Origin

Brazil is one of the oldest cocoa producing countries. Valrhona has maintained a close partnership with Mr. Libânio since2009. Located in one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, the Mata Atlantica (an official UNESCO “Biosphere Reserve”), the Libânio company is driven by a philosophy that advocates for harmony between people, soils and plants in a sustainable environment. As these values are fundamental to Valrhona, it felt natural to develop the new Hukambi 53% couverture.

Hukambi is a chocolate that combines all the indulgence and pleasure of rounded cocoa notes. The intense cocoa and milk aspects to its character mean it can be used to create very flavorsome desserts and interesting blends of different notes.
