The prestigious Morin family have been making chocolate in France since 1884 and the company is now run by Franck Morin. In 1958 Franck’s grand-father, André, opened a chocolate factory and started to make bars. Morin source their cocoa beans from a range of places around the world, including Trinidad and Tobago, Ecuador, São Tomé and Principé, Madagascar, Venezuela and Jamaica.
About the bar:
In a small town of Nkog-Ekogo in the Lekié department of Centre Province in Cameroon, the original plantation has been running for over 50 years, with the great-grandparents of the current producer having cultivated Forastero cacao. But since 20 years ago, younger generations have started running new plantations with others varieties (including Trinitario). In the recent years, the co-operatives harvesting the cacao have raised the issue of the slow demise of the Forastero bean.
This limited edition milk chocolate is creamy and nutty, with a rich cocoa intensity. The milk chocolate melts on the tongue easily and cleanly, signature of Morin.
