Maker

Domori

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

Zulia, Venezuela

Zulia is the westernmost state in Venezuela, and besides containing one of the largest oil and gas reserves in the Western Hemisphere, Zulia includes the famous cacao-growing region of Maracaibo, which happens to be the state capital. Although Zulia is economically important to Venezuela due to its oil and mineral exploitation, it’s also one of the major agricultural regions of Venezuela, and contains historically-relevant trading ports.

Cacao Strain

Sur De Lago

Sur Del Lago is unusual in that it’s more of a cacao origin type than a cacao strain. Over the centuries, the type “Sur Del Lago”— which translates as “south of the lake”— has evolved as a micro-origin within Venezuela, referring most often to cacao from the region southwest of Lake Maracaibo, near the border with Colombia. The blend of different criollo-influenced native varietals that grow there have been isolated enough that they’ve come to be one of the most highly-prized Venezuelan origins out there. True Sur Del Lago cacao has a high proportion of white beans (indicative of its criollo heritage), and a very nutty character with high potential for complexity.
