Hint of Raw Cocoa
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 flavor redolent of bitterness and woody intensity.
This chocolate is less sweet than any other in the range. It has a characteristic intensity and strength.
