Trinidad's cocoa production dates back a few centuries. It is assumed that Criollo cocoa plants were brought to Trinidad from Venezuela, however, the variety was nearly extinct due to diseases. A new variety had to emerge and this is a hybrid between the fine Criollo and robust Forastero, which is known as Trinitario. The excellent Trinitario beans thrive with strong Criollo imprint in Trinidad and the Island is renowned for its superb cocoa quality and fine flavor.
