Dark chocolate SAMANA 62%

Dominican Republic - San Francisco de Macoris


The 62% version of Samana 70% dark chocolate has the same aromatic notes (spicy and berry) but its lower cocoa butter content makes it ideal for making ganache and mousse.


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.
