To celebrate their 100th anniversary, Valrhona have created Komuntu 80% for you.
“Our cocoa-producing partners, suppliers, co-workers and customers, each helped to make this dark chocolate, which symbolizes all the work done over 100 years to make the world a better place.”
Its name evokes the strong link that binds our collective together, giving a sound and a rhythm to the meaning behind our work. Komuntu is a combination of “Komunumo”, which means “community” in Esperanto, and “Ubuntu”, an African word encapsulating the idea that “I am because we are”.
A RESPONSIBLE COUVERTURE CHOCOLATE
Because Komuntu is the physical embodiment of Valrhona’s commitment to a fair, sustainable chocolate sector and creative, responsible gastronomy, during our 100th anniversary year they will redistribute profits made to cocoa producers.
Komuntu 80% alone embodies all the expertise of Valrhona’s cocoa sourcers and its blending expertise.
Made from a complex blend of cocoa beans sourced from the four corners of the world, this couverture chocolate represents the special bonds that Valrhona maintains with its 15 cocoa- producing partners. This unique chocolate is the result of a long process which blends beans from different origins, an area of expertise truly unique to Valrhona. Its aromatic profile strikes a true balance between powerful cocoa and harmonious flavors, complementing the existing range of Valrhona couvertures perfectly.
The result is a chocolate with a high cocoa percentage of 80% whose aromatic profile reveals a powerful woody and bitter taste on the palate, supported by notes of roasted cocoa nibs.
