About
Our fine Panamanian chocolate is made on premises from the bean. Organic cacao grown by small farmers in the Bocas del Toro region is transformed into chocolate and presented to you in the form of exquisite truffles, bars and more. CHOX is first and foremost a chocolate shop, not a factory or tour facility; however, we would be happy to show you the chocolate making process upon advance request.

We loved the class so much! From learning about the sustainable cocoa trade to the art of making true artisan chocolate!

I not only learned about how chocolate is made, but also about local tribes and trade! I was fascinated by the entire process and loved that I could touch, smell and taste all the way through. From chocolate liquers to cocoa tea, to tasting all the different chocolates - flavors so rich and complex, I don't know if I can go back to commercial chocolate! I especially enjoyed making my own chocolate bars with combinations of white and dark chocolates, fruits, nuts, and coconut.

My bars turned out very professional looking and sooo delicious. I had an incredible time and would recommend this experience to both adults and children alike!

My brother and I were fortunate enough to do the chocolate class with Baris and Nina. What a fantastic learning and tasty experience! They were very patient with our clumsy attempts with the pouring of the chocolate into the molds. As Baris pointed out” chocolate making can be messy, but it’s all eatable “! I would do it again in a second!

This chocolate class was one of the highlights of my trip to Panama. Baris is very knowledgeable and first gave a detailed explanation of how chocolate is made from harvest to end product. His 9 year old son is also passionate about chocolate already and was keen to demonstrate the whole process :) We then went on to making lots of most delicious chocolate. This was good fun - I only struggled to not eat it all right after the class had finished. All in all a great class by a warm and welcoming family!

Oh my god what fun! Making great chocolate and eating samples. Now I have even more favorite types of chocolate. So informative and fun to color and form the chocolates we’re bringing home to our friends.
Note that Google lying and is still telling us they are in town but they are now and have been for a while, just outside of Boquete towards David. Need a car or taxi.

We loved this class. When they say "bean to bar", they mean it. We learned all about how to make their delicious, high quality chocolate and left with a pound of it that we have been sharing with people we meet. Baris is very patient and helpful as well as very interesting to talk to. Everyone is amazed at how delicious it is! We highly recommend this class!

Super interesting and complete chocolate making class. Which shows you the complete process from bean to bar. Thought by the nicest couple!
Got to make and decorate loads of chocolate, which you are also given to take home.
They have a studio just south of boquete.
Recommend 10 out of 10.

Our family took a chocolate making session with Baris and Nyeneweh. They were such good teachers. You could really feel their passion for the art. They taught us the full process from raw cacao beans, roasting and grinding, right though to making variations on dark and milk chocolate. Our kids loved it. The cacao beans that they source from the local indigenous groups were so flavourful, I couldn't believe it.
We have savoured the chocolate that we made in the class for several weeks because it is so good.

We bought Coffee chocolate from Baris at the Farmer’s market. It tastes amazing, nothing like I ever tasted before.
We met his amazing family from Turkey, very friendly people.
