Written by: Georg Bernardini

Rio Caribe is one of my favourite cocoa bean from Venezuela. there is a wide range of chocolates made with this beans in the market.
The version of Domori is almost a masterpiece in my eyes.

Intense, complex and richly varied. Dried fruits, plum, red berries, raisin and lightly tobacco.

As always you can trust in the perfect finish of a Domori chocolate. deep mahagony brown, no bubbles and perfect shine. very nice and clean snap.

Full body taste with a great development of all the aromas. Perfect balance of sugar and cocoa. Pleasant sweetness with great character of the Rio Caribe cocoa. As Domori add no cocoa butter the chocolate is not too fat and very digestible.

Slow and smooth melt, not at all sticky or greasy. The lenght is great.

With this chocolate Domori mark a benchmark for chocolate made with beans from Rio Caribe. The chocolate united all the best from what you expect from a high (world) class chocolate. It worth any penny of the price.
