Cocoa Republic was founded in 2016 on the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago, which we loving refer to as the “Cocoa Capital of the World.” Trinidad is home to the Trinitario variety of cocoa and is the native home to nearly two-thirds of all cocoa varieties known in the world. We handpick the best genetic variety for our bars and hand craft 100% of our chocolate in Trinidad & Tobago.
