Dark chocolate SAMANA 70%

Dominican Republic - San Francisco de Macoris


Fruity and full-bodied Samana 70% comes from an outstanding terroir. The variety of flavours brings intense spicy notes together with ripe cherries and dried figs. A wide range of flavour combinations. 


Unlike major producers, the Dominican Republic has managed to hold onto its plantations' genetic roots. Since its marine soil, fewer chemical products are used meaning its cocoa production is among the purest in the world. An exceptional cocoa bean from the Trinitario plant and “Hispañola Superior” type grabbed the attention of Chocolaterie de l’Opéra.
