The famed Rio Caribe line takes its name from a fishing village in the north
eastern part of Venezuela. The village was among the first Spanish settlements,
quickly becoming an important cacao trading hub for the Crown. Today the region
produces a wonderful Trinitario bean, a cross between the Criollo bean found
in the west and the Forastero bean found in the south. This unique bean merges
a highly aromatic quality of the criollo bean with a high productivity of the forastero,
creating an exquisite cacao flavor.
