Alain Ducasse’s bean-to-bar factory (the first of its kind in Paris) and boutique is tucked in a cobblestoned courtyard just off Place de la Bastille. The renovated garage is decorated with vintage machinery, sacks of cocoa beans, and a glass and steel display case that was scavenged from the Banque de France and now shows off rows of beautiful bonbons. In the actual factory, which is visible from the retail space through an enormous glass wall, cocoa beans from Peru to Papua New Guinea are transformed into a variety of bars, bouchées, pralines and truffles. Packaged in industrial chic brown paper with Ducasse’s stamped logo, the bars range from 65% – 100% cocoa. Not to be missed are the peanut dusted dark chocolate dragées, Ducasse’s haute homage to the peanut M&M.
