Machine-dried beans are produced in quicker time by other farmers in nearby villages and other parts of T&T, but it is Montserrat’s cocoa that is sought after by international chocolatiers.
They search out the unique flavour of these “single domain” beans in Montserrat and selected parts of the world for their chocolates.This fine flavour cocoa is not traded on the international stock market, like bulk cocoa from Ghana and the Ivory Coast. Montserrat farmers negotiate directly with chocolatiers for their prices. Ivory Coast cocoa, for instance, is traded on the stock market for around US$2,500 a ton, while Montserrat farmers can get between US$4,500 and US$6,000 per ton. 

Cocoa farmer Jerome Pino had brought the beans he harvested all by himself from his seven-acre plot for fermenting, drying and selling at the San Antonio Estate. “Previously, I would harvest it and cover it with fig leaves for seven days to sweat it, spread it out on tarpaulin in my yard to dry, and then dance it to polish it. “I would then bag it and carry it to a cocoa agent (CCIB) in Tabaquite to be sold. “Now, I just harvest and all the fermenting, drying and exporting are done right here. “I have more time to spend cutting the grass between the cocoa trees in my field.”

Pino, a lighthouse attendant, cuts all seven acres by himself because no one in the village wants to work for $125 to $150 from 7 am to midday. “The weed whacker was the best thing invented since sliced bread,” he said. The unique self-draining Montserrat clay and the special Trinitario cocoa tree may be behind the prized fine flavour cocoa bean, farmers believe. But the mystery of Montserrat’s cocoa has not quite been solved. “The Cocoa Research Centre is doing a flavour assessment to understand why our cocoa is different to that from other parts of T&T and the world,” said Lee Sam, president of the co-operative.

There is no sight at The Priory of one of those blue ceramic plaques that mark out former residences of celebrated politicians, writers, scientists or explorers. Yet for a time this striking gothic villa, once set in acres of parkland, was the most famous home in London. The scandalous shenanigans behind its crenellated walls lifted the skirts of Victorian England.

Charles Delauney Turner Bravo was what contemporaries would have called a cad. His wife was a woman of – if not ill – then of fairly loose repute. In 1876 their turbulent marriage ended in one of the most sensational murder cases of the century. The starched prudery of the age was elbowed aside by public prurience as the nation listened in to lurid tales of drunkenness and debauchery.

The Priory stands on Bedford Hill in south London’s Balham neighbourhood. On the edge of Tooting Bec common, its whitewashed, wedding cake façade is today hemmed in by modern shoebox apartments. The house itself has been split into flats for young professionals. If the grandeur has been lost, the mystery remains. A century-and-a-half after Charles Bravo’s demise, writers and amateur sleuths are as intrigued as ever by the unsolved crime.
