Who doesn’t love chocolate? The enthusiasts of this tasty treat far outweigh those who dislike it, and there’s a good reason behind it. Not only is it the ultimate comfort food, providing our brains with a much needed endorphins boost; dark chocolate has also been proven to have a myriad of health benefits. Let’s get real here, though: most of us prefer the less bitter types that can satisfy our sweet tooth and give us some well deserved guilty pleasure. And it’s such a feast to the senses when it not only tastes good, but also looks delicious!
When talking about chocolate in general, one would probably think of Belgium or Switzerland ahead of any other country. We prefer to go to the source, though, and follow the main ingredient of chocolate: the cocoa bean. And not just the main players in the cocoa market – that wouldn’t be much of a rarity, would it? As we are after all things quirky and “craft”, this article is about a small artisan producer based in Grenada, the Caribbean, where the sunshine is plentiful and the cocoa trees grow in abundance.
Gabu Chocolate is Lisette Davis, a one woman operation, based in a small fishing village of Gouyave. Not only is she a chocolatier; she also runs the Rumboat retreat, which offers an authentic Grenadian experience. If you fancy staying amidst nature, falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the unspoiled environment, enjoying your glass of quality rum after an active day of hiking, then look no further. You might even sample some freshly made chocolate and pair it with a golden-brown beverage, which will guarantee an increase of your serotonin levels.
