Jeff Pzena replied to Clay Gordon's discussion Unfair Trade in Belize - How Kraft Shafts Cocoa Farmers
"Clay, I'm very familiar with the situation with the specific co-op and at least generally familiar with how Fair Trade operates. If you rely on your numbers and figure out the financial impact of each farmer on a percentage basis, you would…"

"Hi Jeff- we used a gas dryer that we found the safety and removed the thermostat- replaced it with an oven thermostat. The drum needed to be modified because it broke the beans and they would fall through the cracks and eventually caused a fire. If…"

Jeff Pzena replied to Lemm Huang's discussion Molding Chocolate
"I had the same experience until I accidentally left some molds under an air conditioner. It worked perfectly. I've found 60 F and a fan works very nicely."

Most memorable chocolate experience:
Making hot chocolate while camping in the jungle in Belize starting with cocoa beans.
My favorite chocolate is:
some I made myself. about 65 percent cocoa, all from the bean, no cocoa butter, 10 percent milk powder, and 25 percent sugar. Very rich.

Hi Jeff- we used a gas dryer that we found the safety and removed the thermostat- replaced it with an oven thermostat. The drum needed to be modified because it broke the beans and they would fall through the cracks and eventually caused a fire. If your handy and don't mid a little electrical wiring- it's an easy mod. Good luck

Thank you i really appreciate it- unfortunatly i cant attend the Belize trip but would love to know more about their history w/choc and utensils/ dishes used for it. Pls ck out my pics of the Mexican choc pot- really interesting with a wide bottom and skinny neck, they stick the molinillo in and mix the hot choc vigorously until a froth forms. They also are famous for adding cinnamon to choc- mmmmm love it - what flavors to Belizians add?

Great to see you have joined C-life! We're really looking forward to taking our group down to your Lodge (and to hang out with Clay) in Belize this coming May. We do have a bit of space left if anyone still wants to go - deadline is 2/6/08 to reserve your river-view cabana! Chocolate, travel & snorkeling - 3 of our favorite passions in one place!

Jeff-or Clay- curious- do the people of Belize also use a Molinillo (sp.) to whisk the hot choc like in Mexico? Im not sure if thats unique to Mexico, but they have used them since Aztec times- I have a picture of its use on my page- makes a nice thick froth on top- sold in all the shops, handcrafted in wood with beautiful designs.
