May 21st 2012 Los Angeles - Amedei Chocolate Sunflower Seeds, Amaranth Leaves, Black Mexican Vanilla, Avocado Gel, Edible Gold and Popcorn Caramel

Amedei differs from many chocolate makers because they process the cocoa themselves, controlling the fermentation (crucial to reducing the bitterness of the bean and releasing the basic aromas) and drying in the country of origin, then roasting the beans in Italy so they can control temperature and time to get the best from each type of cocoa.

Domori has a unique approach to their chocolate, selecting and roasting cocoa carefully and in small batches, processing it as little as possible, and peforming some operations by hand that others do by machine. The result is that Domori makes Italian chocolate with the unique, genuine taste and aroma of the cocoa from which it comes.
