The Porcelana cacao bean is extremely rare, and a precious plant. It is one of the most delicate cacaos in the world and often becomes prone to insects & fungi once ripe. These beans have been grown in the Andes since antiquity, and was rediscovered and grafted by Domori in the late 90’s. These are now grown in Domori’s Hacienda San José plantation in Venezuela. The name “Porcelana” comes from the appearance of the beans; they are oval shaped with a smooth surface, and have a translucent hue making them look like porcelain. This chocolate has zero acidity with great sweetness and roundness.
