Soma Ben Tre, Vietnam 70% Dark Chocolate
Weight: 65 grams
Cocoa Bean Origin: Mekong Delta, Ben Tre, Vietnam
Notes: Bến Tre is a coastal province on the Mekong Delta and the birthplace of cacao in Vietnam. The tropical area is low-lying with a vast network of rivers, rice paddies, swampland and small canals that reach far into the farmland. 30-40 small 2-3 acre cacao farms are organized as fermentary groups. Wet beans are transported to one central place for fermenting in wooden boxes.
The beans are from Marou Faiseurs de Chocolat in Saigon who work directly with the farmers. The cacao is special to us, not only for its exceptional flavours, but also as a fond reminder of a beautiful friendship that started during a monsoon in Saigon.
