The taste starts with a hint of red berries and an intense chocolate flavour. Rich and very enjoyable, the flavour is dark and robust without tasting like being burnt.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Jannie and Marc have always described themselves as “chocolate addicts”. They started out making chocolate at home, but in 2015 decided they wanted to share their passion with the world – and so Belvie was born. Made from the finest Vietnamese cocoa beans, Belvie’s chocolate is handcrafted in small batches to maintain quality. Their beans are purchased directly from local farmers, and they see paying a premium price as an important step in halting the decline of Vietnam’s cocoa farmers.
Lam Dong is a highland region, a mountainous province with a temperate, mild climate all year round. This stable climate rarely changes from year to year. Lam Dong has other weather phenomena of note such as fog, salt flog, rain, thunderstorms and hail but these are not periodic. The result of growing in this area and being influenced by the weather means that cocoa beans in Lam Dong produce a special type of chocolate.
