VALRHONA Guanaja 70%, Dark Chocolate Couverture



Bittersweet and Elegant -- Valrhona's Guanaja 70% develops extraordinary bitterness in this masterful blend of grand cru cocoa which reveals a whole aromatic and complex range of fruit, coffee, molasses and floral notes.

In 1986, Valrhona created Guanaja in a quest to capture the original taste of cacao beans. The first chocolate in the world to reach 70% cocoa. It was considered so bitter when it came out that it is cut into small squares and packaged in a metal box. It has become a great classic among dark couverture chocolates. Guanaja kicked off the Valrhona 'Mariages de Grands Crus' collection and over the years has become Valrhona's legendary chocolate and showpiece for its mastery and expertise. As definitive proof of Valrhona's commitment to taste, Guanaja is a favorite among top chefs and artisans around the world and its unmatched flavor profile has always delighted even the most discerning palates.

Summer Shipping: 

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.

During summer months when the temperature is relatively warm, we advise adding cold packaging to your shipment in order to minimize the risk of melting.  While we are careful and diligent in maintaining the temperature of your package, we unfortunately cannot guarantee the products in the cold packaging will not be affected by unusually warm weather and irregular transit time.

Amazing chocolate!

It's my first time buying Vahlrona chocolate and I don't regret the purchase! The dark chocolate flavour is slightly warm and bitter, but compliments the sweetness of the cake I made!

Susan A.
Great flavour!

Perfect for the dark chocolate mousse cake I made for my Book Club ladies. We all love chocolate and the cake was a big hit!


Not as chocolatey as I expected and a little bitter but made a fine thin cover and seal to a praline feuillettine ganache bar. Probably mis-used it therein.

Great dark chocolate. Amazingly fast delivery.

Carmen Liao
Yummy dark chocolate!

We made chocolate lava cake with this products. The perfect amount of bitterness made the best lava cake! Would definitely try more of other chocolates from Valrhona!
