Most memorable chocolate experience:
When we did the first tasting of the Cru Sauvage at Felchlin.
My favorite chocolate is:
Cru Sauvage by Felchlin

Here I give you the link to an article from Rowan Jakobsen. He wrote a nice story when he was riding with me in early 2010:

Our company Rainforest Exquisite Products was founded in 1998 in La Paz, Bolivia. check out the page to learn more about our operation and achievements.

Also have a look at when you want to know what we are up to in terms of cacao farm investment in Bolivia.

hi Volker
thanks for all your work... we just received 7 bags of the alto beni and it looks great. Very cute tiny beans , nice and clean. roasted some yesterday and will make a small batch but may hold off and process the rest with our new setup ( Scirocco roaster/ Mazzetti ball mill...)

I'm operating a cacau farm in the region of Bahia, Brazil and woulg like to exchange ideas and experiences with you. Your discussions on chocolayye life have been interesting and it's possible that some of our experiences could be mutually beneficial is shared. Drop me a lne at when you have a spare moment.

I am currently making changes to our farms to elevate the quality and efficiency and would appreciate hearing some of your thoughtd on fermentation batch sizes, ways to use new technology and farm management practices.

Best regards
Jim Lucas

Welcome to TheChocolateLife. I very much appreciate your diligence in working with the cacao farmers in the Beni region of Bolivia in and around Hacienda Tranquilidad to bring the beans that Felchlin uses to make Cru Sauvage to their attention. It is a remarkable chocolate and a remarkable story and I know everyone here would love to know more about your efforts on this and other Rainforest projects.
