VALRHONA Caraibe 66%, Dark Chocolate Couverture
Balanced and Roasted -- Caraibe 66% is made of the finest cocoa beans from small plantations in the Caribbean islands. Aromatic with a long finish, its fruity and barely sweet taste reveals the delicate flavors of almonds and coffee with an oaky finish.
A remarkably bitter chocolate introduced two years after Guanaja in 1988, Caraïbe was an exceptionally well-balanced addition to the Mariages de Grands Crus collection of chocolates with truly enticing body and sweetness. Caraïbe and Guanaja are prime examples of how rich and complementary chocolate blends can be, which is why people often talk about Caraïbe as a "feminine" chocolate and say Guanaja has a more "masculine" profile.

Please note: We refrain from shipping chocolate during summer months when the temperature is relatively warm. This is in anticipation that the chocolate will not melt during the shipping process. At above 26°C, cocoa butter in chocolate products may start melting, and recrystallize as white streaks or marks on the chocolate's surface. This phenomenon is called 'fat bloom'. While it may not have the perfect appearance, bloomed chocolates are safe to eat and use in recipes.
