A tour in two parts, both great fun.
Part one a walk through the Rabot estate, looking at the planting and rearing of the cocoa, a brief description of the various strains grown and also the co-operative planting of other trees to provide shade and produce fruit. Cuthbert was our guide and his enthusiasm for his task was evident throughout the morning, as was his enthusiasm for the way the estate treat the staff.
We stayed with Cuthbert for part two of the tour where we were joined by another group for the chocolate making, this was good fun and informative; the result was tasty even if it wasn't quite as smooth as that produce by the hotel.
As part of part one of the tour we both grafted shoots onto rootstock and we will go back to see our trees in production in the guest orchard, I recommend this tour to all keen gardeners or chocolate lovers.
