A remarkably bitter chocolate introduced two years after Guanaja in 1988, Caraïbe was an exceptionally well-balanced addition to the Mariages de Grands Crus collection of chocolates with truly enticing body and sweetness. Caraïbe and Guanaja are prime examples of how rich and complementary chocolate blends can be, which is why people often talk about Caraïbe as a "feminine" chocolate and say Guanaja has a more "masculine" profile.
