So many wonderful chocolate makers out there. So many amazing chocolate bars and flavors to be discovered. Yet so little is known about this in Belgium, the so called country of chocolate.
Slowly the tide is turning and people start to understand there is more to be found out there than the industrial chocolate display in the local supermarket. The internet offers a great opportunity to get your hands on some great chocolate you don’t find in the regular shops easily.
It was after discovering a Lithuanian made chocolate, that Björn Becker and his wife Julia Mikerova decided to set up an online store, based in Brussels, the very center of Belgium. They combine the shop with inventive “after-lunch” and “after-work” tastings in monday, giving people in the Brussels area the chance to discover bean to bar chocolate for themselves.
