TBROS chocolate maker was started by Truong Minh Thang and Nguyen Duy Thong, friends and classmates from high school, in 2017. They, along with the rest of the company sharing the love for cacao and chocolate, are like “bros” in a family.
Truong works directly with cacao farmers in Vietnam, sourcing beans from various provinces around the country. When sourcing cacao from Dak Lak, Truong buys the pods directly from the farmers. He then ferments and dries the beans using his own TBROS method. For all other origins (including Tien Giang), Truong looks for fine flavour cacao produced by small farmers and supports and encourages them maintain (or better) their quality.
This 70% dark chocolate is creamy and very nutty, with delicate balsamic notes. This is a great comparison to the Tien Giang 70%.
