“I AM ONLY A HUMBLE SERVANT TO CHOCOLATE, AND MY TRUE MISSION IS TO HELP CHANGE THE HISTORY OF FINE CACAO.” Gianluca Franzoni
A PASSION SO GREAT
THAT IT TRANSFORMS EXPLORATION INTO DISCOVERY AND RESEARCH INTO KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING. IMAGINE THIS PASSION GUIDING US TO SELECT
A SUBSTANCE SO PRECIOUS
THAT, ONCE MOULDED, IT WILL INSPIRE YOU WITH
THE SENSATIONS THAT ONLY ART CAN CREATE.
THAT SUBSTANCE IS CACAO,
THE ARTIST IS GIANLUCA FRANZONI, AND HIS WORK IS DOMORI CHOCOLATE.
Our Philosophy is based on the search for quality
What is apparently a simple way of making chocolate is actually a journey marked by passion for the search for perfect flavours, a symbol of absolute quality. We have explored the most remote corners of the planet. In Venezuela we found our travel companion, the world’s rarest fine cocoa, corresponding to only 0.001% of all the cocoa on the planet: the Criollo.
In 2002, Domori invested in the Hacienda San José, bringing back six varieties of Criollo cacao to the palate and creating a universal heritage that is unique in its biodiversity.
We have chosen the Criollo because it is purer and because we cultivate its precious and very delicate plants with intense passion.
We grow them with care and we work their fruits with procedures that focus on protecting the natural flavour of cocoa beans, to result in unique tastes and unforgettable sensations.
Every day at Domori’s facilities in None, Turin, the beans are processed using innovative and sustainable machinery, technology and production methods. For example, the fundamental roasting stage, which is performed at low temperatures to bring out the extraordinary aromatic notes of fine cacaos without losing their organoleptic features.
To allow all cocoa lovers to get to know, enjoy and recognise this precious fine cocoa, we were the first to identify the typical characteristics of an excellent chocolate. Aroma, roundness, pureness and persistence are the foundations, as are terms of comparison, which have allowed us to rediscover and recover only the best crops.
The emotions donated by a Domori plain chocolate are no less intense than those we experience when tasting a precious wine or an excellent espresso coffee.
This is why it is important to be able to recognise them. To make this possible, Domori has drawn up a tasting guide, a magnificent map that will guide your senses through the discovery of pure chocolate essence and sublimate its experience.
Domori dark chocolate is composed of only fine cacao paste and cane sugar, inspiring a unique emotion. Domori has drawn up the first tasting code, a magnificent sensory map that invites you to discover the pure essence of chocolate, making a simple experience sublime.
INNOVATION AND EXCELLENCE IN THE WORLD OF CHOCOLATE
Being the first makes us unique, and uniqueness leads to excellence. This is why Domori chocolate is a truly extraordinary experience, a unique and unrivalled “story” for the senses.
A story made of innovations that mark authentic revolutions.
- Domori was the first company in the world to use exclusively fine cacao.
- The first to produce a chocolate from Criollo cacao.
- The first to recover the biodiversity of Criollo cacao in the eld.
- The first to create a 100% cocoa bar.
- The first to re-use an ancient and simple formula using only cocoa paste and sugar, without butter, vanilla or lecithin.
- The first to create a Chocolate Tasting Code for discovering the in finite nuances of cocoa.
A chance to taste the aromas of the plantation where the magic of chocolate is born. Extraordinarily aromatic and persistent, these aromas sing of the origin of the unequalled refinement of Domori chocolate. Whole, roasted and winnowed cocoa beans, to be enjoyed slowly, one by one. Or if you prefer, whole or chopped beans cloaked in a layer of dark chocolate. The result of an extraordinary, precise process: fermentation, drying and roasting designed to create the optimal sensory profile.
FOR LOVERS OF ALL THE NUANCES OF MILK CHOCOLATE, DOMORI HAS CREATED A LINE IN WHICH CACAO BLENDS WITH FOUR UNUSUAL TYPES OF MILK. THE WELL-DEFINED CHARACTER OF EACH, TOGETHER WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY AROMAS, CREATES INFINITE PLEASURE FOR THE PALATE.
THE ELEGANCE OF THE NOBLEST CACAO IN A GIFT TO DISCOVER AND ENJOY.
