Domori Beans to Bars Chocolate From Italy

The Criollo cocoa represents only 0.001% of all the cocoa harvested in the world.
It is absolutely the most naturally round of cocoa varieties, and Gianluca Franzoni was capable of recovering it by believing in its fineness and, first and foremost, in the possibility of growing it in spite of its notorious low yield, of its weakness and its low resistance to diseases. The delicate conditions of this cocoa variety are due to its pureness. As the Criollo has never been mixed, it has suffered less modifications throughout the years. This has caused a strong genetic erosion and sensitivity to the elements, which require patient recovery and care. A delicate plant with precious aromatic qualities: notes of dried fruit, a fragrance of bread, jam and cream. Its fruit is characterised by an extremely low content of anthocyanin pigments, which means it is devoid of astringent notes.

DOMORI has been a pioneer in cacao culture for a very long time now.   Guanluca Franzoni essentially  fell in love with the beauty, wildness of cacao produced on this remote peninsula in North Eastern Venezuela.  In particular his gaze fell upon Criollo Beans.  Criollo cocoa represents a teeny tiny percentage, only about  0.001% of all the cocoa harvested in the world.
