There are five bars in the Marou collection, each from a different region of Viet Nam and all conveying their own individual qualities to titillate your taste buds. Each bar evolves from the richness of the soil, rainfall and overall climate of the region and then conveys its own unique characteristics through the chocolate.
The small farmers who grow these distinctive quality beans cultivate the cacoa trees in the shade of taller fruit trees such as coconut or cashew. They then dry and ferment the beans themselves on their farms. These beans are then packed in burlap sacks and are processed by the team at Marou.
Bên Tre – 78% 100g
Made using cocoa beans from Ben Tre province in the Mekong Delta where the cacoa trees are planted amongst the coconut groves. This is an intense chocolate but not overpowering – the flavours are very balanced.
