We chose Sur del Lago, a Venezuelan region known for being home to a rich soil that lends Araguani all its aromatic complexity. The name Araguani is a reference to the Araguaney, an iconic Venezuelan tree, but also to the Guarani, one of the country’s indigenous peoples.
Valrhona shares a rich history with Venezuela. It all began in the 1990s with a commitment to rehabilitate the country’s ancient cocoa varieties – Porcelana, for example – and thereby ensure their survival. To this day we remain dedicated to our Venezuelan partner so that we can preserve the genetic diversity of this region’s cocoa plants, which make Araguani so special.
In Venezuela, every village has its own cocoa which is its heritage and its pride. Araguani is a homage to all those enthusiasts who, for centuries, have selected their cocoa trees so that they can obtain “el mejor cacao del mundo”.
