"Sarah, just be aware that October is THE absolute wettest month of the year in Costa Rica. With that said, I can suggest at least one place where you can ask if they will have you. If interested, contact me privately."
"No, food grade Teflon is not toxic. How else would there be millions of Teflon-coated nonstick pans out in the market?
Cocoatown will sell you the stones with the original crappy plastic bushings. Up to you to have new bushings…"
What a lovely surprise to get a message from Guatemala! Nice to hear you like Kees' Metropolitan Deli. Next time when you visit The Netherlands (or maybe Le Salon in Paris?) please let me know. I just took a look at your website. Beautiful bombones and packaging! And of course I'm very curious about your chocolate! Although I already tasted 478 different kinds of dark chocolate I've never tasted a single origin from Guatemala. So I would love to order some bars. Could you please send me a mail to arrange this? The chocolate world is a small world: I was at Valrhona's Ecole summer 2003...and you met Paul de Bondt I read...also a chocolate friend of mine. He did a couple of workshops for Original Beans.
thanks for your invitation to be your friend, I do like your pictures and I see you make chocolate your self. Great work and if you should be in Paris sometime lets have contact...)
