The cocoa beans for this organic milk chocolate bar originate from the Piura region of northern Peru. They give the creamy, caramel chocolate a fresh acidic aftertaste.

The first time Morin bought Peruvian cocoa beans, in 2002, it was only a few bags. They discovered the remarkable quality and developed a keen interest in cocoa from other Peruvian regions. In 2004 everything came together, as Morin started working with a French-Peruvian couple who conduct direct trade with the producers in Peru, creating the all-important short chains and transparency.

The cocoa used to create bar is grown in the Piura region, in the north of Peru. The area needs light irrigation. Years ago, the cocoa farmers in the area went on a study trip to Chuao, Venezuela, where very aromatic cocoa is produced. Since that trip, these Peruvian farmers have been growing and processing their beans in the same way as in Chuao. They are organically certified and the trees are of the Criollo variety, with approximately 35% very light-coloured beans (known as Porcelana).



The A. Morin chocolate factory has produced the finest French chocolate in the heart of the Drôme Provençale since 1884, passing through four generations of father to son. It is now run by Franck Morin, who brings the traditional chocolate maker into the contemporary chocolate scene. Chocolaterie A. Morin directly source its cacao from fine-flavour origins and is often found combining flavours picked from its back garden into its handcrafted chocolate.
