Krak Chocolade – Vietnam Anh Em B10


Even though cacao was introduced to Vietnam in the late 1800’s, it wasn’t until the 21st century that it started to be cultivated on a more professional level. Cocoa is currently grown in Vietnam by more than 12,000 farmers who typically cultivate on plots of 1 to 3 hectares. Coconut and fruit trees such as pomelo, banana and longan are also grown on the plots.  Anh Em Cacao Co. was founded in 2017 by two school friends – Truong Minh Thang and Nguyen Duy Thong – who share a passion for cacao and chocolate. After realizing that the quality of the cocoa produced in Dak Lak could be improved, they did research on microbial biodiversity and post harvesting processes to optimize the flavour potential of the beans. This cocoa would become the basis for some of the award winning chocolate Truong and Nguyen started to produce through their brand Tbros. Proud of the quality they were able to achieve with the farmers and looking to further benefit the producers and their communities, Anh Em would go on to export these beans to Europe and the rest of the world.”

Mark Schimmel is an experienced pastry chef who fell in love with chocolate. Working in in three-start Michelin kitchens, he was introduced to the flavours that can be found in fine cacao. He founded Krak Chocolade and aims to stay as close as possible to the taste profile of the origin and accentuate what makes the each bean unique.Amsterdam port is the world's biggest cacao operation. The "commodity crop" flows through the port but the warehouses and traders also attract many speciality cacao shipments. Every chocolate maker in the world dream of having that many different cacao varieties just down the road and Mark takes full advantage. He focuses on making chocolate for Europe's top restaurants but we're delighted he also makes bars to share with everyone else. See more
