Photographer's Note

We visited a cocoa processing factory and were shown the processes. The beans are taken out of the pod, they are white and slimy at this stage. They are laid out and covered with banana leaves and left to ferment. Then they are laid out on enormous trays to dry in the sun. Traditionally they are turned by being walked over on a very regular basis. The beans become dark brown and are taken to be ground and made into chocolate. The chocolate from Grenada is particularly good. Seek it out.
In the picture the guide is turning over the leaves to show us the beans. I think this was from the Dougalston Plantation which sadly has recently been devastated by fire.
