Description

Located 150km north of the coast of Venezuela, the island of Grenada is known as the ‘isle of spice’ famous for its plantations of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and turmeric.

Since 1714, fruity and floral cocoa has been cultivated here, which benefits from the dense and generous volcanic soil.

L’Esterre Estate has been owned by the Ramdhanny family for over 70 years. The single estate is located in the northeast of the island, on the outskirts of the rainforest.

The family grows cocoa and nutmeg in strict accordance with the rules of organic agriculture and agroforestry, thus maintaining the richness and fertility of the soil.

The beans are harvested during the dry season, between November and April, then fermented at the property for 7 to 8 days before being dried in the sun for 6 to 7 days.
