Venezuela Dark Chocolate Bar 70%
The world capital of high quality cocoa. This variety of Trinitario holds a supreme chocolate aftertaste, placed among hints of fruit and nuts.
We are in Venezuela, the world capital of high quality cacao. Here, too, hybridization has taken place over the centuries, but the aromatic profile of Venezuelan cacao leaves no room for doubt: here, among the notes of fruit and nuts, the aftertaste of chocolate reigns supreme. Here, every valley from Chuao to Cuyagua has its own reputation and heritage, in a genetic labyrinth strongly marked by Criollo. The deserts and spectacular dunes in the Falcon area, the great lakes and the peaks of the Andes forge an unequalled aromatic complexity. In these lands, in the state of Sucre, in 2000 Domori set up a partnership with the historic Franceschi family from the Hacienda San Josè, which has been working in the territory since 1830. This collaboration allowed us to select the hybrids that make up Sur del Lago cacao, from the plantations surrounding Lake Maracaibo.
Type of cultivation:
Trinitario hybrid with a strong presence of Criollo.
Trinitario cacao is an aromatic cacao. It represents around 8% of the global harvest. Trinitario is a hybrid of Criollo and Forastero cacao, combining some of the aromatic and sensory features of the former with the vigor and high yields of the latter.
Domori has recovered this precious variety of cocoa, which it collects from the plantations located between Latin America and Africa: in Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Madagascar and Tanzania.
The Trinitario cocoa beans are then transformed every day through the shortest and purest recipe in the world.

Venezuelan states of Merida, Trujillo, Tachira and Zulia, south of Lake Maracaibo
