Hi Peter, just tried a range of your chocolate, nice work, thought the Vanuatu was nicely done. Just curious about the Australian bars you are doing, it says Daintree Estate is your source. I know Barry and he is particularly secretive and now he is just selling beans? I haven't spoken with Barry in a while but i do keep in contact with some of the farmers and this was news to them.
