Hi! Are you giving it away?

What kind of beans are these?

World daily price  currently is around $1.30 a pound! 

  • "The ICCO daily price for cocoa beans is the average of the quotations of the nearest three active futures trading months on NYSE Liffe Futures and Options and ICE Futures US at the time of London close."

And these are prices for the big guns of the chocolate Mars, etc.

I was given to understand that this site is for serious chocolatiers who are looking to differentiate themeselves from Mars and Hershey and who are looking for the best beans out there (not necessarily the cheapest) to bring to their discerning clients!

Dear Ravi,

I think you might have misinterpreted the post. The beans sell for between 3.75 and 7.50 a lb. depending on quantity purchased. I could charge more if you like but I want to deliver fine beans for a reasonable amount.


Thanks for the reply.

Where are the beans from, I mean the ones you are selling at a $1/lb?

Are their origins certified?

Anybody can go to Ghana/Ivory Coast and buy tons of beans and flood the market with give-away prices driving away bona-fide certified bean suppliers , lowering the quality of  offerrings!


The beans are on sale for current list price minus 1.00 lb. Again I think you might have misinterpreted the post.

Check out our website for bean origins.

Thank you for your reply.

Sorry! My mistake!

I just want to make sure that beans for discerning chocolatiers looking to produce the best chocolate should have access to the best out there, duly certified and all!

Especilly since it is very  difficult to verify outlandish claims that I have been reading on the websites of certain companies!
