Welcome to Platres Chocolate Workshop where we create unique and very special chocolates.
We are best known as the original creators of the award winning ‘CYPRUS CHOCOLATES’, the only chocolates in the world that have the flavour of Cyprus as they contain unique Cyprus delicacies.
The Platres Chocolate Workshop is a luxury chocolate workshop and boutique. Every chocolate is crafted by hand on site using premium ingredients sourced globally.
With the backdrop of Troodos Mountains; the Chocolate workshop is situated in the heart of Platres resort village and a 40-minute drive from Limassol city in Cyprus, awarded as one of the 10 must seen attractions in Cyprus.
John Adams, an English man, and his Cypriot wife Praxi established the chocolate workshop in 2008. Master chocolatiers trained in France and Venezuela, they dedicated their chocolate range to the flavours of Cyprus. Each chocolate captures the unique taste of this island with fillings such as provincial liquors, locally preserved fruits, and traditional sweets.
These original chocolates consistently feature in magazines, newspapers and on television internationally. Although all the chocolates are still only created in the Platres workshop, they are ordered and enjoyed on a worldwide basis. Heads of State, including the Queen of England and her family are amongst the regular customers of these Cypriot delights.
A recent innovation developed by Mr. John is Flava Chocolate. This naturally intelligent chocolate is processed differently to most commercial ‘healthy’ versions. Made with single origin beans from South America, Flava retains nearly all the nutrients of raw seed cacao and one 10g serving provides you with a whopping 55,000 antioxidants. Chocolate that tastes good, and is good for you! Flava is also suitable for diabetics, as it contains no refined cane sugar.
For true chocolate lovers, the workshop accepts advance bookings for 2 – 6 people. Larger groups can also be arranged in a local restaurant setting, or even in your own premises. Lasting 3 hours, these fun filled lessons will walk you through the rich history of chocolate, taste testing different varieties, and you be taught how to create your very own bar and decadent filled chocolates. Everything you make will be wrapped for you to take home. Thoughtful gift vouchers for these classes can also be purchased.
