Story

Cacao was first introduced to Trinidad in the 16th century by the Spanish. Two hundred years later, the island became a refuge for cacao breeds when disease and plague devastated plantations in Central and South America. The introduced varieties were interbred to produce a strain presenting the sturdiness of Amazon varieties and the delicate character of the Criollos: the Trinitario.

These cacao beans are harvested by small farmers in the area of Tabaquite Village. The beans are centrally fermented, dried and bagged at the Tabaquite Fermentary. The operation is owned and operated by Mr. Harryman Chattergoon and his family since 2002.
