Michel Cluizel’s Plantation Chocolates are made from high quality cocoa beans sourced from an individual plantation. This allows them to create exceptional chocolates that embody the character of a unique terroir. Working in partnership with farmers, they develop the different stages in processing the cocoa beans (fermentation, drying) before roasting them ourselves at their workshops in Normandy. The aromatic profile of the Plantation Chocolates reflects their single origin, the expertise of the farmers and the roasting skills of the Manufacture.
