When I was first introduced to craft chocolate, one of the early chocolate bars I tasted was Marou's Dak Lak 70%, the bar instantly became one of my favorites and can be found in my stash at all times. After tasting the bar, I read about Marou's origins and was intrigued. Not many chocolate makers use Vietnamese cacao and there is even fewer Vietnamese bean to bar chocolate makers. I reached out to Samuel and was ecstatic when he accepted to participate in our interview.
You can't walk through Vienna without being tempted by one of their many chocolate shops. Vienna loves its chocolate and it's not hard to miss. Whether you are strolling through Innenstadt, Leopoldstadt or Neubau you are sure to find the deliciousness of chocolate.
