Story & Recommendation
Benciny is a craft chocolate shop selling only handmade chocolate with a cacao percentage of over 70%
You can find the craft chocolate shop Benciny close to Heian Shrine, in a place just a stone throw away from Okazaki Canal which is famous as a place to see the cherry blossoms in spring. They buy their cacao beans from Vietnam, Peru, and Columbia, among other countries, and their chocolate is completely made by hand, from start to finish, from the roasting of the beans to wrapping of the finished product. Because this takes a lot of time, the shop is only open for three days a week. Different beans and different recipes make different chocolate have different levels of sourness, bitterness, and sweetness. All of the chocolate made by Benciny contains at least 70 % of cocoa, so you can taste the real taste of the cocoa beans in their chocolate. The kinds of chocolate they have on sale change daily, and at most they have seven types on sale in one day. It’s always exciting to go see what kinds of chocolate they’re selling just today. The taste can be habit-forming!
