Luxuriously creamy milk chocolate or decadent dark chocolate, handmade in the United Kingdom from the finest Fairtrade cocoa beans. We think you deserve a treat. So whether you are looking for luxury chocolate bars, artisan truffles or a chocolate gift, browse our collection of luxury chocolate and discover the best chocolate shop experience without leaving your sofa.

Luxury Handmade Chocolate 

Willie of Willie's Cacao handcrafts his chocolate in small batches in his factory in Devon. He uses single estate cacaos direct from the farmers to which he adds only raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter, plus milk powder from British milk for his milk chocolates.

Tasting the single estate handmade chocolate will transport your taste buds on journeys around the world. The differences in flavour are incredible. And if you really want to treat yourself, or someone else, indulge in a box of delectable praline chocolate truffles or the bite into the molten sea salt caramel chocolate pearls.

Once you've discovered the incredible variety of flavour that comes simply from combining different beans with a great chocolatier, you might like to develop the love affair and try some of the delightfully different flavours Choc Affair has to offer.

From classics like salted caramel to crazier sounding combinations like lavender and lime or rhubarb, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Choc Affair believes that when you enjoy a chocolate treat you want to know your pleasure doesn’t come at someone else's expense, so they make sure their business is as ethical as possible.

Why Fairtrade Chocolate?

We have ensured that all of our chocolate meets or exceeds the Fairtrade label but also tastes divine! Buying ethical chocolate is vital as it helps to make cocoa farming sustainable by ensuring farmers are paid enough to live and feed their families on. The brands we have chosen also invested in business or community projects both in the UK and in the country they are buying from.

Handmade chocolate - How bean-to-bar chocolate is made.

1. The making of luxury chocolate starts with harvesting the cacao beans, with the process of turning them into chocolate starting immediately as the pods are cut open and the cocoa beans scooped out.
2. The beans are then fermented to develop their flavour before being dried in the sun. This is the main way in which the farmer will impact the chocolate flavour with the fermentation process.
3. Next, the cocoa beans are shipped to the chocolate factory where they are roasted by the chocolatier and winnowed to remove the shell. Willie's cacao roast their beans in antique ball roasters. The length of roasting time will depend on the type of bean and the desired flavour.
4. Cocoa nibs are then ground and refined, turning the cocoa to a fine paste known as cocoa mass or cocoa liquor. This pure, unrefined form of chocolate contains both the cocoa solids (which gives the chocolatey flavour and is removed when making white chocolate) and cocoa butter (the fat of the cocoa bean). If the cocoa butter is removed you are left with cocoa powder, great for hot chocolate.
5. Conching is the next stage in the process, invented by Rodolphe Lindt in 1879. It can take up to 12 days and is where sugar and other ingredients are added to the liquor. It's this process that gives your gourmet chocolate its smooth texture.
6. Finally, the chocolate is tempered. A process of precisely heating and cooling the chocolate, creating exactly the right sized crystals to achieve a shiny finish and satisfying snap.

All that remains is to pour into chocolate moulds, wrap, unwrap and enjoy!
