Single Origins Chocolate Bar - Tanzania 70%
Our Trinitario cocoa is grown in Tanzania from the cooperative Kokoa Kamili. They are committed to enhance the quality of chocolate in their country.
The cacao that Domori selects in Tanzania comes from the Kokoa Kamili cooperative, which was set up with the aim of improving the organoleptic quality of Tanzanian cocoa. Kokoa Kamili buys "wet" cocoa directly from the local growers, in the cabossa, paying them more than what they would earn if they sold the cacao already fermented anddried. This means that the farmers are paid more, sooner and with less work. The time and effort spent on fermenting and drying the beans can therefore be spent improving the quality of the farming methods. After it is bought, the cocoa is fermented in the Kokoa Kamili fermentation centres, where its quality and processing can be constantly monitored. Fermentation takes place in wooden boxes covered with banana leaves, using a cascade system, for a period of 6 days.
After fermentation, the beans are transported to the drying tables where they rest in the sun for 5/7 days.
Type of cultivation:
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.

Kilombero Valley in the Morogoro region. About ten hours' drive from the main town of Dar es Salaam, the operations are based in the village of Mbingu on the border with the beautiful Udzungwa Mountain National Park.
