Factory Store Local Chocolatier Barlovento Chocolatesfounded in 2008 by Peter Brydon, a chocolatier who has been a mentor to a lot of other local chocolatiers. They make truffles, caramels, bars, barks, toffee, hot chocolate mix, molded chocolates, and other confections from Venezuelan cacao harvested in a sub-region called Barlovento.

Barlovento’s kitchen is open weekday afternoons for sales. You can find their bars in some shops around the area. Check their website for more information.
