From where I come from we grow on trees and we are called cocoa.

I personally come from Trinidad and I am the finest trinitario cocoa you can find because I am the best and far from modest.

I was born from a delicate flower and when I was harvested with hundreds of cocoa pods, the farmers took thousands of cocoa beans to the fermentation boxes and the drying houses to help us become ready for Chocolate making.

I am Bean to Bar chocolate which means that I was roasted with care by an
artisan chocolatier who knows exactly how I grew and understands that cocoa is for chocolate what grapes are for wine.

You can find me and my chocolatier at the ‘C’ Note Artisan Chocolate.
