Maribel Lieberman is the founder of MarieBelle New York, and to this day, its most inspired doyenne. From her first chocolate shop in Soho, Maribel’s passion for discovering and sharing new flavors, has seen her continually reinvent how we enjoy chocolate. Lieberman lives in Soho in New York City with her husband, artist Jacques Lieberman and their daughter.
MarieBelle's chooses only the finest selection of Criollo cacao beans from all over the world. What the fine Arabica bean is to coffee, the even finer and rarer Criollo bean is to chocolate. Criollo cacao makes up less than 10% of worldwide chocolate production, and as such, is highly sought after by connoisseurs. Chocolate made from Criollo beans has a distinct reddish color, and an equally distinctive complex taste, which can include flavors of caramel, nuts, vanilla and tobacco.
