How it all started:
Founder Charles Burke started his journey selling chocolates and confections from a small shop in New England over twenty-five years ago. Having always wanted to make his own chocolate, he 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, he booked a flight to South America with a friend, where they met up with the folks from TAZA Chocolate and visited farmers, cooperatives, and local chocolate makers. He fell in love, and BOHO Chocolate was born.
