Hi Jim,thank you for your comment on our cocoa knife. This is the standard tool used here in Grenada and has been since cocoa was first produced here as far as I can tell. It is very efficient, a 'push me pull you' device! We keep it sharp with a file and this one was bought last year at the local suppliers L.A. Purcell. If you like , next time we go to town, we can see if any are available and send one to you.best wishesHeather.

Hi Jim. Fully fermented and dried is fine. Some suppliers often do a light roast/toast at about 175 for around five hours claiming it preserves the flavor. From experience it tends to really flatten the flavor profile. So that is not what I'm looking for. Fermented is fine.What do you have available.
