Welcome to the chocolate haven of Sandra Mielenhausen (the former marketing director of LVMH) and Nicolas Rozier-Chabert (the former boss of a graphic design agency): a windowed facade, cleverly unfinished walls, jute bags nonchalantly scattered around, and a bean-to-bar philosophy that has them seeking out top-quality beans from Venezuela, Peru, West Papua, Tanzania and Belize… Which the duo intensifies with the addition of cow’s milk, sheep’s milk or even coconut milk, to obtain their flavor-packed bars which get slipped into stylish packaging. If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, the house has you covered: warm chocolate cakes, smooth chocolate mousse, cacao babka, chocolate ice cream bars in the summer… // Sophie Fonfek 

The hidden gem: A sweet, tangy and addictive Gran Nativo Peruvian chocolate made with sheep’s milk (€10 for 60 g).
