  • Valrhona Manjari Dark Semi-Sweet Couverture 64%


Valrhona Grand Cru Manjari 64%

16 oz bag - France

Valrhona Manjari chocolate is an extraordinary bittersweet couverture chocolate made from a blend of the best Trinitarios cocoa beans from Madagascar. With a 64% cocoa content, Valrhona's Manjari is perfect for the bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, fit for home pastry chefs and professionals alike. This Madagascar dark chocolate is the perfect compromise between the ultra dark bittersweet chocolate couvertures with 70% cocoa content and the (often too sweet) dark chocolate couvertures with less than 60% cocoa content. 

Valrhona Manjari chocolate has a higher-than-typical amount of cocoa butter to give your desserts and truffles a silky finish, and make your favorite drinking chocolate oh so rich! With the sweetness of the tropics, Valrhona Manjari chocolate has an intense taste, sustained fullness, and then hints of dried fruit and grilled almonds with a woody base. It is suitable for pastry, chocolate fillings, molding, enrobing, and icing. The Valrhona "feves" are small oval disks that are easier to work with than large industrial size block.

Started in 1924 when a pastry chef from Tournon created a chocolate factory, which eventually achieved a worldwide recognition. In 1984, it became the first to offer a chocolate with 70% cocoa. Valrhona in Tain l'Hermitage is considered by most pastry chefs and chocolatiers as the premier chocolate company in the world. Their focus is solely on their chocolate, and to ensure the highest quality and optimum flavor, they grow their own cocoa beans, their own cane sugar, and their own vanilla on plantations all around the world. Now that's quality control.
Valrhona has finally begun to offer its professional products, cocoa and couvertures, packaged for the home pastry enthusiast, a palette of subtle flavors, to create and elaborate delicious chocolate preparations.

Manjari is a couverture with 64% cocoa content (with 35% Sugar and 40.5% cocoa butter). This Madagascar dark chocolate is a blend of Criollo and Trinitario cocoa beans. It has a characteristic fresh, slightly acidic chocolate taste. With intense hints of red fruits, and it would be perfect in most pastry applications calling for bittersweet couverture. This Madagascar dark chocolate is especially good for fillings, for pouring, dipping, and molding. You cannot go wrong here.

Ingredients: cocoa beans from Madagascar, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla extract.
