Here a nice article in theHonolulu Weekly that mentions The Chocolate Life as "the facebook of chocolate";Kokoleka O'Ka 'Aina, started by Seneca, a regular on The Chocolate Life; us atMadre Chocolate,and other new goings on with cacao and chocolate in Hawaii, including the Hawaii Chocolate Festival that just happened yesterday which was a blast. Hope some of you were able to make it there!

This is great! I was just joking last week during a lecture about "retiring" to Hawaii and growing cacao. My husband says we don't know anything about farming. This post led me to Seneca's blog which looks like a great place to start! I'd love to visit the farms there in the near future. This also led me to your website and as an avid supporter of American bean-to-bar producers I can't wait to try your bars! Maybe next year I will make a trip out for the festival.

Thanks, Brad! Hopefully someday we can achieve a fraction of the great thingsyou've done withchocolate!

Come out and visit us sometime in Oahu!

We almost got a bar ofyourchocolate here, but our "messenger" from Calgary ate it all enroute since it was so good, and all we got were the cool looking packaging!
