Single Origin Otucan 69% comes from Otucan cacao in Venezuela and features hints of green banana, hazelnut and floral notes. Valrhona says the Otucan couverture pairs well with fruits, nuts, honey flavours and peppery spices.

Valrhona has also re-introduced the Araguani 72%. Also from Venezuela, this chocolate hints at licorice, raisin and chestnut flavours combined with the sweetness of honey, the company said in a press release.

Although both chocolates a created from pure Venezuelan beans, the flavour profiles vary due to their distinctive climate. Both are available in three-kilogram bags.
