Criollo is the most prized variety of cacao, and was at risk of extinction: it is the cacao of the Mayas and the Aztecs, whose cultivation has been progressively abandoned due to its low yield. It's rare and fragile cacao and represents only 0.001% of the cocoa produced in the world.
The quality of this cacao is unmatched: naturally free of tannins, the Criollo boats a creaminess, roundedness, and sweetness that are unique in the world. With the Criollo Project, founded in 1994 thanks to Gianluca Franzoni, Domori has recovered this precious variety of cacao, setting up the Hacienda San José, the largest Criollo plantation in the world, in Venezuela.
