With a diverse geography of rolling hills, plains, and great beaches, Vietnam is a country of contrasts; and unlike most other countries of similar size, extends across two climatic zones, with a moderate climate in the North, and a tropical climate in the South.
Shaped like an S on the map, Vietnam is located on the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. It has a long land border of 4,550 km, bordering China to the North, Laos and Cambodia to the West, and the South China Sea of Pacific Ocean to the East. Visitors are attracted by the natural beauty of the country from the green rice fields in the north, to the fascinating bustle of the Mekong Delta in the south. It is a country with a long history, and many traditions woven in to it’s heritage, making it a place of breathtaking scenery and hidden ancient treasures.
Cocoa was introduced to Vietnam by the French in the late 19th century. There are two main cocoa growing regions; the Mekong Delta (with the famous Ben Tre) and Tien Giang Province, and the Central Highland with the Lam Dong and Dong Nai provinces.
Our Vietnam 72% is a stunning dark chocolate, overwhelming the senses with the pronounced acidic taste of the Trinitario cocoa bean, zesty citrus notes, light mokka and the warm undertones of wood.
