About Morin:

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.

The cocoa beans for this bar are from the first Cocoa Cooperative established in Panama in 1952.  At that time it had 19 members. Today there are 1,500 members and more than 3,000 families benefit from the cooperative’s programs.  The Cocoa is grown in a UNESCO World heritage site, whose rainforest contains extraordinary biodiversity.   In 1997, following a history of environmental degradation, the Ngöbe-Buglé region in northwestern Panama finally acquired provincial autonomy.  And the Ngöbe and Buglé peoples are now co-operating together to grow this cocoa.  Because the farmers are all quite isolated, the the post-harvest processing of the cocoa, from fermentation to drying, is done individually.  But they still manage to maintain extremely high standards

Tasting notes:

This is a smooth, rich dark chocolate with a flavour profile that one can only describe as chocolate pudding. This dark bar is on the slightly sweeter side at 63%, but boy does it delight the palate. There is light acidity with a delicate nutty flavour.
