Best store-bought cocoa powder

I am coming in a year later here, but... I encourage those of you who say they love Valrhona cocoa powder to try a blind taste test. To me Valrhona doesn't just taste burnt, as somebody noted above -- it tastes like burned vegetables dried and then ground into a powder. I am starting to think that the Valrhona brand, at least on the evidence of the cocoa powder, is a very naked emperor.
