Marou opens first cacao lab in Ho Chi Minh City
Since crafting the first bar of Marou Chocolate in their kitchen in early 2011, Vincent Mourou and his partner Samuel Maruta, have scooped up a raft of international awards and tickled the world's imagination about cacao from Vietnam. Today, Marou opens the first cacao lab in downtown Ho Chi Minh City: Maison Marou.
Maison Marou is bringing the heady scent of roasting cacao to the buzz of downtown Saigon.
Visitors to 167-169 Calmette will discover a patisserie and café tucked amid the flow of a small, working chocolate factory.
Positioned at the heart of Ho Chi Minh City's newly-vibrant riverfront ward, Maison Marou offers seekers of an authentic chocolate adventure a place to land.
“At Maison Marou, you'll get the full 360 degree experience”, said Marou co-founder Vincent Mourou. “We'll take you from cacao bean to chocolate bar and beyond.”
