Information About the Beans/Pricing
Fermented and sun-dried Trinitario cacao beans from a single origin, San Antonio Estate in Gran Couva, Trinidad & Tobago. Gran Couva is renowned among cacao origins around the world and has been consistently awarded for its beans.
The beans are USDA organic-certified by CERES and are sourced directly from origin. Estate owner and manager, Richard de Verteuil, invested in a modern post-harvest facility during the conversion to organic certified operations. The estate spans approximately 110 acres and produces between 3-4 metric tons of cacao beans per year as well as different varieties of bananas, mangoes, avocados, and coconuts.
The exposure to, and sustainable use of, organic matter from fruit trees on the estate for over 70 years is reflected in this unique cacao flavor profile, which evokes bright fresh fruit and browned fruit notes, which are accompanied by fruit acid and mild acetic acid in a pleasant balance.
