Thanks for friending. We would love to service your account. Can you tell me the url of your business and a little bit about what you do, for how long, etc.? I look forward to hearing from you and talking shop.
Feel free to email me: matt at caputosdeli dot com.
Hi Melanie, thanks for your message! Both my partner and I would love to come to Hawaii to visit you and bring you green chili. Where in NM did you live? Do you know Nat? He is an ethnobotonist with the UofH and grows his own cacao and makes chocolate as well. Do you need a pastry chef or would you be willing to host chocolate history lectures? Contact me sometime. :-) Mark
I can't remember if I told you that my real name is "Lowe". I was in your Kailua Sweet Paradise store in Nov 08 and Dec 08 when I was visiting from NC. It was great to taste Hawaiian chocolate! I wish I could get back there again soon, but don't know when that might be.
Hi Melanie, thanks for the assistance. I contacted Hawaiian Vintage Choc. and Hawaiian Chocolate Factory. I also sent an email to a company that seemed to work with farmers to help promote growing cacao, but I dont have that contact info with me. I actually called them as well and left voice mail, but no luck.
Again, even a small amount is all that we need for this Dept of Ag project. I really appreciate any help you can give.
