IT STARTS WITH THE TREE
The best chocolate starts with the tree, its soil, and climate. Much like wine, environmental factors influence the flavor of the cacao fruit, which is perfect for our chocolate. Trinitario is native to Trinidad and is perfectly suited to her climate and soil. Sourcing exceptional organic cocoa beans is the key to our exquisitely crafted chocolates. Thus, the process begins with the tree – at the farmers’ cocoa estates.
Our tight-knit relationships with our farmers have facilitated the sharing of expertise and knowledge. We have also conducted training workshops for farmers, which have positively impacted the local cocoa industry. Our interactive workshops are designed to give farmers practical techniques they can use to improve their harvest and revenue, while remaining sustainable and organic..
Our dedication to sourcing has important inherent benefits, which have allowed us to create a decadent organic product just for you. We do all this while operating under environmental and ethical practices with our farmers and everyone involved.
“If the finest wines in the world can trace their origin all the way from the vine to the bottle, why should the finest chocolate be any different?”
~ Christopher Boodoosingh, CEO
GRAN COUVA REGION, TRINIDAD & TOBAGO 🇹🇹
Cocoa Republic sources 100% of its Gran Couva beans from the only Rainforest Alliance Certified Estate in Trinidad. The Gran Couva region of Trinidad & Tobago is renowned for producing some of the finest cocoa in the world. It consistently wins international recognition for producing some of the finest flavoured cocoa.
This region’s loamy soil and undulating hills combined with a near perfect climate is perfect for growing it. These unique conditions result in some of the most exquisite flavoured chocolate with a myriad of distinct fine-flavour notes.
