Unexpected flavours from Vietnam

Our beans are mainly sourced from the Mekong Delta, often referred to as Asia’s ‘Little Venice’. We closely collaborate with small, family-owned plantations, which cultivate their beans with tremendous care. Each tree is always carefully selected, grafted, cultivated and maintained, safeguarding the unique flavour of the beans. This region’s terroir is ideal for cultivating Trinitario cocoa. The soil’s low pH lend the cocoa its delicious acidic bite.


Thanks to our unique Cacao-Trace fermentation process, we have managed to retain the Trinitario bean’s natural acidity and awaken the unique flavour notes within. Our local fermentation experts in the Bê'n Tre Province always guarantee the full expression of the bean’s flavour.
