The Chocolate Life

Discover Chocolate and Live La Vida Cocoa!

The purpose of this discussion is to create a place where Hawaiian cacao farmers can identify themselves to other members of the Hawaiian cacao community as well as to people looking to source quality beans from Hawaii.

If you are a cacao farmer working in Hawaii and are currently offering beans for sale - or want to or intend to offer beans for sale at some point in the future - you are encouraged to identify yourself in a reply to this discussion. 

If you know of a cacao farmer working in Hawaii who should be listed in this directory, please add them, OR, get in touch with them to let them know to add themselves to this list.

PLEASE! Put each entry into its own reply to make it easier to find them and organize them later on.

It's not necessary to give explicit contact information (web robots may scrape phone numbers and e-mail addresses), but please indicate the nearest town/city and island where you are working. You can (and probably should) indicate whether or not you are making chocolate or plan to make chocolate from the beans you grow.

Brian Yamamoto at the Kauai Community College is growing ~20 trees near Lihue. In January I helped him and our students ferment, grind, and pour that winter's harvest into chocolate bars that were snapped up in 30 minutes. Hopefully Brian will promote cacao growing in Kauai as many farmers and others are contemplating getting into growing cacao there.
Nice article on Cacao growing and chocolate production on the Big Island in the current Ke Ola Magazine. You can read it online here:
