To all Bean Testers!
I would love to hear from experts in Chocolate who might be interested in testing our beans. We grow cacao beans organically and have improved our drying system. The parent stock of our cacao comes from criollo, trinatario and forastero varieties. Our volume is about 20tons of dried beans 15 tons are processed into traditional cacao liquor for chocolate drink. I could send 5kg of beans for the test and hope to hear an intelligent opinion of our bean quality.

Most people don't know that there is a very long history of cacao in the Philippines. Until recently, with chocolate made from beans from Davao I don't think many people knew that cacao even grew in the Philippines.
Is there some particular interesting history in the beans you're growing? And what part of the Phillipines are you growing in?
HI Ernesto, i would like to test your beans.
i'm based in South Africa, how do i get them here?
Hi Ernesto, I would be interested in giving you feedback on your beans. I have had a lot of experience with different origins and have done some work with Australian farmers on the issue of post harvest processing and its effect on the final chocolate. I have worked with a lot of cacao from the South Pacific too, Vanuatu, Samoa, Fiji and PNG and could give feedback on how your cacao relates.
Let me know. Cheers
I will have my first 5 kg ready by Monday next week. Can you please email me your address. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sent you today via POST AIR PARCEL 4 kg of Dried Cacao Beans. Looking forward to your receipt of the beans.
what is your "standard of choosing" your tester? my name might sound useless to you but at least say you are not interested in us would have been fine. I did quickly to respond to your request but you didn't even consider my email....
BTW we opened our small factory 3 months ago and we have already moved over 1.5T of chocolate made from beans.....
best of luck!!!
