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....
