This 72% 2014 Serian Malaysia dark chocolate bar is the 2nd bar I’ve had by the London, England based craft chocolate maker Beau Cacao. This particular bar is #302 out of just 3,800 bars that will be made from the 2014 harvest.
Beau Cacao was founded by Bo San Cheung, and Thomas Delcour, and currently features two bars made from Malaysian cacao.
