Pralus Chocolate - Sao Tome 75%Pralus
Francois Pralus is a rare example of French chocolatier who makes his own chocolate. In case of Pralus he receives his own dried cocoa beans from the very best cacao plantations from around the world. His collection of single origin chocolate bars became well-known worldwide for their smooth texture and deep taste of real chocolate. This Sao Tome single plantation chocolate bar is made of very balanced cacao beans from Sao Tome island plantation in African western equatorial part. This chocolate was produced in France using a gentle process of roasting and brewing of cacao beans. The aim of the process is to produce amazingly smooth and fruity chocolate without an overload of sugar.
This is a result of the trees' genetic purity.

Pralus House was founded by Auguste Pralus. He opened his first bakery in 1948 and in 1955 obtained the title of Meilleur Ouvrier de France due to his high-quality work. Auguste Pralus was a very popular pastry chef in France back in the mid-1900's. He was the inventor of the "Praluline", a brioche infused with pralines made with Valencia almonds and Piedmont hazelnut and rolled in rose petal infused sugar. Today, it is his son, François PralusMaster Chocolatier who took over the House. Pralus workshops produce over 100 tons of chocolate per year from beans from around the world. Know-how and the tradition of Pralus go further and today the Chocolate factory has its own plantation in Madagascar to provide an increasingly delicious range.
