Guittard Vintage Chocolate Company, located in the Bay Area like Ghirardelli, but I like Guittard much better than Ghirardelli. They seem to market primarily to gourmet chefs, and recently are in Whole Foods. I love the Coucher du Soleil 72% extra bittersweet wafers. Their 92% is an amazing flavor sensation, different chocolate varieties blended so the tastes flutter in my mouth, where all other brands I've tasted have a single intense chocolate flavor.

Chocosphere.com is a great site for ordering chocolates from around the world, including Guittard
