Harrods Partners With The Trinidad & Tobago Cocoa Company

Harrods Partners With The Trinidad & Tobago Cocoa Company For National Chocolate Week

October welcomes the start of National Chocolate Week, and to celebrate, Harrods has partnered with the Trinidad & Tobago Cocoa Company to launch an extra-special chocolate treat. Available to buy soon in-store and online, the Trinidad & Tobago Single Estate Chocolate Box contains four unique chocolate bars which are almost too good to share! Despite being made from the same type of bean – called the ‘Trinitario’ – each bar has a unique flavour and is named after the estate at which the cocoa was harvested:

1. La Reunion 2017: An award-winning, government-run estate which is the flagship for the Trinidad & Tobago Fine Cocoa Companies.

Tasting notes: green aromatic notes with a sharp citic acidity and mild floral aromas.

2. Ortinola 2017: An estate chosen for its history, it has been producing cocoa since the 1830s.

Tasting notes: mellow and smooth on the palette with tropical yellow fruit notes and a subtle hay aroma.

3. Aripo 2017: The smallest of the four, this estate is ‘intercrop’, meaning fruit trees are planted as well as cocoa trees.

Tasting notes: dried fruit notes with a slight bitterness linked to hazelnut, and a savoury finish.

4. Tableland 2017: A brand new plantation – this is the estate’s first harvest of the size, but the quality has surpassed any that the Ministry of Agriculture have seen before for a new estate owner.

Tasting notes: Bright fruit and herbal notes with a sweet vanilla aroma and a long finish.

Cocoa beans first arrived in Trinidad over 450 years ago, and by the 1900s it was the dominant crop with a total of 30,000 tonnes of cocoa being produced for export. Today, the country only produces 500 tonnes and this number continues to decline. As a result of this, the Trinidad & Tobago Cocoa Company have since committed to the mission of increasing cocoa production to 1,000 tonnes by 2020. By closely working with the farmers on a number of estates, they offer state-of-the-art equipment and processing facilities which allow the beans to be processed into cocoa mass in the same place as they are sourced.

The Trinidad & Tobago Single-Estate Chocolate Box will be available in-store from Tuesday 10th October 2017 in the Tea, Coffee, Pantry & Chocolate Hall, Ground Floor, and online shortly after.
