Lam Dong is a highland region, a mountainous province with a temperate, mild climate all year round. This stable climate rarely changes from year to year. Lam Dong has other weather phenomena of notice such as fog, salt flog, rain, thunderstorms and hail but these are not periodic. The result of growing in this area and being influenced by the weather make that cacao beans in Lam Dong result in a special type of chocolate. The taste starts off with a hint of red berries and an intense chocolate flavor. Rich and very enjoyable, the flavor is dark and robust.
