Criollo Porcelana is the rarest and most valuable variety of Criollo cocoa as the plant is extremely delicate.

Criollo is a rare and fragile variety of cocoa and represents only 0.001% of the cocoa produced in the world. The quality of this cocoa has no equal as it is devoid of tannins, which give the product roughness and astringency. In fact, Criollo boasts a creaminess, roundness and sweetness that are unique in the world.

The name of this particular variety of Criollo cocoa derives from the shape of the fruit: oval, with a completely smooth and translucent surface, reminiscent of the appearance of porcelain.

Ingredients: Cocoa mass, sugar cane. May contain traces of nuts, milk and soy.

Domori is a gourmet Italian chocolate maker that focuses on making bars with low production process. They use a low roast profile and medium conch (the stage in which chocolate gets its characteristic taste and mouthfeel from cacao beans) to preserve and maintain the aromas and flavors of the fine cacao beans they feature in their bars. Founded by Gianluca Franzoni in 1997, they are considered one of Europe's finest chocolate makers. Franzoni traveled to Venezuela to help develop a business model to reposition cacao but was ultimately fascinated by cacao itself. He experimented with different varieties to help preserve Venezuela’s biodiversity and even helped prevent the extinction of the Criollo beans. Domori is the first company to use the fine Criollo variety, which is considered the rarest and most prized cacao bean in the world. Their signature 100% Trinitario and unique 70% Criollo strains are an achievement that elevates cacao to a whole new level. The name ‘Domori’ comes from ‘Due Mori’ in Venetian which refers to objects of dark color. Franzoni wanted a name to portray his expressive chocolate company. Venice is considered the land of trades of spices and ideas, and its ‘Due Mori’ representing two bronze statues in the famous Piazza San Marco. Also to Franzoni, the term ‘Due Mori’ is represents two dark beans: cacao and coffee.

Cacao Region

Sucre, Venezuela

Sucre is a relatively small province on the Venezuelan coast, best known for its beautiful beaches and the popular Mochima National Park. The economy of the state is based on fishing, with Sucre currently poised as the main producer of fish in the country. Somewhat inland you’ll find a small number of plantations dedicated to the commercial production of crops for export, including cacao.

Cacao Estate

Hacienda San José

Hacienda San José, owned & operated by the Franceschi family, is a 170-hectare estate on the Venezuelan coast. The farm is located on the Paria peninsula, in the northeastern part of the country, famous for being the first land in the Americas to be explored by Christopher Columbus on his third trip to the continent, in 1498. Over the years, the estate has become an important center for the recovery of genetic diversity in Venezuela’s native criollo cacao strains, including those from other parts of the country. Divided into 16 distinct parcels, the estate’s many criollo cacao strains are all carefully shaded by banana trees, which later often serve a second purpose during the fermentation process.

Cacao Strain


Porcelana; the name is Spanish for “porcelain,” a reference to the stark white color of the seeds borne in their small, pale green pods. Porcelana is one of the cultivars of the the Criollo group. Porcelana is perhaps one of the best-known ultra-rare cacao varietals, only grown in a small region of Venezuela and Colombia. It’s become one of the most prized and expensive cacaos in the world thanks to its near complete lack of bitterness and delicate chocolaty flavor.

Aaron M.
One of the best bars period

Porcelana is considered one of the best chocolate beans that can be bought, so I thought it would be fun to put 10 Porcelana bars against against each other … and the Domori bar tied for the best (with L’Amourette). This bar was phenomenal, such complex and delicious taste with a nice smoothness. I’ve also had Domori’s Chuao bar and also was amazing. Big fan of anything Domori!

Happy i.T.
Happy in TN sort of

Ok I rave about everything on this site that I buy but this was my second not five star rating and the other was this same brand. The complex tannins tasted more acid than I prefer and the mouthfeel reminded me of slightly stale chocolate.. Maybe it's just me but I didn't experience the smoothness the others described. That said it's out of the league of grocery store bars by far and if you like 80% or higher this will probably be perfect for you. 72% is my sweet spot and this didn't perform the way other bars in this range from this site did at least for my taste buds. That said i'm comparing it to my all time fav's. I don't really think any bar from this site can disappoint.

Really the best

No need to buy any other, this is the best in the business.

Best dark chocolate in existence.

We very much enjoy food, and have made quite a study of dark chocolate from around the world. There are several very good brands, including Pralus and Bonnat, but this particular bar is the most delicious, rich, smooth and creamy, dark chocolate in the bunch.
