Is there really a fourth spieces of cocoa bean in Ecuardor or are they just trying to brand their production as special? Anyone know anything on this.

Tell us more and does Ecuardor have a distinctly different variety to be considered in a class with the 3 other varieties commonly accepted as different. PS why are all origin chocolates from most of Africa grainy that I have tasted to date?

There's supposedly a new high yielding variety being grown in Sacha, Ecuador. HIgher yielding than CCN-51. I don't know the specifics but they're calling it "super cacao" here because it supposedly has great flavor and enormous yields. I was just at Tulicorp last Wednesday and they claim it's true....

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
