BONUS: The Father Of Korean Craft Chocolate

In this week's bonus episode, we meet Eddie Kim, the "master teacher" (a name given to him and gracefully discouraged) of the Korean craft chocolate movement. Every chocolate maker in Korea can trace their education back to him in one way or another. For the last 10 years, Eddie's been working in the cacao industry in Malaysia, traveling back to his home country of Korea every few months, to lead seminars on cacao and slowly help build a new industry from nothing.

BONUS: The Father Of Korean Craft Chocolate

Ep. 11: The Philippines Part 2

This is the continuation of the story of Philippine cacao & chocolate culture, or rather, a lack thereof. In part two we hear some of the real-life stories of Filipino cacao farmers and chocolate makers, and the obstacles they face on a daily basis. We'll explore why local culture can both help and hurt an industry's development. In this episode, we talk to three people who are active at very different levels of the industry: a farmer, a chocolate maker, and an educator. Be sure to listen to the Philippines Part 1 (https://damecacao.com/chocolate-on-the-road-the-philippines-part-1/) before diving into this week's episode. It builds up the history, consumption, and shaping of the Philippine market, setting the scene so you can understand why there's about to be a lot more Philippine cacao out on the market.

Ep. 11: The Philippines Part 2

INTERVIEW: Vincent Mourou, Co-founder Of Marou Chocolate

Vincent Mourou is widely recognized as one of the first craft chocolate makers in Asia. He's one of the co-founders of Marou Chocolate (https://marouchocolate.com/), a value-added chocolate factory established in 2011 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The company now works with farmers in six provinces in the south of the country, plus the rare single farm bar. They've inspired countless chocolate makers across Asia and the world to start their own value-added chocolate businesses in their own countries. I was lucky enough to interview Vincent for the Cacao Brands episode (https://damecacao.com/chocolate-on-the-road-cacao-brands/) of this show when we were both in Tokyo (https://damecacao.com/craft-chocolate-market-japan/) for a chocolate festival. But he gave such a good & concise interview that it was an easy choice to share it here in its entirety. We dig into how he & Sam started Marou, began sourcing cacao, and continued to grow their relationships with farmers. I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation as much as I enjoyed having it. Note that the topic of cacao sourcing plays heavily in my questions thanks to the podcast episode (https://damecacao.com/chocolate-on-the-road-cacao-brands/) for which I was interviewing Vincent.
