Maker

Chocolaterie A. Morin

A Morin Chocolatiers are a 4th generation chocolate maker in Donzère, France. Chocolatiers from father to son since 1994, André Morin founded Chocolaterie A. Morin in 1958 to start making bean to bar chocolate. Since then, they have created artisan chocolate in accordance with chocolate making tradition.They have spent years cultivating relationships with their cocoa producers and farmers to create their line of single origin chocolate bars. They also cultivate over 15,000 acres of fruit and nut orchards to use as raw ingredients such as almonds, hazelnuts and cherries for their pralines, pastes, nougats and jams.

Cacao Region

Java, Indonesia

The volcanic island of Java is home to over half the Indonesian population, and is in fact the world's most-populous island. It was the center of the Indonesian struggle for independence during the 1930’s and 1940’s, and the country’s capital city, Jakarta, is on its northwestern coast. Java was the first place where Indonesian coffee was grown, starting in the 17th century, and by the early 20th century, Javanese coffee had gained global popularity. Thus, the name "Java" has now become a synonym for coffee in popular culture. Unfortunately, most of the smallholder farmers tasked with growing Javanese cacao are limited to selling their crop to huge chocolate manufacturers, who pay low prices & don’t pay much attention to quality.

Cacao Strain

Java

Java is the most populous island of Indonesia, also lending its name to one of the country’s most well-known strains of cacao. The strain is characterized by its overt smokiness and light cocoa flavor, yet full and complex body. This is in part thanks to the island’s humid and often rainy climate, which forces most Javanese farmers to actually smoke-dry their beans. Such an approach has likely been done on the island for centuries, as long as cacao has had a place on Javanese plantations. Sometime in the late 1800’s, Mesoamerican criollo cacao made its way to Java. Over time, cacaos brought to the island from other parts of the world have cross-pollinated to form a light-colored, genetically criollo-heavy cacao strain unique to Java. Combined with the smoke-drying typical of the island, Java cacao has become a regional genetic blend prized around the world.

Smooth and silky

Late mornings, after coffee, a little A. Morin’s is perfect to start the day. Soft and warming, it is a lovely taste for a cool summer morning.

A. Morin Java Arjuna 70%

A good friend of mine (Marie) suggested me this bar since she was particularly impressed by the tasting experience.
We are talking about fire dried cacao and the best-smoked flavor experience you can enjoy.
Sharp snap. Cool mouthfeel. Roasted/smoked scents. Slightly fruity flavor, raw almond butter, burnt brownie edges, and yet smoke/roast undertones.
It is very RUSTIC and spicy: cardamom, anise, cinnamon. A hint of leather aftertaste.
I don`t find bitterness or astringency.

A friend of mine recommended me this bar. Despite the lecithin, I can say A. Morin produces high-quality dark chocolate with a unique approach for the ultimate tasting experience. I really enjoyed the Java Arjuna and I wish to try more soon.
