Product description

Cocoa trees (Theobroma cacao L. of the family Sterculiaceae) are generally 4 to 8 metres high but can reach nearly 10 metres when they are in the forest. The cocoa tree is characterized by a straight stem, a light whitish-coloured wood and a thin, smooth brown bark. The fruit, the pod, is 15 to 25 centimetres in size and contains about 30 to 40 seeds which, when dried and fermented, are known as cocoa beans. The beans are brown to reddish-brown on the outside and are covered with a whitish husk.

The ideal conditions for production are characterised by rainfall of between 1150 and 2500 millimetres per year, a temperature ranging from 21°C to 32°C, a dry season of less than 3 months and deep soil rich in organic matter.

There are three varieties of cocoa. The most widespread is the one commonly known as Forastero. Rather bitter, it represents about 90% of the world production of cocoa beans and is mainly grown in West Africa and Brazil. The second type is known as Criollo. Giving "fine cocoa" type beans, its importance has declined but it is still present in the Caribbean, the West Indies, Venezuela, Papua New Guinea, Sri Lanka, East Timor and Indonesia. The last category, Trinitario, a hybrid between Criollo and Forastero, has a rather fine but not very intense aroma.
