Trinitario cacao is prized as a fine flavour cacao and named after its birthplace of Trinidad. Trinitario’s origins lie in the wiping out of practically an entire crop of Criollo cacao trees in Trinidad in 1727 by either a disease or some other natural disaster. In an effort to save the tree, the effected plantations were planted in Forestero trees. The two cacao trees hybridized into the new variety that was named Trinitario. This hybrid result contains both the disease resistant properties of the Forestero and the prized flavour values of the Criollo. Trinitario is now grown in a variety of areas such as Columbia, Mexico, Venezuela, and the Caribbean, in addition to its original birthplace of Trinidad. Chocolate bars consisting solely of Trinitario chocolate include Pralus Bars, Rio Caribe by Domori, and Carenero Superior by El Rey.
