable practices. Each grower, cooperative, producer, and retailer benefits from your supporting bean-to-bar chocolate.

My journey started by selling chocolates and confections from a small shop in New England over twenty-five years ago. Having always wanted to make my own chocolate, I became enamoured with the bean-to-bar manufacturing process and set out to produce, from start to finish, award-winning organic chocolate.
With no idea how to begin, I booked a flight to South America with a friend, where we met up with the folks from TAZA Chocolate and visited farmers, cooperatives, and local chocolate makers. I fell in love, and BOHO Chocolate was born.
BOHO is short for Bohemian, which means that we take an organic, artistic, and independent approach to making quality organic chocolate. We derive our ideas and style not from the corporate chocolate industry, but from a broad and diverse group of true artisans whose collective interest in the craft continues to transform how premium chocolate is made.
