The owners have tried to keep the décor of Maison Marou clean, neat and minimal as much as they can. An antique bean grinder stands right in the entrance, making a proud statement about what this café and Chocolate Marou represent: the love and the passion about making delicious and original chocolate. Visitors will be offered a free tour of the café where they can discover the process of melting and mixing, quality control and hand wrapping to create a perfect product of Chocolate Marou and Maison Marou. All these things are carried out behind a giant glass panel, allowing guests to enjoy a sip of coffee or hot chocolate, at the same time to observe how their orders are freshly prepared.
