C ocoa bean is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of the Theobroma from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted. They are the basis of chocolate. The fermented beans are dried by spreading them out over a large surface and constantly raking them. In large plantations this is done in huge trays under the sun. It is believed that the improved blood flow after consumption of flavanol-rich cocoa may help to achieve health benefits in the heart and other organs.

 

The quality of the Dominican cocoa is one of the worlds highest and the country`s average annual production is more than 50.000 tons.
