Valrhona

A high cocoa content and a skilful blend of the finest cocoa beans from Africa make Abinao 85% a "Marriage of Grands Crus" characterized by powerful tannins with a strong, lingering intensity.

Launched in 2006, Abinao pushes the boundaries of bitterness a little further, with a cocoa content of 85%. As with the revolutionary Guanaja, Valrhona wishes to offer those who enjoy bitter chocolate a unique sensory experience underpinned by the strength of tannins and the taste of raw cocoa beans. This way, Valrhona reinforces the importance of selecting excellent cocoa where it is grown. With so little added sugar, the cocoa used must be flawlessly pure.

Abinao is a complex blend of aromatic African cocoas. These profiles are blended until they have Abinao’s singular, consistent flavour redolent of bitterness and woody intensity.

    **********

    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.
