Chocolate oh chocolate, many odes have been sung about the sweet seduction and this is another one about a certain kind of chocolate, produced by a chocolate expert in Berlin. Holger in’t Veld will be known to many who’ve been looking for high quality chocolate in Berlin in the past years. After closing his highly popular chocolate store in 2010, he’s now returned with a brand new chocolate called Bonvodou, that’s just too good to be true.
Erich Hamann Bittere Schokoladen Berlin was founded in 1912 by, you guessed it, Erich Hamann, a confectioner who came from the Memel Territory in East Prussia. The first retail store and production facility was located in Kurfürstenstraße, just next to several girl’s boarding schools, whose residents expressed their need for dark (bitter) chocolates with less sugar; Erich Hamann happily complied, making this the main focus of his young company.
