Guittard is also a California chocolate, Callisto.
Comparing those two brands, definitely I prefer Guittard except for Ghirardelli's ground sweet chocolate. Guittard's chocolates come in a wide range of cocoa percentages, and the pastilles are very easy to use when melting chocolate. For my taste buds, there is really no comparison between the two. Guittard is geared much more for the professional kitchen than the home, tho.
