Why we love Guanaja:
In 1986, Valrhona created the world's bitterest chocolate using 70% cocoa. This heightened cocoa content required a complete rethink of how things were done.
This is when we started to select cocoas with absolute precision, because with such a low proportion of sugar there was nothing to mask imperfections.
Guanaja immediately revolutionized the market and became a benchmark product.
Its name, Guanaja, is a nod to the first cocoa beans given to Christopher Columbus when he washed up on the Caribbean island of Guanaja on July 30, 1502.
