As a chocolate enthusiast I recently began to wonder why Indian grown Cocoa is not as widely used to make fine chocolate .I am currently working to promote the use of Indian cocoa beans in the international Artisanal Chocolate industry. I am working directly with the Farmers to procure good quality Cocoa Beans by paying them a higher price than what they are currently receiving. I would like to ask all of you fantastic Chocolate Makers out there if you would be willing to try using Indian Cocoa and thus help me (in my small way ) to improve the lives of cocoa farmers in India .

 We would be willing to try your beans provided they are certified organic. I have yet to try an Indian bean.
