Cocoa arrived in Madagascar at the beginning of the 20th century, which makes it a young origin. This could explain its delicious impertinence with the acidity of raspberry or is it citrus? The roasted and simultaneously fruity notes make you crave more this Madagascar chocolate. Heady is the word.
Smell the chocolate. Break a small piece and let it melt under your tongue. Give time to the chocolate to release its aromas. Enjoy. Repeat.
Our single origin chocolate is sourced from one country, one region, and even one single Cocoa farm.
Like fine wine or cheese, each cocoa plant has its roots; an origin that gives it its typicality. A taste that connoisseurs -- you, soon! -- work to identify with pleasure.
Have you ever heard of terroir?
Andzavibe plantation is named after founder Lucien Millot (1906). Seated in North Madagascar, the dazzling 3,200 acre site is the heavenly kingdom of fresh vanilla, ylang, vetiver, patchouli and... cocoa. Our partner, Valrhona, has exclusive purchase rights to 1,500 acres of this certified organic plantation, and recently became a shareholder in the Société Millot. They employ about 800 workers -- the majority of which are women -- and support local schools in their work. Travelers are graciously welcome, if you happen to pass by.
