Product Information
valrhona.com komuntu

Born from an original creation process, Komuntu 80% embodies the strength of collective work. It is the result of the involvement of the entire Valrhona value chain: cocoa partners, suppliers, employees and customers, all of whom have contributed to creating Komuntu 80%, the embodiment of 100 years of commitment.

KOMUNTU is a contraction of “Komunumo”, which means “community” in Esperanto, and “Ubuntu”, an African concept that means “I am because we are”. Such is the link which unites these 100 people.

A unique aromatic profile

Komuntu 80% alone embodies all the expertise of Valrhona’s cocoa sourcers and blending expertise. Made from a complex blend of cocoa beans sourced from all over the world, its aromatic profile strikes a true balance between powerful cocoa and harmonious flavors, complementing the existing range of Valrhona couvertures perfectly.

Because our whole supply chain has helped create its flavor, it tells the story of all the people we have met around the world. 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.

A responsible chocolate

Because Komuntu is the physical embodiment of our commitment to a fair, sustainable chocolate sector and creative, responsible gastronomy, during our 100th anniversary year we are redistributing all the profits made to cocoa producers. 

History 

To celebrate together our 100th anniversary, we have created with you Komuntu. Suppliers, cocoa partners, employees, customers, you were all involved in every step of the way: from finding a unique taste to choosing a packaging design with symbolic patterns which reflects the diversity of our different cocoa-producing countries. All stakeholders of the ethical chocolate world, we embody Komuntu. Its name is a contraction of “Komunumo” which means community in Esperanto and “Ubuntu” an African concept which states “I am, because we are”. Komuntu is a chocolate created with you, for you.

The whole supply chain has helped create Komuntu’s flavor. It tells the story of all the people we have met around the world.  Thus, the blend of its cocoas has a singular aromatic character. Because Komuntu is the physical embodiment of our commitment to a fair, sustainable chocolate sector and creative, responsible gastronomy, during our 100th anniversary year we are redistributing all the profits made to cocoa producers.

Anyone who loves intense chocolate will appreciate Komuntu in pastries or chocolates. Its woody character with hints of toasted cocoa nibs works as well with nuts as it does  with tangy or sweet berries.
