I really enjoyed Domori’s Apurimac—as many did at our chocolate tasting a while back—and was delighted to sample another Domori, this time from Ecuador. I remember Apurimac’s melt as having a distinct smoothness—certainly a favorite among our taster friends. The Ecuador was no different. So, for now, I deem Domori tops in smoothness.
The Ecuador had a stronger tanginess than the Apurimac, more citrus. It also had notes of cream or bananas—delicious. The bar maintains Domori’s beautiful classic design, sans scoring. While the carmel and golden coloring of the Ecuador packaging is beautiful, I prefer the gaudy Gauginish craziness of the Apurimac label art. Overall, I highly recommend the Ecuador but would opt for the Apurimac if given a choice between the two.
