VALRHONA Bahibe 46%, Milk Chocolate Couverture

Valrhona

$24.00

This rich Valrhona milk chocolate's high cocoa content perfectly balances the smoothness of the milk before revealing a fruity tanginess and slight bitterness.

With its amazingly high cocoa content for a milk chocolate (46%), Bahibé is inspired by a couverture developed by Valrhona at the request of one its customers in San Francisco. Bahibé provides the perfect balance between the bitterness of pure Dominican cocoa and the sweetness of milk. The name Bahibé is a homage to the Bayahibe rose, thecactus flour which emblematizes the Dominican Republic.

With its local partner, Valrhona has selected the Dominican Republic’s finest beans to create a rare chocolate variety. Our partner is a participant in Cacao Forest, a multi-stakeholder project which numbers Valrhona among its members, alongside producers, scientists, artisan chocolatiers and private companies who are all seeking to identify sustainable models. The idea is to shape the future of cocoa cultivation through agroforestry, a technique which advocates growing cacao among other trees. We combine environmental protection and good living conditions for employees with a demand for high quality and a broad aromatic palette.

Bahibé combines ripe fruity notes with a powerful hint of cocoa to evoke all the power of the Dominican Republic’s waterfalls and lush plantlife.

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.
