THE CHOCOLATE PRINCE: Claudio Corallo, the man who makes the best chocolate in the world.

Roaming the Atlantic on the imaginary line of the Equator, there are two small islands where the exoticism of the absolute green combines with the perfect taste of cocoa and coffee.

UP – TAP, inflight Magazine, Patricia Brito, 2015 | PORTOGAL

I'm almost mad. And I really should be! Mad for having waited all the years to get to my age  before knowing the real taste of chocolate. This for me, is the proper taste bud rebith. I have to add that the perpetrator is a Florentine; his people aren't exactly first offenders in matters of Renaissance. Claudio Corallo has however, left Tuscany of his birth many years ago, to dedicate himself first to growing coffee, in Zaire, and now cocoa beans in Sao Tome.
