I am currently sourcing cacao beans for start exploring making chocolate from beans. We are located in Hong Kong and would anyone know any good sources for beginners? Thanks!

Yellow-seed.org has a growing bunch of high quality beans directly from the processors/farmer co-ops that you can buy from. I help to represent one of the sources there if you would like some sample beans I would be glad to send you some...https://www.yellow-seed.org/products/eco-cacao-53991890-519d-4894-b9ed-25ce6c3c1f6d

Hi Jay - I am looking at sourcing too - that is how I knew of you.  Can you send to Australia?  If so I'll go through the Yellow Seed site.

Cheers

Hi Jay,

Sorry for my late reply. I haven't been actively checking the forum post but now I am back! 

I would love to receive some bean samples for running trial. May I know how it works?

Best regards,

Katie
