About Us

On the 4th September 2015 Joe Vaughan opened 1683 Chocolate Place in Knowle, Solihull. Joe turned 16 just two weeks before opening his shop,

Joe trained with Callebaut at the Chocolate Academy in Banbury, Uk. After leaving the Academy from such an intensive course Joe knew that he really had to work hard on producing the quality of Chocolates he wanted.

We believe that by not using preservatives into the chocolates we produce we can get the best flavour possible. As a result we have chocolates ranging in shelf lives between 1 month and 6 months.
