Trinidad, Rio Claro House of Cocoa
Rio Claro is located in Southeastern Trinidad and the area's farms are well suited to grow a wide range of crops – the many small streams, ponds, hills and trails make this possible. Crop rotation is popular among many of the traditional cocoa, citrus, banana and coffee farmers. These microlots have been brought to market through the amazing effort of Gewan Gangaram and his central fermentary, helping regional farmers to adhere to the best practices in cocoa growing, harvesting, fermentation, and drying. The results produce consistent high-quality, uniquely flavored cocoa. Through our roasting process, our chocolate has been nominated two years in a row for the Good Food Awards.
