The Chuao, an ancient variety of Criollo cocoa, takes its name from the plantations and in particular from the Venezuelan peninsula where it was found. The cocoa beans of this particular variety are completely white and give chocolate an incredible, all natural, sweetness and roundness.
Criollo is a rare and fragile cocoa variety and represents only 0.01% of the cocoa produced in the world. The quality of this cocoa is unmatched as it lacks tannins, which give roughness and astringency to the product. The Criollo boasts a creaminess, roundness and sweetness unique in the world.
Domori has recovered this precious variety of cocoa that risked extinction, creating the largest plantation in the world in Venezuela. From this we receive the raw material that we transform every day through the shortest and purest recipe in the world.
Domori chocolate produced using Chuao cocoa has been awarded on numerous occasions: in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2021 winning the prestigious Tavoletta d'Oro award in the "Origins" category, awarded according to specifications created by "La Compagnia del Cioccolato", made up of more than 1000 members of great importance in the food scene: culinary journalists, Chefs, professional tasters.
In 2016 it was included by the renowned and well-known critic and chocolate taster, Georg Bernardini, in his book "Chocolate - the reference standard" as one of the best chocolates in the world, with a score of 98.05/100, approaching perfection.

Most round and characterful taste
To me it rather has a very slight peppermint taste paired with sweetness and a bit acidity. Very strong but still mild.
For me Chuao is the best Criollo ever. Guasare and Porcelana come close but this has more strength and finesse. I would really like to have it also as a 90% cocoa version.
