Created in 1988, Caraïbe is a wonderfully balanced chocolate with a mellow, well-rounded flavor. Thanks to its great equilibrium
Caraïbe has become L’École Valrhona’s benchmark product. Its authentically chocolatey flavor makes it a popular choice for kitchen trials. Its profile is more accessible than Guanaja’s so it is a great favorite, particularly among children. Caraïbe’s name pays homage to the diversity of the Caribbean islands, whose cocoa beans inspired its creation.
Caraïbe is a subtle blend of cocoa aromatic profiles typical of the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jamaica and Togo. These profiles are blended to obtain Caraïbe’s unique and consistent flavor, which is both balanced and roasted. This blend, impeccably produced since 1988, is a showcase for genuine prowess and skill.
Caraïbe 66% is still my favorite. It really transports me back in time to the moment I first tasted it! Of course I’ve tried plenty of others which are excellent, but I always go back to this one.
