L’Atelier des 5 Volcans – Réserve du Dja Vanilla 66%
The cocoa from the banks of the river Dja, with its fresh green, herby flavor, is on the last moment mixed with genuine Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar. This creates an intense taste sensation.
Tree to bar from Cameroon
From the edge of the Reservé de faune du Dja.
A pirogue glides over the river Dja. On the shore there grow the cocoa trees and they swing with the murmur of the rainforest. On the other side is one of the largest nature reserves in Africa. This immense greenness brings fresh and vegetable aromas in the cocoa.
The Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar is one by one cut. The mildly sweet scented marrow was on the last moment added to the otherwise unprocessed Dja chocolate, so that it does not evaporate. This creates one of the finest chocolate -vanilla-bars that exists.
Laetitia Paravisini is a trained patissier and has been extensively skilled in the world of growing cocoa and chocolate making. She did this also in South America. When she arrived in Cameroon in 2013, many cocoa plantations were abandoned. The farmers simply got paid too bad. They switched to growing oil and rubber palms. Leatitia took over the management of two deserted plantations, including Dja, and brought them back to life. She works with twenty people on land and in the workshop. They are trained in growing, harvesting, fermenting and drying. And of course, making great chocolate. By making chocolate in Cameroon, much more income remains in the country.
