Thanx, Alex. Better, more informative. They even given their recent blends formula.Very unexpected to see white background suddenly.
Realize now exactly what we are missing, Martin ;)

Definitly more informative, but I liked the design on the old site a lot better. The black background and “junglepictures” gave a better impression of the whole cacaocult spirit/idea. (I actually have the black/grey picture with the opportunities-quote on my desktop…)

yeah, old design was better, much more impressive. Now it’s obsolete, lucky you, who saved it to remember

It is clearer and more logical (is it what appeal to u, Alex?), but the old one was so much more artistic.. Sometimes there’s no substitute for plain facts, but sometimes i’m ready to sacrifice information for a bit of poetry…

Exactly! It’s like Porcelana del Pedregal, some of the beaty of it is the design…

well, i’d prefer the site to be informative and attractive. i didn’t like the old site that much, too dark and old-fashioned.
i’d redo the whole thing entirely ;)

no, i’m no web designer. but i could come up with some ideas i think. not that domori would be interested though ;)

but most important: they have all the info there now and it does look good.

I think the white background sort of demystifies their cacao cult in a way, by brightening up their dark picture a bit. It’s as if the old site’s lack of information was muddled by its black presentation, but now the new site is bright and sheds much more illumination on their “secrets.”

And did you notice that Quantum has expanded to include Sambirano?

Cool, cool, cool. I love Domori. Not just because they make incredible good chocolate. I’m surprised that they offer so many different products. The new Cru bars look really great. I hope I can get my hands on them as fast as possible (especially the Arriba and Apurimac bars. But the Carenero Superior and Sur del Lago Clasificado bars are great as well. Better that buying these little squares). . Now they are offering two different Kashaya. That’s unbelievable. I really cannot believe that they create so many new products in such a sort time.

Just forgot to ask this: The new Domori WebPages does not tell anything about the Hacienda San Jose Guasare and Chuao boxes. The old one mentioned them as being produced in 2006. Does anyone know anything about? I do not hope they cancelled the Guasare!!

Love Domori chocolate, and can’t stop to admire their clever marketing, which keeps us passionate about it [;)]. Well done, good for them!

It definitely pleases me to know that at least three of the Crus are available in larger format, but I would still like to see the other two (Sambirano and Rio Caribe) available in the same menner.

I’m assuming Chuao was removed from the Hacienda San Jose page due to legal matters. And as far as Porcelana and Guasare go, I’m sure they’ll be posted as soon as Domori can produce a substantial amount…or if they can, for that matter.

It’s not under Hacienda San Jose, so it must be elsewhere.
