Dark chocolate CARUPANO 62%

Venezuela - Barlovento & Carenero


Carupano® 62% is designed for making ganache, mousse or ice cream. The dark chocolate couverture has a dense and creamy texture blending refreshing cocoa with berry notes.


Chocolaterie de l’Opéra only uses CARENERO Superior cocoa beans (a Trinitario hybrid). Its signature fruity, spicy and nutty aromas are complex and highly sought-after. It is grown mainly in Barlovento but is unfortunately even rarer.
