Vietnam 80% Dak Lak
An intense, chocolatey 80% dark chocolate made with cacao from the Dak Lak province of southern Vietnam.
After the major fire in the Damson kitchens in July 2016, one of our favourite chocolate makers, Marou were kind enough to send us 100kg of Vietnamese cocoa beans to help get us back up and running. This extraordinary gesture of kindness is typical of the craft chocolate industry and it's fair to say that both the gift itself and the sentiment behind it are one of the reason's we are still here.
We're often asked for a chocolate that's a little more intense than a typical 70% bar and we think the deep, chocolatey flavour of the Dak Lak beans is perfect for those looking for something a little stronger.
A huge thank you to Samuel, Vincent and everyone at Marou who helped make this bar possible.
