The 78% dark bar opens with a spicy aroma that leads to notes of nutmeg, cassia & peppercorns. A little sweetness mixes with mellow coconut flavours.
To taste, we found this 55% coconut milk bar to have a deliciously rich and fudgy mouth feel. The coconut milk beautifully compliments the spicy flavour profile of the Ben Tre cocoa by adding a fruity layer with added notes of raisin.
ABOUT THE MAKER
The two Frenchmen behind Marou, Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou, started out in Vietnam knowing nothing about how to make chocolate. Yet after only a couple of years, the Marou name was already synonymous in the craft chocolate world with supreme-quality, ethically-produced chocolate. They pay a lot of attention to ‘terroir’, understanding that the climate, soil, and water of each province, along with different cocoa varieties and post-harvest practices, contribute to the different flavour profiles of each origin.
These generous bars have been crafted in Vietnam using cocoa beans from the southern province of Ben Tre.
