"Go for views plus tour of small fort"
This is the best location for early history and a free tour
guide was helpful. Not overwhelming at if for nothing else,
go for the view of Scarborough and the ocean (Trinidad
can be see in the distance on a clear day). There is a mu-
seum that closes as 4:30 p.m. Around 10 original cannons
are on display, one wall, and the restored Powder building
along with some good plaques describing a few locations.
It will take about 30 min to one hour to visit. The hospital
on site just closed and it will be under restoration to the
original fort buildings probably over the next decade.

Cocoa has been grown on the is-
land for many years. And now
that people really appreciate great
tasting dark chocolate, Tobago fi-
nally offers a gourmet chocolate
bar totally made here from bean
to wrapped bar! This is thanks to
the long term perseverance of
Clement Olando Bobb who has
spent the last seven years turning
himself into a "bean to bar" choco-
late maker! But making hand-
made chocolate bars is far from
Every step of the process en-
hances the flavour of the final prod-
uct which is why you start with a
really flavoursome bean. The best is
Trinitario which is indigenous to
Trinidad and Tobago. Clement's
beans are organic and single estate
sourced from the Louis D'Or Estate
in Tobago, recognised and awarded
as a world-class quality cocoa at
the Cocoa of Excellence Awards
2011 at the Salon du Chocolat,
Paris. There are two types of bean:
one with a citrusy flavour and the
other with a dried fruity flavour, the
mix of these varies as will the re-
sultant chocolate. A new variety
specific to Tobago, a Crillo (Creole)
pod with white and purple (the nor-
mal colour) beans with a wonderful
flavour, is in the process of propa-
Pods are harvested when they
turn from green to purple and then
to a beautiful yellow/orange colour
and the beans can be carefully re-
moved. After this the real work be-
First step is the fermentation
process: fermentation is done in a
three high stacked box system. The
beans cascade from one to the next
over a seven-day period. This
process kills the germinating seed
and allows natural yeasts to grow
to produce the flavour.
The beans are then dried for
seven days, slowly for the first 4
days and then full sun for the last 3
days. In the past they were placed
on a shallow floor beneath a roof on
rails so that they could be covered
if rain should fall. Charlotteville has
a number of these still standing.
The dry beans are then roasted
at a specific temperature and
cooled immediately to get that in-
tense flavor from the roasted
The beans are now cracked and
winnowed to remove the husks,
after which you have the 'nibs'.
These now have the real chocolate
flavour, all the bitterness of the
original bean has gone.
Finally the nibs are stone ground
producing the cocoa liquor as the
cocoa butter is released. Unrefined
sugar is now added and it is then
left to grind and refine for 72 hours.
After 'ageing' for two weeks, the
chocolate is melted and 'tempered'
giving the bars their trademark
'snap' and 'shine'.
Final stage: unwrap, eat and
