Morin – Puerto Cabello Dark
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.
This bar was made from history. ‘At the time of colonization, the congested port received its name from the Spaniards who said that the sea was so quiet that you could attach the boats to the pontoon with a single hair.’
The area became one of the most favourable areas of Spanish settlers to cultivate cocoa. This cocoa tree heritage continues because of the natural flavouring coming from the beans from the perfect climate to grow cocoa beans.
These beans are a combination of Trinitario with a high content in Criollo. They have been sourced from the Carabobo region.
The dark chocolate has a rich and indulgent profile. Luscious hints of sweet cream give way to notes of malt and toasted nuts. A slightly roasted finish
