    Pures Plantations®

Dark chocolate CARUPANO 70%

Venezuela - Barlovento & Carenero


Carupano® 70% captures our expertise and was the first chocolate in the Pures Plantations range. It strikes the perfect balance between roasted cocoa and dried fruit aromas underpinned by woody almond 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.
