I am new to chocolate life and am looking for information on how to buy/import cacao beans from other countries. I am thinking about getting 100 kilos each, from a variety of countries to make some bean to bar.
Is it easiest/cheapest to buy from an importer, and who would people recommend?
If I went to costa rica, found a great farmer, bought some beans, how would I get them home?
Where can I find a listing of fair prices for cacao so I have something to compare to?
