Kokoleka O’Ka Aina is a startup company establishing cacao groves on the north shore and windward coast of Oahu, Hawaii. Our aim is to create a vertically integrated, fully organic system that will create fine, craft-scale finished chocolate from our own crops right here on the north shore.

Some of you may also know me from the other part of my chocolate life as one of the owners of Bittersweet Chocolate Cafes in the Bay Area of California.

Aloha, Seneca!

I am Madel, a Fulbright scholar working with Dr. Skip Bittenbender on cacao at UH. We are listing the cacao growers, propagators, artisan, chocolatiers in Hawaii. We are planning to convene these people to discuss on the cacao industry here in hawaii and maybe visit their farms. Can you please be one of them and kindly email me your phone number and exact address so we can contact you anytime?

Mahalo and God bless you!
