Expertise of Denver Williams: After lots of planning and almost as much dreaming, we opened Denver Williams in October 2017. Our goal was to open an old-fashioned neighborhood chocolate shop where real chocolate connoisseurs and kids could feel equally welcome. We wanted to make our chocolates on site, where anyone could see what we were doing. Now, we are a shop were people stop by to say hello, to thank us for being the best chocolate shop around and of course to get chocolates and other handmade candies for all kinds of occasions.

A fascination for the science and a passion for the flavors!



We are always experimenting with unexpected flavors to pair with chocolate and our confections.

We are always happy to talk about the technical aspects of chocolate and candy making, that includes advice on your projects at home.


95% rule

95% of our products should appeal to 95% of our customers. You may have your preferences, but we want you to like just about everything.


Boundary Free

We have lived in many countries and know that good ideas can come from anywhere. Our chocolates reflect some of our travels.

About Us

We are a small team of people in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, right by the Canal Saint Martin. We make almost everything right in our shop. If you are ever in the neighborhood, please stop for a visit. You can see what we are making and even ask us questions. We are happy to share what we know with you.

Jed Jordan is our American-born chocolatier. He trained at Peter Kump’s School of Culinary Arts in New York City and at the Institut National de Boulangerie Patisserie in Rouen. He continued his training with chocolatier Jean-Marc Rué and Keiko Orihara in Paris. Frédéric Bichon is his husband and co-conspirator.

Our goal is to bring the people in our community (both physical and online) the joy and pleasure of artisanal chocolate/confections at a reasonable price. We may not attract the attention of critics or people looking for the perfect Instagram photo, but we aim to do good quality work and in some small way, make the world a happier place.

Who is Denver Williams?

Denver Williams was Jed’s grandfather. He was the first person in Jed’s family to come to Paris – in the summer of 1945, then as a US Army Captain. After returning to the US, he was always cooking and instilled a love for candy-making in his grandson, Jed. The shop is named in his honor. If you visit our shop, you can see photos of him and Jed’s other relatives near their home in the American Midwest.
