In 2019, two brothers, one chocolate maker and the other graphic illustrator, decided to get together to found Cacao Experience - the first exclusively “bean to bar” chocolate factory in Strasbourg.
Etienne is a chocolatier. He is at the origin of the Cacao Experience project; the idea of which came to him when he was still a teenager and bewitched by the psychedelic rock of Jimi Hendrix. This hazy vision became more clear whilst working in France and abroad, giving him a broad and in-depth knowledge of the profession of chocolate maker. Along the way, the young man's intuition became a necessity: to get chocolate out of the mediocrity of the big manufacturers.
Romain is a graphic designer and illustrator, passionate about images. He discovers, through chocolate, an abundant universe rich in history, legends, travel, and politics. He invites his brother to join him in Strasbourg and convinces him to start together.
Here are our two bearded men, quickly joined by Sara to support them, embarked on an ambitious project, with an few means but a DIY spirit: the bare necessities and a few bags of good cocoa in an apartment in Strasbourg.
The ambition of Cacao Experience is simple: To develop a creative range, to be tasted with the eyes and the taste buds, for great chocolate lovers and epicureans.
