Bar of the Week: Valrhona's Guanaja

Our bar of the week is Valrhona's Guanaja, the first of this major chocolate producer's line of "grand cru" chocolates.  This 70% dark chocolate is mix of criollo, trinitario, and forastero cacaos named for the island in the Bay of Honduras where the beans were farmed. Valrhona's tagline for the bar is "bittersweet and elegant"; it features a pared-down flavor profile, with floral and fruity notes anchored by a pleasant bitterness reminiscent of coffee or nuts. 

Come by and try Valrhona's Guanaja on Saturday, November 13th.
