First of all, it would be helpful if you could define the terms "high quality" and "very costly" (in my experience, quality and cost is relative).

As for the "very mild flavor" - this could be explained by the fact that Trinidad is the eponymous home of the fine flavour cocoa variety Trinitario. Trinitario is a hybrid of the bulk Forastero and the revered Criollo.

The high price you refer to is likely to be a market reflection of the cocoa's relative scarcity.
