Trinidad & Tobago Estate Chocolate

Trinidad & Tobago Estate Chocolate

Duane Dove was born in Tobago and lives both in Tobago and Sweden. His family had a small cocoa plantation that he wanted to expand. He decided to attend a renowned hotel management school in Canada. He then trained as a sommelier in Stockholm. He wrote a book about Chocolate and rum. In this way he was able to combine his passion for good food with his Chocolate. His culinary knowledge is also reflected in his Chocolate.

Duane came up with the idea of his own cocoa plantation in 2003, when he moved back to his native Tobago to find the land for his plantation. The whole process from bean to bar, which he affectionately calls bean to belly, was more difficult than he thought. He battled the bamboo forest that overgrew the land and brought in an army of workers to transform the land into a three-star showcase plantation. In the end, it took 5 years, with 150 people, 1600 days, and 56,000 hours of labor before he could produce his first tablet.
