Product Information

In Venezuela, the unique flavor of ARAGUANI comes from a prime example of rich land-sea soils found where the plantations in the Andean foothills meet the sea swept coastline of the Caribbean. Starting in the 1990s, Valrhona set out to protect and foster the diversity of Venezuelan cacaos through efforts like acquiring the El Pedregal plantation in 1992 to save an endangered cacao variety called Porcelana. ARAGUANI is the product of Valrhona's efforts to restore and blend ancient bean varieties originating from many different locales in the country's highly acclaimed northwestern growing region.
